I went out for lunch the other day with one of my friends and her small daughter, who is one of two children in the world I can actually tolerate.

My regard for her did increase when I was informed that one of her first words was 'shoes'.

She says it on demand too, which is nice. I gave her a clap every time she did to encourage her.

The other child I like is too young to speak at the moment, but I am whispering to her that her daddu should buy her a pony. This doesn't go down too well with the parents...

My little lass's first word was "No" at the age of 11 months. It's still her favourite word years later.

my first word was no at the age of 9 months, which was my mother's birthday. Lucky her, eh?
