Y4 - 110/365: Dada...Mama...Dada!
It's funny to look at things through Ryan's eyes sometimes. I've noticed on more than one occasion Ryan will point to the female character in a book or on TV and call her "mama" and point to the male character and say "dada." It started with Peppa Pig actually. The intro would come on and he would point to Mommy Pig and Daddy Pig and say these things, but I wouldn't think much of it because they ARE, in fact, the 'mama' and 'dada' of Peppa and George.
This afternoon I noticed he had one of the flyers out of the local paper and he was pointing to each face calling them, "dada, mama, and dada," and then he said, "two dadas!" So, from this I can only guess he thinks that any woman is automatically 'mama' and any man a 'dada.'
After two and a half years in a long-distance relationship, I packed my life of 29 years into 21 boxes and moved to England to marry and be with my husband, Matt. Now I'm reveling in the youth of my 30s in Great Britain, supply-teaching in primary schools near Birmingham and enjoying newlywed life, being a mommy, and all the surprises they bring!
