At least it's not on purpose. LOL! Must think of a word that is very similar so you can repeat loudly next time she does it. Oh yes, Froggit or whatever word you come up with, is sweet, honey. Teehee

Yeah -- I think Faggot is going to have to be a HOUSE FRIEND until we can get her weaned off his new moniker. I wanted to push for a permanent name change to TIGER so I worked on it all night. Went like this:

Me: Maisy! Can you say TIGER?
Maisy: Yes!
*crickets*
Me: Say TIGER Maisy!
Maisy: No fanks you.
Me: Please! Say TIGER....Maisy? Maisy Jane? Maisy? Look at Mommy! Maisy? Looka! Looka Mommy! Can you say TIGER???
Maisy: Yes.
Me: Maisy, please say Tiger.
*crickets*
Five minutes later she comes up to me with Faggot, lofts him to the sky as if he was baby Kunta Kinte and she was asking him to behold the only thing greater than himself, and says, "Mommy! Dis Dyker. Rar Rar!"

Hey. At least the kid has defamation symmetry.

Shoulda named him Roy.

Oh, Dear Lord, please don't change his name! I am probably too late. But, I nearly split my sides laughing so hard as I read this! There are tears rolling down my cheeks and my abs hurt! There are a lot of really great things about little people this age. One is the inevitable hilarity as they learn to master their mother tongue. Maisy just made my whole rainy Monday! Thank you, Maisy Jane! Don't ever change!
