Automatic no starts very young

I know a lot of men, ok maybe not just men, who have an automatic no. Anything you ask them gets a negative answer until you talk it through a bit more. Eric apparently was like this as a toddler so I guess it isn't surprising Kiernan has inherited this trait :)

"Kiernan, did you knock over that toy?"
"no"
"Kiernan, do you need a bum change?"
"no"
"Do you always answer in a negative fashion?"
"no"
Dora: Do you see a sign?
Kiernan: no
Dore: pause..... Right! There it is! ;)

They're generally questions you know he doesn't understand, he just knows it's a question and that no seems to be the right way to respond. CRACKS US UP!

There's a new contest over at the Apples'n'Oranges blog - go check it out!

Finn hasn't learned that word yet. Nobody's allowed to say it in his earshot either!
