Sentencing Has Commenced

Up till now, he’s been babbling: lots of words, phrases, fragments. The only sentence-like things he’s uttered has been phrases he’s picked up wholesale, like song lyrics (“I like you”) and titles. But yesterday, our boy strung together a sentence for the first time. Was it an expression of maternal love, of deep philosophical import, of  faith in the future? After a fashion. Because the sentence was:

“I like pizza.”

Well, don’t you?

    That sounds like a profound statement that will take him far in life. Mine recently pointed at the television and said, “That is a television.”
