Thanks to my dear friend, Lynn's comment on yesterdays post, Rowan and I ended up having a very peaceful day filled with yeses. Here is some of what she wrote: "The more the yeses, the fewer the nos,the better the day goes!Have a lovely 'yes' day tomorrow!" And so we did.

Somehow that little poem stuck with me and I managed to go through the entire days without saying no to Rowan and you know what? He only tried to test me once today and when he realised that I wasn't going to say: "No! Uh-uh!" he stopped. It takes some quick thinking to come up with something appropriate to say every time but it was not nearly as hard as I thought it would be.

So Lynn, thanks for the encouragement. We are going to try to keep it up.

  1. You have to rent the movie "Yes Man" - it's incredible what that little word is capable of - even if it is fiction :)

  2. Yay! Yay! Yes! Yes! Make little notes that say "Yes" and post them all over. So happy to hear you had a good day :)
