- She shared a video of herself trying to get the adorable baby to say "mama" but failed miserably
Every mom waits for her baby's first word and hopes for it to be "mama". However, some mothers are left disappointed when their little bundles of joy decide to say "dada" instead.
On Thursday, businesswoman Lerato Mannya revealed her baby, Melo, decided to say dad and she explained how it made her feel.
"Melo chose yesterday to say “Dada”. This child of mine doesn’t rate me at all."
Her post sparked a hilarious reaction from another mom, Neo De Jenero, who shared a video of herself trying to get her baby to say 'mama'.
"Team Dada, same WhatsApp group with Malik."
In the clip, Neo can be heard asking her boy to say "mama" but he replies with "dada" each time. At the end, she gets tired of asking and hilariously responds with: "Hai suka".
Take a look at the video below:
South Africans found the clip funny but felt sorry for the mom. Taking to the comment section, tweeps shared their views.
