My BIL and SIL have 5 children. 7, 5, 4, 3, 20mo. The younger 4 are girls, and girls they have babied and pampered since day one. Any little flinch of their eyes, snap of a finger, and Mommy or Daddy come running.
Anyway, they talk "baby-talk" to them still. Their "names" are "Brayd", "Har-har", "Scar-scar", "Tadie-Mae", and "Zazzy."
SIL's family are "Mimi", "Mai-mai", "Auntie Mar", "Papa", "Nana", and the girls have since been calling me "Bay-bay." Which, has driven me absolutely bonkers since I was really young, and they call DH "Tiss." (Name is Chris)
Their vocabulary consists of repeated single-syllable words, and I feel awful that the 5 yo has to wait another year to start Kindergarten because she can't speak clearly.
The two older girls, 5yo and 4yo, get to do 3 hours of speech therapy twice a week.
Anyone else wish they could step in on someone else's parenting sometimes?
