So if you think of almost any child that is learning how to talk, things just don't come out quite right all of the time. They might turn a few normal words into...lets just say...words you aren't supposed to say. Not that they are meaning what they are saying, that is just how it happens to come out of their mouth. Some words come out in the cutest ways and then others make you cringe every time that they say it.
Let's set up the situation...
Say there is a Mom walking through the store with her 18 month old son. This little boy is learning how to talk and has a new obsession with a stuffed sheep beany baby. So this said stuffed sheep goes everywhere with the little boy.....if he is upset all you have to do is get the sheep out and all of a sudden he is happy, laughing and.....talking. So this very sleepy little boy is sitting in the cart and getting a little cranky, so Mama gets out the sheep and wala he is happy and talking again. There is one problem, every time they walk past another person the little boy says "sheep" and wants to show them his sheep. There is nothing wrong with saying "sheep" but just imagine a the word.....take the P off of the end and add a T.....yea so that turns into a VERY different word.
Yes, and of course, that little boy in the story is my little Monkey. I say "yes, that is a sheeP" a lot!! Just so everyone else doesn't think that my son is saying the OTHER word!
