No Okay

Just a quickie here!

My little granddaughter - age three - just started to talk about four months ago. She has some developmental issues but with the help of two therapists - one for behavior and the other for speech - she has come a long, long way in the past year and is now starting to open up more and more every day.

One thing she has picked up though is the way she responds to a question if it is something she doesn't want to eat, doesn't want to do - whatever - her response quite frequently will be "No Okay."

Trying to figure out how she came to say this - it finally dawned on me - DUH, takes a while for the lighbulb here at times. She was repeating what we say to her if we ask her a question about wanting this or that or wanting to do something and if we got no response often we would say to her "No, okay!" The difference being the comma there which, in general conversation adults don't pick up on so how could one expect a three-year-old to know the difference.

But it is just so darned cute to hear her say this - "No okay!"

No, okay is just what you are my sweet little Angel girl! Please stay that way.

little ones are so cute when they talk anyway. I hope all goes well in her therapy too.

And my thanks to all of you for the kind words there! She's my little princess, so sweet and ornery too, but just so doggone cute! She also said her first full sentence tonight as well - "Gracie, get out of there!" She was talking to our cat!
