Their Bad Mother

Word To Your Mother

Me to Jasper: Say Mommy!

Jasper: Dad!

Me: Say Mommy!

Jasper: Dad!

Me: Say Mom!

Jasper: Dad!

Me: Mom!

Jasper: Dad!

Me: Mom!

Jasper: Dad!

Me: Please say Mommy! Mom! Mom! Mom!

Jasper: Dad Dad Dad Dad DAD!

And so it begins.

There is nothing worse (in my mind) than a toddler who has learned how to scream/sob “Mommy” at 2am.
Celebrate the “dad”. Make full use of the “dad”. Trust me. You’ll thank Jasper for it as you roll over and continue snoozing.

Us, too.
Although NO has recently replaced ew ew ew ew ew which replaced UH OH which replaced dit-dee (daddy) as the favorite word from about the age Jasper is currently.
At least he will SAY mama, but only when prompted.
