How to Speak Aidan

Aidan is killing me today with his mispronounciations.
I simply must share...
Conversation 1
  • Aidan - "Mama, could you get me some batteries?"
  • Me - "What kind do you need, double A?"
  • Aidan - "Yeah, I need double 8."

Conversation 2

  • Me - "Aidan, hand me that bag of mangos."
  • Aidan - "Here ya go, Mama, here's your bingos."

Conversation 3

  • Aidan - "What are you makin', Mama?"
  • Me - "Deviled eggs."
  • Aidan - "Oh, double eggs? Okay, that sounds great, I love double eggs!"

The word delicious is the latest ongoing mispronounciation we've been working on. Aidan insists on saying "balicious". A typical conversation we have 20 times a day goes like this.

  • Aidan - "This is so balicious!"
  • Me - "No, son, it's dee-licious, not balicious."
  • Aidan - "Oh, balicious?"
  • Me - "No, say dee.
  • Aidan - "dee."
  • Me - "Say lishus."
  • Aidan - "lishus."
  • Me - "Now say delicious"
  • Aidan - "balicious"

That's when I just give up wait around until we go through it again in 30 minutes.
