Dads Share Their Kid’s First and Funniest Words

Confession time, I haven’t the foggiest idea what either of my daughters’ first words were. I’d like to think each kid blurted out a loud & proud “dada!” because, well, duh, but I’d only be guessing. “Emancipation”? “Hummus”? “Let’s Go Red Wings!”? Maaaaaaaybe, but no, probably not.

Complicated Donuts And A Fat Boy
