Much Ado About Sumpin
He will never admit it. I know that he has learned the word is something and not sumpin. I have already written about his speech evaluation here. I wonder if those mean speech ladies would still think his crazy speech patterns are developmental for his age? I won't endure the torture to find out. Only time will tell if he will stop saying "sumpin". He just won't accept that the number after two is not cree. And the fruit we had at lunch is a blueblerry to him. I'm always amazed at the extra consonants he can put in words. How did he fit a 'g' in that word? I find myself trying to imitate him and I can't do it. I don't care if he calls it a "blathroom" as long as he uses it.
I will never forget the day my father told me that I had a thumb and not a fumb. I didn't want to believe it. It seems like yesterday that I was staring at my thumb and wondering why he would say such a thing. I will be thankful that my Little Guy actually does say "thumb".
9/1/08 Update: He ran in the house and whispered in my ear "Three". "What" I said. "Three" he repeated over and over. Yeah!!!! He has learned and decided to say three instead of cree! Okay, 2 words fixed...1,300 more to go.
