Can you believe I actually think about these things in depth?

My daughter is almost 20 months. But that sounds so dumb. Do people really say that? Tweeeenty months?

As parents are, I'm often asked how old she is now by people who don't even really care that much. 20 months sounds so awkward. It sounds like peanut butter in the mouth. Pwenty Munffs.

She's no longer quite "a year an a half" which I've been getting away with saying for the last two months.

She's not close enough to two to say "almost two" because that's still four months off.

She's technically "one" but at that age, it implies she just turned one.

One year and eight months? Is that even more of a mouthful?


1. So what is the least awkward way to answer 20 months? Should I just stick with 20 months? And then 21? 22? 23? Until I can finally just use "two" for a lot of months? =\

2. Does 20 months sound as awkward to you as it does to me or am I just on crack?
