Cum mumba…

posted in: Family | 2

I’ve never really been what you’d call a ‘Baby person’, the kind of person who simply turns to quivvering jelly at the mere sight of anything under 6 months old. Yes I’ve recently had one and yes he was the most beautful thing ever, but I’ve always prefered kids when they get a little older; old enough to speak, or at least attempt to. It’s by far the funniest part of being a dad…

Sawyer began chirping away at quite an early age and we can now actually have fairly lengthy conversations. They don’t usually make a great deal of sense, but that probably appeals to me even more ๐Ÿ˜‰ At the moment Sawyer is like a little sponge; soaking up an alarming amount of information, which he then blurts out at spookily appropriate moments. It’s hugely entertaining as well as being a wee bit scary; especially for his terets mother ๐Ÿ˜ฏ But I think the one thing that endears me most to this age is the new words that us mums & dads learn; nonsense words that mean absolutely nothing to pretty much anyone else, but words non the less…

When my nephew was learning to speak a helicopter was a ‘hubcap’ and a fire engine was a ‘benbindints’ (don’t ask!!!) and for me they still are. In Sawyer’s world at the moment cucumber = ‘cum mumba’, toe nails = ‘tail nails’ & Cheerios = ‘hoopy hoops’ (which I think is much better!!!) to name just few.

I’d no real idea of exactly where this blog post was going, but that’s the beauty of a blog… It doesn’t really have to ๐Ÿ™‚
