Aug 14, 2012 Breaking News!!! Its official. My son said "mom" first. He has been saying it for a while, but last night he convinced me that my wife was the victor. My son fell asleep at 9pm, and while he was sleeping he was saying "mom,... mom,.... mom, ...mom,... mom...." He kept on calling for his mother, and right there and then I knew that I had lost the battle. I guess I have to convince myself that 2nd place is not that bad.
