Enough is Too Much

When my nephew was about four or five, he'd always mangle the saying, "enough is enough" to "enough is too much" (*) -- which, when you think about it, is really what one means by the phrase.

(*) If full, what he'd say was, "enough is too much ... for a boy", by which he meant that something or other was too much for him.
