Doesn’t Know His A, Bee, C’s

| Related | March 30, 2016

(My wife is playing with our four-month-old son. She suddenly calls me into the room sounding excited.)

Wife: “[My Name], come here! You have to see this!”

Me: “What?”

Wife: “[Son] said his first word! I got a video, do you want to see.”

Me: *thinking this is a bit early for speech but excited to see* “Yes, show me!”

(My wife plays the video.)

Son:Ba-ree-ka-loooo-beeee-po-la.”

Me: “That’s not a word.”

Wife: “He said “bee.””

Me: “That doesn’t count. He doesn’t even know what a bee is. He’s just babbling.”

Wife: “It does count. Bee is a word.”

(We fought about this for the next 30 minutes. Our son said what I consider his first word, “cat,” three months later.)
