A debate rages on in the household. Over Aidan’s first word.
Evan’s first word was dada. Sean’s was mama. Aidan had to be the tie breaker.
Aidan said mama first. But I didn’t mention it to his father because of the separation and wanting his father to have his own joy of hearing a first word.
But after a week, Aidan had not said his word in front of his father. After a week, Aidan said dada. So his father believes that dada is Aidan’s first word, and nothing I say will dissuade him from that belief, which he is vocalizing as gospel truth.
But then there is the baby book. She who fills out the baby book, records history.
