 Unfathomable Adults or the need for speech therapy?

The sun was shining down on me as I watched a group of children eat at picnic tables at a church luncheon.  I was drowsy and full of cheese cake and not really paying attention when my 4 year old ran up and told me, "Don't worry mom, I'm on the other side of the shed playing with Cal." Except my 4 year old can't pronounce 'l' it always sounds like a 'w'.

Ooops, I hadn't noticed my son or the pack of youngsters I was supposedly watching had disappeared; I had to pretend to be relieved.

"But mom, don't worry he's not really."

"He's not really on the other side of the shed?" I asked starting to worry.

"No, he's just a boy,"  my son exclaimed rather impatiently.


My implied question slowed him down again.  Mother's can be sooo inconvenient.  He sighed, "I mean he's not really a cow.  His parents just call him that..... I don't know why."

hee hee. My son Cade has been called Cake...which is funny because my daughter Clementine has been called Lemon Pie.

None of my kids could pronounce an L - it was always a W. Lots of fun for me!
