There's always a caveat

I've noticed lately that every time I tell my preschooler he can do something, there always seems to be a caveat. Every "yes" is laced with a "but don't do this."

Here's what I mean:
  • "Sure, I'll cuddle with you... if you promise not to wipe your nose on my shirt."
  • "Yes, it's OK to bite your nails... just don't bite other people's nails."
  • "You can walk ahead of me ... wait, not that far ahead of me!"
  • "I guess you can lick those blueberries off your plate... no, you can't lick them off the floor."
  • "You can have that piece of candy... please don't eat the wrapper... or feed it to your brother."
