THIS. THIS MADE ME SO ANGRY BECAUSE SHE’S BLAMING HIM AGAIN. SHE IS BLAMING A POOR KID THAT TRIED TO MAKE EVERYTHING BETTER FOR HIS GOD DAMN FAMILY AND ALL HE GETS IS THIS RESPONSE. LIKE DO YOU THINK ABOUT WHAT AGE HE WAS WHEN SHIT STARTED? WHEN EURUS KILLED REDBEARD AND HE HAD TO COMFORT AND CHANGE HIS BROTHER’S MEMORY. CAN YOU IMAGINE HOW GUILTY HE FELT? DO YOU THINK ABOUT HOW STRESSED THIS MAN IS ABOUT EVERYTHING AND THE FACT THAT HE IS RAISING YOUR GOD DAMN CHILDREN AND MAKES SURE THAT EURUS GETS WHAT SHE WANTS?
WHERE WERE YOU WHEN SHERLOCK WAS USING DRUGS? WHY AREN’T YOU MAKING A LIST? WHERE WERE YOU WHEN HE SEARCHED FOR HIS LITTLE BROTHER?
DO YOU THINK ABOUT THE FACT THAT HE IS ALWAYS WEARING THAT GUN-SWORD-UMBRELLA BECAUSE HE IS ALWAYS IN A DEFENSIVE MOOD BECAUSE WHEN HE TOOK THE JOB HE KNEW THE RISKS IT INVOLVED?
SO NO LADY, HE SOULDN’T HAVE DONE BETTER.
YOU SHOULD’VE RAISED YOUR CHILDREN.
YOU SHOULD’VE DONE BETTER. YOU SHOULD’VE THINK ABOUT THE BROTHER THAT RAISED YOUR OTHER CHILDREN WHEN YOU WEREN’T THERE.

I love this because you can read his lips and look at his hand gestures and just know he’s saying “Oh look it’s daddy, hiiiiii!!” and who the fuck says that to anyone without using a patronising baby voice?!

So really; Sherlock is using a baby voice to try and teach Rosie works and hand signals so she responds well to him and isn’t that just some fine character dovelopment RIGHT there
