Do you want to have fun?....No

Wesley is at this wonderful/terrible stage that his answer to everything is "NO."  It is very typical of the 2 age but it is HIGHLY ANNOYING at times.  What 'No' means to a 2 year old...
1. No = no
2. No = maybe but you have to entice me
3. No= I am testing the waters and I want to see how long it takes you before you put me in time out
4. No= I am tired and that is all that can come out of my mouth
5. No= because I refuse to give you the benefit of saying yes (even if I know I am going to have fun)
If you have a two year old you know what I am talking about! 

On Sunday my neighbor was excited to show off his new toy of a golf cart for his mountain house.  Well, Lawson was so excited to get to ride she immediately joined Bob.  Then there was Wesley...he REFUSED to get on.  Saying "no, I am not riding" 
I should add this was situation #5!! (I have other pictures but they refuse to load so my story feels choppy)

Anyway, we got him on...with him pouting. 

Lawson had a good time!!

Although, he was quite temperamental getting on and squealed "No" guess who had a good time too?

This too shall pass.  Just want to make sure when the 3rd one is doing this exact same number I remember "it is a phase." 

Oh, and let me add "Momma does know best!!" ;)

Oh... I'm not looking forward to this stage. Maybe we'll skip it? Ha... yeah right!

Glad fun was had by all... eventually.

At least its just a phase! He is still sooo cute though so that makes it a little better...right? Ha ha! I know it won't be long before I get to experience this phase too!

my favorite is:
me: "Do you have to go to the bathroom?" (because someone is doing a little "pee-pee" dance
Carson: "No!"
me: "Carson..."
wait 5 minutes...
Carson: (running and holding himself) "Pee-pee! need to pee-pee!"
You have to love them right??

Thank goodness Logan isn't the only one going through this...we're feeling your pain too!! I have to remind myself that this too shall pass. I tell you though, this phase is wearing thin!
