As a new Nanna, I’ve been babysitting my darling little granddaughter a lot because both her parents work full-time. She’s just on the brink of saying her first proper word. Predictably, my son thinks it’ll be “Daddy” while my daughter-in-law says it’ll be “Mummy”. What a pair of boring losers, lol.
When I watch trashy morning television with my granddaughter sitting next to me, I like to point at her parents’ big fancy wedding photo above the telly and say “awkward!” We both share a giggle over this.
Oh Yak, I’m not giggling now. My granddaughter’s first word has turned out to be “awkward”. Even worse, she now points at the photo and laughs whenever she says this. The more I tell her not to, the more she thinks it’s a game. It’s only a matter of time before her parents realise what’s happened. What can I do?

Dear From the Mouths of Babes,
It’s too late. There’s nothing you can do. The horse has bolted and the baby’s talkin’. You’re screwed.
Hope this helps.
