Unless you're a toddler, in which case it may also mean yes, maybe, or "I think I'm hilarious".
Everleigh is a pretty positive gal, but lately she's taken to saying no (sometimes a double no along with a head shake and/or wagging finger) to just about everything. This makes it confusing when she says no about having a drink or being hungry or needing a diaper change, because oftentimes the true answer is YES, YES, YES.
So I'm trying to read her mind all the time...does she really want milk? Should I go ahead and give her a bath right now? Why won't she give her poor mother a hug? ;)
Just when you think the communication gap is closing, no means no but is also means everything else under the sun. Ahh...the joys of toddlerhood.
