Chip turned 5 a couple weeks ago. And so I decided it was time to start mentioning to him that he might not be pronouncing some words correctly.
Chip: I’m going to take that whiff me.
Mom: Chip, listen to mommy say the word “with” – wi-TH… wi-TH. Can you hear the difference? You are using an “f” sound. Mommy uses a “th” sound.
Mom: Try it! “wi-TH”
Chip: Wi-th… Mom, I don’t care. Whiff. I say whiff. Agrhhhhhh! I like WHIFFFFFFFF.
Yeah, so I gave up. I guess he just isn’t ready yet.
