He Knows What I No
Ki-woon sits at a booster seat at the dining table. He holds a water bottle, the kind with the exterior flip-top straw attached to a straw on the inside of the bottle. Ours, however, have no interior straw, so they will spill if they're tipped upside down.
"No!" He declares, smiling happily. "No, no!"
He tips it over. Water puddles on the tray.
He sets the bottle upright once more.
Smiles. Because it's okay to do, when you're not quite two, as long as you know it's a no-no.
