What is this Adventure?
Full-time Mama & Part-time school social worker in the throes of toddlerhood at its best and worst. In my short tenure as a member of the prestigious Mamahood club, I find the reality of it all to be amazing, exhausting, hilarious, challenging, a blessing, lonely at times, nostalgic, guilt-ridden, and the most wonderful thing that has ever happened to me...all at once. Sit back, read, laugh and cry with me on my adventure!

For Kieran's 18 month doctor appointment, the doctor informed me that he would be "expected" to say at least three words other than "mama" and "dada". At 15 months old, I began writing a list of words, a bit worried because "dada" and "ah ah" (Salsa) were about the only things he said on a regular basis other than what he said in sign language.
Slowly but surely, Kieran gathered a number of words like clockwork.
Now, it's about a word per day!
Today, he woke up and wanted "wa wa". He signed "water" like usual, but continued to use his new word, visually proud of himself for coming up with that one.
There is nothing cuter than seeing your 1 1/2 year old proud of himself.
Truly a gem.
I can't wait to see what he says next!
