For the longest time, Davis answered No to every question asked of him. He learned quickly to shake his head no and then progressed to the word no. You would ask, “Do you want a snack?” only to be answered with a no and then he’d make a mad dash to the snack cabinet.
A couple of months ago Davis learned the word “Yep”. So, he began answering questions with either no or yep. Well now, Davis responds to every questions with a very articulate “Yes” with extra enunciation on the “s”. He lies, even though he doesn’t intend to. To test this, the other day, I questioned, “Davis, do you have a dog?” Davis very quickly nodded his head and answered, “Yesss”. We don’t own any pets.
