if you don’t mind, i would like to make one simple request:

when you are speaking with my child, i do not mind if you find yourself speaking in higher tones, or if your words become sing-songy. i do not mind if you even find yourself engaging in a wee bit of baby talk. we all do it from time to time.

however, i would like to ask that when speaking to him, please refrain from using improper English.

Saying, “Is you standing on them foots?”, is unacceptable.

with kindest regards,
