The Unfortunate Word

Language is a tough thing.

Every day I'm amazed at how much Lila understands.  The complex directions I can give her and she can carry out.   Each day her words become a little more clear.  The sentances make a little more sense.  The process is all around a little bit better. 
However, getting the words BACK OUT is a bit more difficult.

Some letters are tougher than others.  She has trouble with her "F's"
"Fish" comes out "Bish"  "Feet" comes out "Peet", etc.

Some words are a little backwards.
"Garbage" comes out "Bargage" and "Cup" comes out "Puc".

Then there are the words that sound the same.
Sock, Nuk, Truck
Well, these don't exactly sound the same, but when Lila says them they do.
This is because they all come out sounding like a slang term for the male genitalia.
Say "Sock" and replace the "S" with a "C".


We have a lot of **** in our house right now.
What will people think we are teaching our daughter.
Lord, help me!
