She also says, "ambliance" for ambulance and calls Palm trees "Pom pom " trees.
So tell me some of your DC's language errors that are so much fun to hear.
I was so happy to read this, because my 4.5 year old does the same thing! I thought she was the only one!
I thought it was cute too, but my dh has started correcting her now.
We had a talk about it and I realized that dh and I tend to say "You aren't" instead of "You're not." The correlary of "aren't" is, of course, "amen't." It's lead me to wonder of "aren't" is incorrect. I want to blame dh because he's from the midwest, but I wonder if I say it too.
Have you noticed that you use aren't? Do you think there's a correlation?
