When our children are small and everything is new, even their vocabulary is all new. Some words come easy, while others are much more difficult.
When I was around seven or eight my gardening neighbour tried to teach me the names of all of her flowers. I was quick to learn, but there was one that I could not pronounce…nemesium….
I do remember that she would be out in the garden transplanting ones from the nursery…always on a rainy day…then she would go in and have a mustard bath and never seemed to catch a cold from doing it.
I wonder how I can change subjects so quickly?
So back to what I started out to write!
One of my sons had a couple of words that he couldn’t say at first…Pyterpater and Skeeverskyver.
Did you have one of those? Or maybe both?
I remember paying fifty dollars for a ‘peviously owned’
Pyterpater, and was really happy to have it.
I was sorry when my husband taught him how to say the words properly!
