Aren’t We Egotistical



Are they talking to us? Maybe or Maybe not.

Did you know that the words for “mother” and “father” are really similar, if not Identical, across tons of languages? Part of the reason has nothing to do with the languages being closely related either. There’s an even more self-centered reason for it lol. It’s because parents totally assume that their babies are talking about them! Isn’t it funny: “ma”, “pa” are some of the first and easiest language-like sounds babbling babies will make- and what’s the word for “mother” in English? “Mama”! It’s also “mama” in Dutch, and in Romanian, and in Catalan, Slovak, Quechua, Chinese, German, Russian, and more. These Languages have evolved so much that the first language noise a baby makes sounds like it’s saying “hey Daddy” or “Hey Mommy watch u doing” lol. Dads aren’t excluded either. “Papa” is in English, Cree, and Hindi! Isn’t it crazy that these words are built to flatter new parents especially our “Mothers”? Across language, time, and entire civilizations, we’re united by pointing at our babbling babies and saying, Yes he or she is calling my name. Just when you thought you were special huh lol! What a egotistical world.

Don said...

But it sounds so good, Champ. LOL! I remember the day like yesterday when my kids all learned how to say Mama and Dada. Til this day, it still brings a smile to my face.

25champ said...

@JStar..... I feel the same, but you have to wonder are they just making sounds or calling you esp in the first few stages of talking.

@Don....Brings a smile to my face just thinking about it, but I know my baby wasn't call me when she said da da :) It took awhile b4 she used it 2 get my attention.

Mizrepresent said...

To be honest, you may be correct, bc they always say "dada" before "mama", and you dayum well the mother is spendng the most time with the baby, lol. But i love it anyways! We all do!

25champ said...

@Mizrepresent....I can't lie I love it to :)

Ms. Camile said...

This made me chuckle hehhehe...Cute! Babies are so very cute, cuddly, and precious when they utter those first few words/sounds whether they be ma ma, da da, or pa pa. But soon their favorite words become "NO!" or "I not" lol and oh does the trouble begin.

@Ms. Camile my daughers name is(Kam) as well. I feel u my daughter says no when she means yes lol, but she used to say da da all day and I knew she wasn't talking to me. Just bable!

Ms. Camile said...

hahahha awwww HEY KAM! Well i dont have children yet but I';m very close to my lil cousin and she's one. She knows when she is saying no and she means it EVERY time lol. She even has a tude!

Katherine said...

Hmmm ... I don't know Champ! My boys have all grown up now. Maybe it does start as just sounds that babies make but these babies are smart & they learn very quickly! They will repeat whatever gets a reaction from us fathers & mothers. They are very quick to have us wrapped around their little fingers!!!

25champ said...

@Katherine.....I hear u they are def smart, but their first few sounds their not calling for attention. It's just bable. Both my daughters said dada when I would 't even be in the house. They didn't know the difference.lol

Petula said...

Egotistical? Possibly. But what if that's the way it's intended to be. God made babes able to vocalize their first sounds in a way to automatically teach them on saying their first real words. Fits two purposes: to touch a parent's heart, which I don't think is based in ego at all, and to teach children, which is our job. I'm just saying.

25champ said...

@Petula.....Great points! I'm sure that he did have a method to his madness :) point well taken. Good 2 hear from u again.

Zoe said...

Interesting! I never would have thought of something like this...

25champ said...

@Zoe....Glad it made u think. Haven't heard from you in a while I glad u stop thru :)

peaches27 said...

i agree wit u Champ that babies first start to babble sounds but at some point they do catch on an discern from ma n da da. kids r like sponges they absorbs n catch on to stuff about how we as adults say stuff n how things are used. it brought me a great deal of joy when our baby n my other daughter said mamma:) n even funnier when she was first learning to it would crack me up when she referred to u as mamma too lol:) n e ways its jus a beginning stages of development.

25champ said...

@peaches27....I know that they eventually learn how 2 apply it, but it doesn't change the fact that when they first say it..that it doesn't apply 2 us just yet. U know Kam was like the dinosaur "not the mamma" when it came 2 me. i was mamma 4 a minute :) but I agree they are like sponges and now I can't stop here from daying da da or champ champ lol
