Out of the Mouths of Small Boys

You know you say something too frequently when your kids start saying it too. You know you have a serious problem when they say it in their sleep. I think I have a problem. I may need intervention. 

What did he say, you ask? 

He said, "No!No!No!No!No!" 

Because mothers of small children cannot say "no," only one time, in a calm tone and at a low decibal. It's physically impossible. Laws of nature compel me to say it 5 times rapidly, loudly, and panic-stricken. Said laws of nature being the ones that indicate that something is about to break, fall, or otherwise require me having to clean it up.
