On the drive home from work and the child care center the other day, Michael and Sophie were telling me about their days. At one point Michael said, "something-something-something-great-big-shits!"
"Um, what, buddy?"
And he said it again.
"Did you play with a great big ship?" I was hopeful, but knowing what he's been producing in the potty lately, I couldn't be sure.
"No, mama, something-something-something-great-big-shits!"
Saturday morning we worked this out.
Within seconds of watching the video himself, Michael's pronunciation changed appropriately. It must be a great tool for speech therapists.
(And, yes, the paper tree and Christmas window decals that the kids and I put up are still in the playroom. Add those to this weekend's to-do list...)
