He said his first REAL word

Other than 'ada and maaaaammmmmmmmmmmaaaaa.

We were in the car with my sister and her kids the other day when I turned around and asked the boys how school was going.

With that, E piped up with "'cool?"

My sister said, "Did you just say school, Ethan?"

"'cool," he replied.

They all proceeded to freak out cause the kid said school.

I can't even get him to say "mama" on command and the kid comes out with "school?"

With two decades of higher education between the two of us, I guess the word "school" should not have surprised us. His father was so proud.

I guess I should be glad it wasn't the s-word or f-word.

yes, be VERY glad it was something you can tell the in-laws he said. School...now that is good... He's gonna be a smart one!

That's great! And you're right...it could've been a much worse word than "school".

I have a close friend who lets the F-word fly in almost every sentence. This friend has a three year old daughter and so far, I have been truly AMAZED that her daughter hasn't been sent home from pre-school for cursing...'cause let's face it, kids are more apt to pick up words they're not suppose to say as to words they are supposed to say, right? :)

awww, very cute. my little one is starting to repeat everything now, like a parrot, of course she doesn't understand half of what she repeats, but it won't be long! and yeah be careful with the cuss words, they repeat those too!

That's awesome! Now the fun REALLY begins! It seems like 'mama' is like the last word they learn to say. At least, that's how it was for my kids. In fact, whenever I would ask my daughter to say mommy, she would always shriek "DADDEEE!!" You'd think they'd be a little more agreeable being that we gave birth to them!

It could have been much worst or in my case uneventful. My kid's first word was ice. Out the blue she just said ice.

Congratulations to little E--he is sooo smart! :)

Aw, how cute! Maybe E thinks that his cousins are cool cuz they go to school. Or that they're too cool for school?

And you're right that it could've been worse ... anyone who's seen "Meet the Fockers" knows that!

well, his father should really appreciate it. Thos s-word and f-word are used commonly and children's training must really be taking into serious considration.

Have fun
