"No, David!"

With both of our kiddos, we used the "No, David!" Method. It's from a book called "No, David!" and it shows pictures of things that kiddos shouldn't do and has a mom telling him "No, David!" through the whole book. We love it. No we can just say "No, David!" if we need him to stop doing something. It's not foul proof or anything, but it's still awesome. We also like to think our kids have an alter ego called David because our precious angels would never do anything wrong (ha ha ha ha ha). When I was a kid, my mother called me "Roberta the Neighbor Girl" and told me to "go home and bring back my nice, sweet, obedient girl Deb." It was very effective. I, however, can not STAND the name Roberta now. Sorry to all of those Robertas out there.

It is common for people to think we named our child, David. My favorite was when Claire about 18 months and we'd say it and people would look at us like we were crazy. 2 weeks ago, we had a friend ask when we changed Matthew's name to David. And another time a person, who had just met me and found out the names of my children, asked if we changed Matthew's name legally and were still trying to get used to it being Matthew. HiLArious.

I love alter egos! That is truly awesome. And your children's names are too. Just sayin.

That is great. Is that from the "No, David!" children's storybooks? We love those :)
