Non Nonsense

(I am helping my husband chase after my one-year-old niece as she is toddling her way around the house. I have just followed her into the bedroom and redirected her from digging in things.)

Me: *in a comical growl voice* “No, no, no, no, no, no, no!”

(I realize the implications of using this voice and just saying ‘no’ repeatedly so I change tactics slightly.)

Me: *following her down the hall as she makes her way into the living room, and using the same voice* “Non non non non non non!”

Niece: *imitating my voice*Aughwahbluhbluhpbbbtwah!

Husband: “Before you came around the corner I could only imagine a bizarre monster following her shouting ‘No!’ at her in French…”

Me: “Shush! She still hasn’t mastered English; I still have some time before she realizes I never changed the meaning!”
