“BackOMama” is my new favorite word from my totally favorite kid.
I admit to having had CNN on a LOT during election season but it was in the background and not something I ever pointed out or talked about with Sophia. I didn’t think a 2 year old would be up for heady political banter….call me crazy.
When were playing in the living room she’d come up to me fairly regularly and say “BackOMama”. I’d ask her again and again what she said. After all, “Mommy doesn’t understand….” is not a new phrase to anyone with a toddler. With a lot of determination, she’d say it over and over. Me, well I figured it was MAMA something and tried to figure it out that way.
The other day she pointed to the TV and said “BakOMama” when Barack Obama was on!!!! Brilliant! Lights flashed, voices sang and I finally caught on! Now she’s added “President” and “White House” to her conversational abilities…..I’m afraid we might have another political junkie in the making….
