The Don't-Want-Do-Want Monster

We have a problem.

The Don't-Want-Do-Want Monster has moved in and looks to be making himself pretty damn comfortable here.  You know the story - tired 2 year old who doesn't quite have the communication skill to verbally express what it is he needs to get back on track.

Would you like a cuddle?  "Noooooooooo"

Would you like a mandarin or would you like an apple?  "Nooooooooo"

Put both away.  "wait! wait!".   Would you like a madarin?  "noooooooo".  Put it away "wait, wait". And so on and so on.

I have actually just asked him if he'd like a chocolate biscuit and he's shrieked as if I'd suggested that I was about to force feed him engine oil.

So if you happen to see us out and about, one screaming 2 year old and one frazzled mother repeating under her breath "it's just a phase, it's just a phase" feel free to point and laugh.
