The Age of No

No, don’t eat food off the floor
No, don’t pick your nose! Call Mom for a tissue!
No, don’t help yourself to the Brita filter.
No, don’t step on your brother.
No more singing, go to sleep!
No, don’t open the refrigerator.
No more chips.
No, don’t drink the soapy bath water! I am begging you.

No song, Mommy.
No diaper change, Mommy.
No Elmo!
No Blue Guy!
No Daddy!
No broccoli, Mommy.
No oatmeal! Un chip?
No [Roars like a lion]
