Thank you, so much! I try to temper the No’s by changing it up: saying Not right now or That’s maybe not the best/safest idea.
It’s definitely a wake up call when he says stuff like that 🙂 Thankfully, it was said with a sweet concerned smile ;_)

Hahaha, adorable. 🙂
Sweetness. Some day they will THANK us for saying no!
