Ghostly meanings

G.`s language is getting better by the day. One area we are getting a lot of practice with is "words to say `Don`t do THAT!`" I`m pretty sure he has a quite precise understanding of these words but, going by his reactions, this is what he makes of them:

I feel a bit bad about using "O-bake". Perhaps we are giving him a complex, some deep seated fear of the dark (which he associates with O-bake) that will harm him in later life when he wants to become a potholer or something. But it works and sometimes you need something that works.

That's exactly what he does. Another thing he does is to wake up in the middle of the night and cry--- "Mummy-no!"(G's meaning "Mummy had something interesting and she won't let me touch it!")
