I know that this was directed to grandparents, more so, than parents. But I thought I would share something I found interesting. A favorite coffee cup of mine is one that has the word for “Dad” in various languages layed out all over the cup. One thing that struck me was that almost all the versions were the same word. Of all the words that have been created over the millenniums, the first two words we associate with love (mama and papa) were actually created by children, at a very short time in their development, when all nationalities speak the same language.

I find that thought comforting at times.
