While Flora misuses words, Kate is still at the stage where she is primarily mispronouncing them.
For example, Flora brought me a picture she had drawn of a big, fat cat.
“This cat has a lot of kitties in her belly,” she declared. “She’s permanent.”
“You mean pregnant,” I said.
“What does pregnant mean?”
“It means you have a lot of kitties in your belly.”
Kate says: to-moll-oh. It’s adorable. She knows what it means (the day after today). She just can’t say it yet.
