Here you'll find current musings, as well as the archives from two blogs of yesteryear: YoungMarriedMom and What I Learned While Writing a Novel. Please comment and share. We love well when we are in conversation with one another.
Being a twenty-first century parent means learning a whole new vocabulary. Our entry into the parenting world over the last year has taught us words such as “baby wearing,” “tummy time,” “snuzzler,” “teething bling,” “Boppy,” “exersaucer” . . . the list goes on.
In an effort to keep ourselves entertained, we’ve added some terms of our own. For example, the safari-themed activity gym in our apartment is known as “the jungle.” The under-the-sea-themed one at my parents’ house is “the ocean.” This week, we got an exersaucer for Jacob, which I hereby christen “the U.F.O.” (more on that in the video below).
With the arrival of said U.F.O., Jacob created a vocabulary of his own, too. Its pronunciation involves a prominently placed tongue and produces an inordinate amount of drool. But we (John and I) think it’s cute, so we wanted to share.
Say hi to my lovely friend Val!
