Oh, the Things You Learn...

...about the way your child thinks when he enters the phase that has him spelling everything rather than speaking it.

Alex: Please, may I have a j-r-i-n-k?

This one took me a minute.

Me: Alex, it's a ddddrrink, not a jjjjjrrink.

That is so funny - and adorable! My dad used to discourage us from correcting our younger siblings way of talking because he didn't want them to grow out of it too quickly. :)

It's not just little ones....today my 11 year old was telling me about the bent "vender" on her bicycle...I gently reminded her it's a "fender" with extra "f" pronunciation...;)
