Toddler Talk

Saturday night at dinner with all the family here, Pops and Claire began talking about words that little kids mispronounce. Pops remembered, "Well, Gray used to call them 'forses' when she was just learning to talk. Like, 'look at that forse inside the fence.'"

He gave another example, describing the horses that their neighbors have. I could see that Claire was listening and thinking hard about what Pops had said. Then she asked, "Did she used to say 'foam'...you know, when she meant 'home'?"

And for the record, no I did not.
