"Shape" with an Emphasis on the "P"

Christian has really excelled lately at reading / pronouncing / imitating new words. It's really very entertaining!

The other day, he picked up the case for an Elmo DVD called, "Guess That Shape and Color" and he started saying "sh*t ... sh*t."

I was dumbfounded.

It soon occurred to me that he was trying to say "shape," but can't seem to tell the difference between a "P" sound and a "t" sound at the end. I very quickly started over-emphasizing the "P" sound ... but he continues to hear a "t."

It's funny ... but it's not, you know? The last thing I want is to have our two year old walking around and randomly saying "sh*t."

Ah parenthood ... never a dull moment.
