From the Mouths of Babes…

by The Daddy on January 18, 2011

The Momma is convinced the Knob is saying more than the Daddy thinks. The Daddy has his own opinions on what counts as actual “language” and what is merely sound-making, the two not being the same. The Momma is a little more optimistic and nurturing, while the Daddy focuses on the science and actuality of speech development. The Mommy is more fun to be around.

There are worse things than counting “Daddy” as his first word. When NHL was a baby, we were changing him and B asked him “Who’s booty-licious?” NHL looked up at us and, with perfect enunciation, said “boo-ty-li-cious!” Luckily, B’s parents were there to witness it otherwise they’d have never believed us.

Oh I’m terrified of what his actual first words are gonna be. As much as it doesn’t seem like his language is very far along, I know I’m underestimating what is ACTUALLY sinking in. I fear what of my many colorful words and phrases will come spewing out of his milk-hole when the time is right for word-making.

mommy i want to go home what do i have to do to come home? Like it was her fault. This is not fair to put a child through this. I am not as wrieord about myself as i am an innocent child that within the last 2 years just months apart lost her sister (my other daughter), her grandfather, and her grandmother. (Whom she has so very close to my parents were her babysitters her whole life) Now she’s with strangers they call her fathers family that before this she had never really met. I love my daughter she is all I have left in this world and because 1 woman doesn’t like me ( which I find funny the woman who took my daughter is the same took my biological mothers children from her) she is going to put my baby through more grief then any adult let alone a child should have to suffer. This system is wrong I need help deeply before my child is so scared she’s never the same. Please, please someone help.

I guarantee my son’s first words will be Boob, Tit, Milk Bag, or something along those lines.

. HOWEVER, Woman B claimed she had never said aniyhtng to A about my wife spreading the rumors and that she was simply concerned about her. She was sorry, apologized, but understood if my wife didn’t trust her as a friend. My wife was hurt, but choose to forgive woman B and move on and attempt to repair things with woman A.The next morning, woman B went to A and told her what my wife had done to her. Woman A was concerned about the accuracy of the information she was getting from B. Woman A asked her again if she was sure that what she had said at the party was true, including the party about my wife telling many different people and maliciously attempting to start the rumors. B said this was all true again, and that my wife was really upset with A and wanted to bring her down with what she said.A week later, my wife tried to talk to woman A to apologize for what was said. Woman A would not even look at my wife. She said she was done with her as a friend. She explained that woman B had come back to her to tell her she had been talking about her AGAIN, and she reiterated about the fact she had been spreading the rumors maliciously and my wife wanted to hurt woman A. None of this was true. Woman A called my wife a slew of fowl language in front of me, in front of dozens of her close friends and in front of many of my wife’s friends. She stated that she was lying because woman B had said these things to her twice, and that she wouldn’t lie.My wife is woman A’s boss. Woman A is letting this effect her work. Woman A has cut off all communication with my wife outside of work. Woman B is now completely avoiding my wife entirely as well as woman B’s husband, who is a close friend of mine.My wife forgave them both for what happened. Several weeks has passed. I have a hard time forgiving these people and wanted them to ever be back at our home. They were both very good friends of my wife’s and now she feels alone and isolated because her two best friends destroyed their friendship. I even lost a close friend. The collateral damage goes very deep, since these were mutual friends of almost everyone we know.My wife wants me to move on, but I have such a hard time with that. My wife was trying to do the biblically accurate thing to hold a fellow sister in christ accountable and her other sister in christ; who was not a new christian, but a strong one, threw it in her face. She broke her trust not once, but twice.I just think she doesn’t need to be friends with these people if this is how they treat their relationships. I don’t feel comfortable having them around my home if this is what they choose to do.What do you think?
