A new kind of bedtime defiance

Every night, I lay down with Liam in his bed before he goes to sleep. Every night, I tell him “it’s time for night-night”. Every night, he usually protests in the same way: “no night-night!” Last night, he took a slightly different tack: “cancel night-night”. Because the computer has Cancel buttons, and that stops whatever you’re about to do, so of course that makes sense to a kid who’s always repeating what the accessibility tools narrator says.
