when caroline was 2 she could not say popsicle…..she wanted a “mockel”
during the winter we have “hanitizer” hand+sanitizer= hanitizer makes sense right? and “snishews” to wipe their little noses.
last year when we went to the local ski sale we set out to get poles for the kids…..except we call them “sticks” after we purchased them Cooper said, “yeah, we have sticks!!” so exciting! But the “know it all” lady said to the my kids, “tell your mommy we call them poles.” To which i replied, “get your sticks kids!!!”
and because Cooper can’t pronounce a j sound lots of words make me smile like “gump” jump and “guice” juice.
most parents might worry and think about speech and language therapy.
i just smile and hold on to our “family words”
