No, get out of the refrigerator.
No, stop opening the oven.
No, do not take the remote and run, pushing buttons Mommy does not know how to reverse.

Isn't it fun! I love when the books say to be positive. At this age it is hard. I do like how you tell him what he can do when possible. (Sit on your bottom, etc.)
