Okay let’s take a look at the combination of two things I enjoy when I get a chance– watching Jimmy Fallon and reading Parents Magazine. I think Jimmy Fallon is so clever, funny and kind. That’s why I like to watch him. And since he has become a parent he makes parenting a laughing matter too.
The most recent Parents Magazine included an interview with Fallon about the first children’s book he authored since becoming a dad, “Your Baby’s First Word Will Be DADA,” about the importance he placed on daughter Winnie saying “Dada” as her first word. He claimed to try to trick her into saying “Dada” first, by labeling everything “Dada” from “bottle to diapers to strawberries.” Now we know that isn’t the way to build language skills but it certainly might get a child to say Dada if she hears that word exclusively, and gives us a laugh in the process.
I can’t wait to get the book and post a review. Just have to wait until June 9 to get a copy! Stay tuned.
