Another Devyn Post

In honor of Devyn's birthday, I thought I'd tell you one of my favorite Devyn stories.

For those of you who know Devyn, you know he talks with a LISP.
My brother and I used to have a lisp when we were children but we took a few lessons in our younger years and it was least, mine was.......


I was still attending college at the time and I had summer SPEECH classes. Devyn and Miah were curious about what my class was about. I tried to explain it to them as best as I could and it must have come off sounding like you needed help speaking.

This was also the time I was into making homemade sushi for the family and myself. The kids love it. They were always asking me to make it for them.
Well, one day, Miah came to me asking me if I was going to make some....SHUSHI.

I tried to correct her and tell her that it's pronounced...SU-shi. She tried and tried a few times but it still came out SHU-shi.

That's when Devyn came around the corner laughing at her and telling her, "THUTHI Miah?!
It'th not called thuthi! ....IT'S STHUUUSTHIIII! You can't even thay it right! You need Thpeech!"

We all busted out laughing at how Devyn was the one to dictate who needed speech.

haha my little ones say things in funny ways all the time. I dont think its that big of a deal. My 13 year old cannt say 'Grand Theft Auto' everytime he says it, it comes out like "grand-deft-daddo"

You had to be there so see it LIVE. Hilarious.

Sassy Mama:
Oh he knows. I keep trying to work with him on it but he distracts me with a kiss and the promise of future swaddling.

I think it's funny when you can find all the words they have trouble saying and make them into a sentence.

His lisp is still there. I'm not sure if it will get better but I will be working on him this summer cause he can't be talking like no Mike Tyson when he's a professional athlete!!
