You might be a 2-year old if...

A few weeks ago when we were in church Levi was being really, really noisy. We've been working with him to try and get him to use a "quiet voice", so I picked him up and whispered to him, "Levi, we're in church and we need to be quiet so people can hear the speakers... can you use your 'quiet voice'?"

He looked at me with his "serious" face, thought for a second, then almost inaudibly he whispered back, "No."
