Daddy Joseph

Overheard during story time:

E-Bear (singing): "Mommy Maaary, Baby Jeeeeeesus, Daddy JOPHUS!"

T:  "Say, you two, let's practice something.  Are you ready to practice?"

G-Bear and E-Bear:  "Yeah!"

T: "Ok, repeat after me.   Jo-seph."

G-Bear:  "JO-phus!"

E-Bear:  "Jo-PHUS!"

T:  "Not quite, let's try that again.  Jo-SEFFF."

E-Bear:  "JO-PHUSSSS!"

G-Bear:  "JOPHUS!"

(ten minutes later)

T:  "No, no!  Jos-effff!"

It never ceases to amaze me how mispronunciations stick among my children--the oldest starts it, and they all learn and we can't seem to change the habit. My 2.5, 4 and 5.5 year old all say "coRRECter" instead of "character", and "hootel" instead of "hotel", and there are quite a few more, even though otherwise they speak very clearly. Jophus is hilarious.
