I've tried to set up our house so that it's a "yes" environment for Emma, but I often still feel as though I'm saying "no" to her all day long. "No, don't dump the box of spaghetti on the floor." "No, don't get the trash out of the trash can." "No, don't throw crayons into the toilet." "No, you can't climb on the table." I read a blog entry today that made me think about this whole thing. Clearly, she can't throw crayons in the toilet, but I'm going to make an effort to always say yes when I can.
