Bud's assertiveness skills are better than ever.
These days when someone invades Bud's personal space - tries to cuddle when he's not in a cuddling mood, or (heaven forbid) plants a kiss with out expressed permission - Bud is quick to redirect: "That's not nice. You have to do nice things. Otherwise, there won't be any (fill in the blank with whatever activity was scheduled to happen next)."
Yesterday, Bud's Nana joined him on the couch, but was apparently sitting too close for comfort.
He picked up his book and moved to a different location, saying matter-of-factly, "I'm moving. You're dissterving me."
File this one under "be careful what you wish for." We've been telling him to use his words...
