“MINE!!!!” (From the mouths of babes…)

mouths of babes

The following is an inventory of words that Magoo can say at nearly 2 years old.

This is undoubtedly a self-absorbed piece of bloggy wank, and also completely uninteresting to you.

But it might be….

Cos I want to know (and I want you to tell me), are most kids’ first words the same (apart from the standard “Mummy”, “Daddy” repertoire)?

Or do our families and social environments have a big role to play?

Is there, perhaps, a toddler-book-publishing conspiracy? Cows, sheep, babies and…(oh yes!) Peppa Pig are key protagonists of this literature and thus of my child’s vocabulary.

Anyway, here are my words. (BTW we drink a lot of tea in our house, and I am convinced that we talk about poo way more than the average family).
