Teaser Tuesday



Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly book meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
  • Grab your current read (or any random book your 2 year old hands you)
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

I picked mine this week because my toddler handed the book to me randomly. It's not a novel but I have found it a good flick though with some really good quotes. My mum bought this for me many many moons ago with "All the advice I forgot to tell you... Oops. Love Mum" written in the cover. 
 There are no page numbers so I am just taking one random quote from the "For my daughter" Section and one from the "For my son" section.

Don't talk to children in coochie-woochie baby voices (it shits me)"
"Don't wax your chest (Or legs or arms. Unless you're and olympic swimmer or ballet dancer, then I'll understand. Somehow.)"

I sometimes wonder what effect 'baby talk' has on language development in infants. I've read that babies respond better to words in a higher register, but then again most people don't go around speaking in an artificially higher pitch.

Ha! This one sounds interesting. I can't stand baby talk either. I don't know why but I feel like talking to babies like they speak a different language isn't helping anyone.

I have to wholeheartedly agree, lol. Waxing is evil and baby talk does not help babies.
