Nellie Says “No”.

I posted last week about Nellie’s vocabulary (I posted at 10 PM on a Friday night. I win at internets, yes?). Well, over the weekend she learned a new word.


So far, she has only used the word when I’m trying to get her to eat something she doesn’t want to eat. For example, I made her a delicious quesadilla and this is how she reacted:



Apparently, said quesadilla is laced with arsenic and poisonous snakes. After discovering that Nellie could say “noooooo”, while we were out to eat at Chili’s I offered her a purple onion from my salad. I took it, held it to her nose and went “nooooo” while turning her head away. I thought it was so freaking cute, I kept doing it until she cried.

Not only do I win at internets, but I also win at motherhood. You can go ahead and give me my Mom of the Year Award now, thanks.

  1. Ah, yes. The “No”. My daughter says it pretty much every other word, and she’s been saying it for 3 years now. Good times.

  2. Ha! That’s hilarious. I’ve done a few things like that when I wanted to get footage of something or a picture, and she has ended up crying. Oops.

    I’m dreading the day that Ava decides to say “no”. It really could be any second, now, too!

  3. Gotta love “NO” …. or learn to hate it 😀 LOL!!

  4. No to quesadilla! No to everything forever! ICK NO DISGUSTING DIE.

    Also I post at 10 pm or later all the time. I don’t care. I’m a rebel.

  5. She’s so cuuuuuuuuuuuuuute
