Broken Record

Question: How many times must you repeat the word "No" before you officially consider yourself "sounding like a broken record?"

Is is 10? 100? 1000?

I think today I am already up to 100. I am feeling like I sound like a broken record. So, does that mean that I can actually start using that phrase? I am looking to you, old wise Mommies, because I am new at this game.

Seriously. I think I may just lose my mind. What does it take to get Kaiden to stop touching the TV, stereo equipment and glass on the fireplace? How many times must I say, "no" and remove him from the area before he "gets it?" And when he just laughs at me does that mean that he thinks it is a game?

I'm exhausted. I'm going to bed.

I think what's worse than the laughing is the hysterical crying when you tell them NO every single time.

HEHEHE!!! Yep, I'm a broken record too! What really get's me, is when Reagan hear's me tell her no, looks at me, and then proceeds to continue doing it. Ahh, the life of a Mommy... Blessings to you!

When my brother was little and anyone asked his name, he'd reply, "Brett Nono." LOL
