Words Before ‘Momma’

monkey-bars

I tried not to take it personal. Sure I literally grew a human and brought it into this world. Sure, I gave up drinking and sushi and made sure all my cheese was pasteurized for like 9 months… but it’s ok.

After a while it was downright comical… but now… NOW over 630 days later of cleaning puke and bums, carrying a child, sleepless nights, solo nights while Adam is away for school, bananas smashed into my new dress… we FINALLY have it… ‘MOMMA’!

We just about wore the word out in its first weekend in our existence.

And for even more comic relief, here is the list of words that came before, many much before ‘momma’:

  • Trucks (obviously)
  • Dadda
  • Otto (dog #1)
  • Chili (dog #2)
  • Jeep
  • Dump Truck
  • BIG Truck
  • Airplane
  • Boots
  • Boat
  • Blue truck
  • Helicopter (or copTAH)
  • Dog and woof
  • Cow and Moo
  • Cat and Meow (a really good meow too)
  • Elephant
  • Chicken and cluck, cluck
  • Duck and quack, quack
  • Trees
  • Roar
  • Outside
  • Car
  • Puddle
  • No
  • Mine
  • My turn
  • Bottle
  • More
  • Pooh and Tigger
  • Up
  • Binky
  • Uh-oh

You get the picture… it was a lot. Momma seems to be here to stay, we practiced over 630 times this weekend, and I couldn’t be happier. Man, that kid sure knows how to build up anticipation.
