Out of the mouths of babes…

When I was a bit younger, a young lady of my acquaintance (about 2 years old) was absolutely obsessed with fire engines. They were an unending source of delight for her. One time, she heard the sirens and tore through the house, running for the front windows. She leaped up on the couch, peeked over the back out the window, and pointed and shouted delightedly “Fire trucks! Fire trucks!”

But being somewhat new to speech, she kind of switched the first sounds of the two words.

That story came to mind when I read this story, and I think this girl’s parents have a bit more of a challenge than the parents of the young lady I knew…
