Tot Talk Tuesday

One of my favorite personal tot talk Tuesday stories comes from when I was living in Arlington, Virginia in 1999. I was watching a five-year-old boy named Noah who had a hard time saying the r and l sounds. When he said these sounds they came out sounding like the 'w'.
One of the times I was watching him at his house, we were playing with his favorite toys...those little green army men. He had them set up with cannons and Lincoln Logs for a huge battle.
All at once everyone started shooting, and Noah knocked all of the soldiers over. They had all died. "Man," he said, "That was a really worse war."
Which of course came out sounding like: That was a wewwy woss waw.
It was so cute
