Alex babbled mama and dadad yesterday. I know it’s just a fluke, but he’s babbling them, and it’s really nice to hear. Even if I do have to sit back and go ,”omgwtf I’M the MOM.”
I wonder what his first words will be.
I wonder exactly what my first words were.
I don’t know for sure because there are two versions to the story.
We lived over the family business, and sometimes Dad would have events that would start at 7pm. On these nights, my mom would have dinner made and ready for him to eat around 6pm. It never failed that he’d get the first forkful of food halfway to his mouth and the door would ding that someone was early.
His comment was always, “Goddamn people.” As he put down his food and walked downstairs. (In the days before the microwave this was truly sucky because there was no reheating dinner.)
One night, event scheduled, fork almost to mouth, door dings.
From the high chair, the angelic daughter (aka me) chimes in, “Goddamn people.”
My Dad had a tendency to be SUPER nice and chatty on the phone. Often he would complete his smoke blowing up ass conversation and hang the phone up and then exclaim an emphatic, “SUNUVABITCH!” (It really should have been “sumbitch” considering where we lived, but I digress.)
You can, of course, see where this is going.
I had a few old phones that I played with. There I was, babbling away in a cheery voice. Then I hung up the phone and angelic daughter (aka me) exclaimed an emphatic, “SUNUVABITCH!”
I can only hope Alex’s first words don’t happen while I’m driving, if they do, I predict they’re gonna be, “Fucking idiot” or “Move it jackass!”
I think more people have stories like this than PARENTS will cop to. Funny!

Yay for babbling mum and dad! That is great.
My first word was Dad. Boring.

My first word was Da-da. Again, boring.
The Little Mister babbles mum-ma and da-da. He says “hi” to everyone who will look at him. He signs “bath”. I think his first word was “buh-bye” though; he says it and waves at the same time…

My brother’s first one was “chit,” to which my mom apparently said, “Oh, shit, I can’t say shit anymore.” My son’s first was mama. I wrote down the first 312 words he said. You’ll be nuts and do something like that, too.

It is nice to hear that first mama and dada. My daughter said dada first, I was like hey I am the one feeding you!
I have no idea my first word. I have three older brother and it was probably “pick up your socks”. They all left their socks around the house. To this day, I can’t stand seeing socks laying around my house. Ahh, issues.

I have no idea what mine was either, but Shortman’s first was ‘airplane’.
Seriously. I’m sure it was an accident, but he was completely infatuated with airplanes so I guess it’s possible.

Bwahahahahaha! That was so funny. My son’s first words were “what’s that?” (he waited a bit longer than some to speak – not too long, but long enough to give us a nice clear “first word(s)”). It wasn’t too long after that, that we were sitting in a parking garage behind a long line of cars waiting to get out and he said “MOVE IT, PEOPLE!”. Not quite “jackass”, but that came later. Trust me.

My kid’s first word was “pampa” – as in Pampers. As in diapers. As in, the babysitter always used “pampers” as a generic word for diapers, because I always bought Huggies.

I love you. I love you because you can’t figure out when you became the mom and I love you because you cuss like I do. Which is to say, my child said fuckit at 2yrs old and I had to tell her, “Those are DADDY words, not LB words.”
I didn’t say they aren’t mommy words. 😉

Your parents are consistent. At least they are in agreement that your first word is a swear word, LOL.

Little Dude’s first word was “duck.” And yes, I know it wasn’t the naughty word that rhymes with duck, since I watch that like crazy!
I’m the bad mommy who hasn’t tracked his words and other things as well as I should have. The blog hopefully is helping me with that.

Being the fourth of four, no one has a clue what my first words were. 🙁 Does remind me of a story of a friend whose first-born was in front of her (my friend’s) conservative MIL saying “holy shit, holy shit…….” ah, from the mouths of babes.
Considering today’s world…he might text message it first…

After being cut off in traffic one morning, I pulled into daycare and escorted Nina to her classroom. As we entered the building, a woman accidentally stepped in front of her, and Nina’s response was to yell, “HEY LADY! WHAT THE HELL?????” Yeah. That’s what I did when I got cut off in traffic. Proudest moment of my life.

aw, my kids were so boring. altho i have a clear picture of my oldest at 9 months, rolling around in one of those exersaucers that you’re not supposed to put kids in, saying in his high-pitched little voice: “hi. hi. hi. hi. hi. hi. hi. hi. hi. hi. hi. hi. hi. hi.”

Boo didn’t speak for a long time. When he did it was just reciting the alphabet. Till one day when MPS was giving me a hug, Boo came over and pushed him out of the way and said ‘Don’t touch Mummy’ and then he said that ALL. THE. TIME. Freaking out people in the supermarket.
