DaDA dAda DADa… Word to your mother… and father

Our daughter started babbling when she was closing in on six months and her first coherent word was DADA and all of us were swift to derive its meaning. And the Indian parents that we are, we went “What a smart kid! By the age of ONE she will be reciting the String Theory at the back of her hand”… Little did we realise that the back of her hand was always in her mouth.
