No

Dot writes: Frank has said his first word, and it is NO. As the sole member of a vocabulary of one, it is somewhere between a word and a noise: sometimes he uses it in a contextually appropriate way (“Are you coming inside with Mummy?” “No” – with a mulish shake of the head as he stubbornly stays on the path), but sometimes he just likes to sit and say no, one, two, three, four or more times in a row. I wouldn’t call him a negative child. But he does like to dig his little toes in.
