Ever wondered at what point parents go from acting and talking normal to S-P-E-L-L-I-N-G shit out like they are effing 4th grade spelling bee champions? Well it is now. Approximately 4 months after your kid turns 2 they will start recognizing and clinging on to their favorite words.
At first Andy and I would just use other words to describe the same thing. “I was thinking about taking him to the pool” instead of “swimming”, but now he’s getting too smart for that shit too.
And it became painfully apparent that we are doing this more and more when my In-Laws dropped him off last night and said “he got really upset when we left A-U-N-T-I-E’s house….also he has a very serious injury because he pinched himself with the S-U-N-G-L-A-S-S-E-S”…..I mean things are getting ridiculous around these parts yo.
The good news is, turns out we still know how to spell things…..so yay for us and our old brains.
