playing favorites

Over the weekend, Malcolm seemed to pick up a new mantra ...

When crawling across the floor: "Da da da da da!"

While eating his meals: "Da da da da da!"

While kicking on his changing table: "Da da da da da!"

From his car seat during a ride in the car: "Da da da da da!"

During a shopping trip to Target: "Da da da da da!"

Even in his sleep over the baby monitor: "Da da da da da!"

Well, the last one might be a bit of an exaggeration ...

At any rate, why is it that the child that I spend nearly every waking moment doting over, is well on his way to saying "Dad" instead of "Mom?"

Is this someone's idea of a cruel joke?
