So, my three-year-old has taken to calling us--both of us--"Ma-Da." As in, "Mama-Dada." "Mommy-Daddy."
Oh, she knows the difference between the two words. She knows how to apply them and has been doing so 'correctly' for the entire time I've known her.
So, does this bespeak of laziness? efficiency? radical linguistic hybridity?
I'm not sure what to do with being called Mada.
