Omg I’d be thrilled if I found out this was my baby’s first word, even if I wasn’t there to witness it. Could rub that in dh’s face forever 😂
Agree with PPs, just bc he said it doesn’t mean he thought the nanny was his mom.
Also, “I did call my husband and ask him to tell her not to do that in the future.” — Could you talk to her about it? Is there a reason why your dh has to do it…?

it’s okay BEE, i know it feels awful to miss such a memorable moment. But the word MAMA is basically every baby’s first word. Although you were not there to hear it, your baby knows exactly who’s the mother and i think your nanny should let you hear the word yourself, let alone texting you and brags about it.

TheGridMonster : The reason my husband would talk to her as opposed to me is because I never see her. I leave before she gets there in the morning and come home after she’s already left (my commute is longer and I work 10-hour days in order to get every other Friday off). So my husband is the one that sees her each day. Our only interaction, unless it’s a random day I work from home, is via text message.

llevinso : Oic. Since she had told you about the mama thing I just thought it might be simpler for you to have the convo directly. In any case, hope it goes well!

TheGridMonster : We do text back and forth a bit throughout the day. She’ll send me pictures mostly, which I love. I just feel important conversations should be done in person, as so much can get lost in translation, so to speak, via text message.

futurerosiehanson : exactly this! Babies babble and some sounds are easier to make than others. The “d” sound is even easier than the “m” sound so, consequently some babies’ first sounds are da da but this doesn’t mean she/he is identifying daddy- it’s just a fun and easy sound to make.
