From the Mouth of Babes

Two of the boys got flagged for potential speech issues this week. So, I've been navigating through the world of speech therapists and school services.

Since then, I've attempted to to pay more attention to their words. I've noticed just how much of my day is occupied with listening to the boys' words:

first words
articulated words
potty talk words
kind words
disrespectful words
intelligible words
big words
smart words
mean words
silly words
angry words

I've seen statistics that say men speak a third less words than women in the average day. If I'm this busy monitoring male words, my friends with daughters must never get a break!
