Rilla: What day of the week is it that starts with a T and an H?

Me (pointing at the calendar): Thursday.

Rilla (skeptical): Really?

Me: Yup! When you see a T and an H together, they make this sound: thhh. Like in Thhhhursday.

Rilla (tries it) thhh thhh thhh

Me: That’s it!

Rilla: OK. Can you help me find my socks that say Fursday?

  1. That reminds me of when my son – when he was about Rilla’s age – pointed to the calendar and said “Fursday doesn’t start with a T.”

  2. Have any of your kids ever substituted /f/ for /tr/?

    Just wondering . . .

  3. @Anne Marie, no—LOL, I bet that can get embarrassing when they’re shouting about a truck going by! One of yours, I take it?

  4. My little brother is graduating high school this year, but I remember when he couldn’t stop mixing tr’s or r’s. I’m sure it was only a month or two ago… or something.

    Sheesh. One of us is old.
