My Country Girl

So, I’ve noticed over the last few days that my daughter has a VERY southern drawl… I’m not sure exactly where she has picked this up. I know my speech has become a little more southernized through the years, but I don’t think it’s as bad as what I’m hearing from her! Frankie is particularly southern on a few words… like “wrassling” instead of “wrestling.” But he doesn’t really draw out his words that I’ve noticed. Alyx makes a one syllable word into four… like “I want choc-lat miiiiiiiiilk.” It’s not miiiiiiiilk… it’s milk, Alyx! She just looks at me when I try to correct her, as if saying, ummm, that’s what I said… ****sigh**** I guess it’s not a big deal, but it is a little entertaining. Now, if she starts saying things like “Bilos” and “Walmarts…” I’ll know she needs to stay away from her Nana!! Oh well, I guess, we are going to have a little country girl living in the house.

    Sophie and I got into a huge fight when she said “Leave me along!” and I tried to tell her it should be “alone”. It irritates me every time she says that but I’m hoping eventually, she’ll get it right. Ugh.

    You know, Alyx still refuses to say simply “orange” for the color… it’s “orange juice” and no amount of arguing will convince her otherwise!
