One of the obvious perks of being a stay at home mom, is we get to see every moment of our children's development. It becomes particularly amusing and exciting when they begin to talk, We listen to them babble on all day long and learn their little phrase manipulations and hardily praise their abilities to tell us what they want.
Intern, it becomes comical when we find others aren't having such an easy time understanding our child. Especially those poor daddies who aren't there during the day to develop the talent of baby translating.
I had to chuckle the other night listening to an attempted conversation between my sweet Chet, and baby face Camden. While I was upstairs cleaning the office, they were downstairs wandering in the Kitchen.
" Dad, elp num num num mulk"
" What's up Champ?"
" num num mulk, elp"
" What do you need Buddy?"
"NAK, dad, Nak, mulk"
( This went on for quite some time, when I finally hear Chet say)
" I don't know what you're saying buddy, where's my translator, Honey! Nancy! where are you?"
I of course come to the rescue, and let him know that Camden would simply like HELP getting a SNACK, preferably some YUMMY MILK.
I haven't had a job outside of the home in 14 years. But if I needed to enter the work force tomorrow, I think I could safely add to my resume BABY TRANSLATOR.
