i can't help it, my dd(3) has just growled said "i love you" for the first time ever! She has signed it before, but never ever said it. (Granted she followed it with smacking me in the face with her shoe, but I'm not complaining)

One of the very most non-nesty and un-vipery bits of MN is that we are all absolutely delighted for you.

Boast away!

My DS2 first said Mummy at 3yrs 7months - after not having ever spoken before, and after a year of intensive speech therapy. Fast forward another 4 years...and I threatened to sellotape his mouth shut* earlier if he didn't stop talking for 2 minutes. You have just reminded me to stop, smell the roses, cast my mind back a few years, and be VERY thankful that he can talk at all. <<Makes mental note to give him an extra big hug tomorrow>>

*Disclaimer I wouldn't REALLY sellotape his mouth shut.

Well done alowVera's DD.

loudlass especially as duct tape is so much better at the job.
You made me laugh and go and hug my own DS, thank you

alowVera Thu 21-Jul-11 23:10:59

Lol at NaM and Loudlass. Agreed duct tape is better as it's wider and stickier.
I can't get Sellotape to stick to anything!

NorksAreMessy Thu 21-Jul-11 23:14:54

alow did you try and get her to say it again so that it wasn't your imagination? I am so pleased for you

alowVera Thu 21-Jul-11 23:27:39

I did; that's when she smacked me in the face with her shoe. She wont say it again for months now.

Still loving this thread! smile

DontCallMePeanut Fri 22-Jul-11 17:21:45

YANBU! And that's so lovely!

DS (3.5) has taken to telling me he "loves me more" and carrying on til I stop arguing... grin

youarekidding Fri 22-Jul-11 17:30:46

YADNBU. That's wonderful.

Can't help thinking the shoe smack was code for 'mum, I've just said it once, don't push it.' smile

loudlass electrical tape is the stickiest thing around. wink Lovely post though, really heartfelt.

Parents who counter-brag piss me off, but as the boy I am going to mention is not mine, not even blood-related, but DW’s cousin’s GS (work it out for yourselves) I’m going to allow myself this one. He is 2y 7m. DW and I sent to see his mother and she and DW dropped me a hint to take him out to the garden so they could talk. So I put his shoes and socks and jacket on, and he said, without prompting “Thank you. You did that very well”.

Gorgeous or what?

Andrew smile

giyadas Fri 22-Jul-11 18:33:57
