Kid Speak

Last night, Jack was on the phone with a friend from school.  His friend called (actually 2 called..sheesh) to get the spelling words.  Michael and I were talking in the kitchen when we heard Jack telling the list to his friend, Tommy. 

I don’t remember all the words, but one.  Did your kids say words in a funny way?  For years, my boys (and now Katie Mei) have said aminal instead of animal.  They don’t do it at school, but at home it is still aminal.  Jack for as long as I can remember, has said fierce as "ahfeerus".  So this is the one sided conversation we heard:



"f-i-e-r-c-e, ahfeerus"

"huh?" pause

"oh, fierce..yeah, thats it".

Michael and I were busting up.  I just love that.  And, when his other friend Chaz called about 10 minutes later…."ahferrus" became fierce pretty quickly.  Aw.  They grow up way too fast.
