Aawww – I just love this post from The Lucky Mom. However, a lot of you – like me – have boys (and girls) who are toddlers and younger. You may read this post and think – “there is no way this will work for me.” BUT …it’s Friday so we’ve got the weekend to experiment – right?

I was telling my kids “no” a lot.
“Will you make pancakes for breakfast?”
“Can we go to see a movie today?”
“Can I invite friends over?”
