There may be a time in your life,
when you’re serving your 11 month old baby dinner,
and you watch her feed herself bite after bite of matzohball soup,
and you say “Yeah!! Look at you! You’re eating matzohballs! Matzohballs”
and you watch her beam
and you say “Can you say that? Can you say ‘balls'”?
Yes. There may come a time when you ask your 11 month old child if she can say ‘balls’.
