Mom: "Katie, say sss--sss---spaghetti"
This must have been one of the more lasting mispronunciations because I vividly remember standing in the kitchen with my mom, trying to get that "spa" to come out right. Flash forward -- a lotta years -- and my kiddo is ready to try her first basghetti!
It felt like a rite of passage. I made spaghetti with meat sauce for dinner and forgot to portion out some ground beef for Lucy to eat separately. Isaac suggested we just go for it and give her some spaghetti. This requires pictures!
She loved it! She ate every bite of her portion, then it was straight into the bath with the girl! She had sauce in her ears, up her nose, and all over her face and neck.
