Something happened this week. Something big. Well, at least in our little world. Mags began saying her R's correctly. With Chris being a trained speech pathologist, I knew the time was coming when there would be no more "Tuckah" or "my tuwn". Mags was really starting to sound like <sniff> a big kid.
The way she exaggerated the pronunciation was hilarious. Hearing it over and over was making it even more real. Then, just as I was about to lose it over her new found sound and melt like a puddle on the floor, I heard her sweet, little voice from the back seat call out,
"Mama, can you tuRn 'Wittle Wed Wagon' on the radio, please?"
She still hasn't mastered her R sound in the initial (beginning) position of the woRd. Her hand dimples may be fading and her cheeks may be thinning, but to me, she'll always be my baby.
As we ran our errands, that song blared on the radio. It's one of our favorites from the popular kid's band, the Imagination Movers. You can watch the video below from their Rock-O-Matic DVD.
And even though the guys sing it as "Little Red Wagon",
our family will forever sing it as "Wittle Wed Wagon".
