When Jennifer was just a little thing, maybe 2 years old or so, she had a problem pronouncing her B's. Specifically, she had a problem saying the word "barking".
At the time, Daisy was just a puppy and did a lot more barking than she does now. Jennifer took it upon herself to try and correct Daisy everytime she heard her barking, and liked to come tell us when the barking was occurring.
Only......it didn't sound like she was saying barking.
She pronounced it farking.
Only it didn't sound like she was saying farking, either.
It sounded more like...........well............dare I type it...........F*CKING.
The first time she ran over to us exclaiming that "Daisy is outside F*CKING", we nearly lots our marbles. As good parents, we tried over and over to get her to pronounce her "B".....
Me: "Jennifer.....say B."
Me: "Say b, b, b, BARKING."
Jen: "b, b, b, FARKING."
Me: (laughing on the inside while trying to hold my composure outside)
Anyways, this went on for weeks and the longer it went on, the funnier it became.
After awhile, we decided to make the best of it and get Jennifer to say FARKING as often as possible.
When friends and family would come over, we would proudly say..."Hey, watch this"........ then we would ask Jen what Daisy was doing outside and she would say "Daisy is farking". Hysterics ensued and 5 minutes later we would have her say it again. And again.
Listen, I'm not proud of the fact that we skirted our parental responsibility in order to have a good laugh every now and then....but I am telling you that this was HILARIOUS!
Here are some pictures of Jen right around that age.........can't you just imagine her yelling at the top of her lungs: STOP FARKING DAISY!!!!!!!!!!
