Things Declan will say before he will say "Mama":
"Subu" - our nanny's kid-friendly nickname (short for Subhadra)
"Babu" - Subu's son
"Ra-ra" - his name for his sister
"Hiiiii, Jesus!" - this one I don't complain about
"Go Jordan" - as in Spieth, as in Daddy's favorite golfer
But not "Mama." Never Mama.
Also, earlier this evening I was the Mama who had a bare-bottomed toddler on her front stoop. Just... Why, Keira? I mean, I appreciate that she mentioned her need to use the bathroom before we went on a walk, for once, but I just wish she hadn't readied herself by removing her bottoms outside.
Kids sure have a way of humbling you, huh?
