- Do all families have fun mispronunciations? I think the hardest I ever saw my mother laugh was when my then five-year-old niece was visiting my parents (and I was there, too, that weekend.) My mom had used the word "exasperated" to Amanda the day before and had to explain what it meant. So at the breakfast table on Sunday morning, Amanda walked in and said, "Nana! I am zaperated with Granddaddy!" And so, of course, I say "zaperated" to this day. :) The adult Amanda just gives a long-suffering shake of her head.
Thanks to everyone for sticking with me during the challenge. I'll be back to my regular MWF schedule now. See you Wednesday!
