Claire - yes. Great story! In fact I just lent my copy to a co-worker.

Alix - your post about what your kids mispronounced touched me. In my family we have many such "words": being-have (long "a"; behaving), pree-ing tend (pretending), willy pussies (pussywillows), pootfrints (footprints), lost her/his mind of it (forgot), and of course bisketti (spaghetti). All charming, IMHO.

My 4 year old son still calls breakfast "breadstick". We think it is too cute to try to correct him. He will have issues when he is older, but right now it amuses us

amuses me as well! He'll outgrow it by the time he has his driver's license.

My sister has talked about how bittersweet it is every time her oldest daughter learns to pronounce something correctly. On the one hand, she's excited about her progress. On the other, she misses the endearing pronunciations from while she was still learning the word. My personal two favorites are when she called strawberries bawberries, and grampunk for grandpa.
