The Age of No & Go Away

Oh parenting...sigh...
Kalea is using her words a lot more these days. She's a slow talker, but we'll attribute that to her attachment to her soother. She is learning to take it out when she needs to talk. Although I'm not sure it was such a good idea to teach her that because now we have entered scary territory. I don't know if it's just because she's been stuck inside with me all week or what, but it feels like it's her "time of the month" or something! Talk about attitude! If I ask her any question she answers "No", and if I ask her a question like "Kalea are you hungry, would you like some dinner?" she responds, "No! Sure!" "Kalea do you want to watch a show?" "No, ya sure!" Maybe she's just confused about how to answer in the affirmative without the negative? As if... She's also telling me to "Go Away!" at least 2-3 times a day. Which I can totally relate to, because, quite frankly I wish I could tell her that sometimes. But what I don't understand is why she will yell my name forever, I'll respond and after about 2 minutes she's telling me to go away... UGH!
Moving right along... She has made a little potty progress this week. As in she has made a concerted effort to let me know she has gone in her diaper and needs it changed, and she's even gone to the potty a few times. She's starting to not want to wear her diaper anymore, either, so hopefully this time she's actually "ready". We'll see. It would be awesome to have her out of diapers in the new year...
In other news... I have been SO sick for a few days. It seems like since I've been married I don't just get sick I get REALLY sick. It is so strange and so annoying. I thought my head was going to explode yesterday, literally. But it seems like I get this once a year now, same symptoms and everything. I wonder what it is?

Bens keeps putting me in time out and telling me that I am not his favourite. Awesome.

Awww...so fun. I remember doing a post similar to this at right around the same age. 'NO' gets to be SO ANNOYING! haha. Good luck with potty training too. Fun stuff ahead! :) Oh, and definitely feel better soon!
