The cat barked!

Nikita's vacation cat-sitter calls her "ol' scarf n' barf" after an unsavory trait she's had since kittenhood. A few times a week, when Eliza and I came downstairs in the morning, the first thing out of her mouth was,

"Oh, no! The cat barked! There's a big mess!!!"


But a few weeks ago, Eliza started started pronouncing it "barf" instead of "bark." It's just not the same. :)

Aren't kids funny? CJ gets excited when one of ours does the same thing, running through the house proclaiming the presence of "cat puke". She still uses the "w" sound in place of "l" sounds, and I know I'm going to miss that when it's gone!

Same here! Eliza pronounces her friend's name "Wowow" instead of "Laurel." Her own name is pronounced "Zaza" or "uh-Zaza."
