Why? Because I sometimes like my children's speech to rub off on me and not the other way around. Take my two-year-old daughter for example. For some reason she can't pronounce the pairing "OL." Instead it comes out more like the pairing "ER." This leads to some adorable mispronunciations.
|Who wouldn't want to "herd" this little girl,|
especially when she asks so sweetly?
It's even endearing enough to get me to lug bulky inanimate objects around for her.
