Harry is busy with the blocks, creating a long “train with steps on it”. As he works, he sings:
“Ah. Way. Mih-muh may-r r,
No. Cri fu a beh
The lih, lur Jee-uh
Lay dow ih ee ed.”
You don't have the advantage I did, of a reasonable facsimile of the tune. Harry is remembering happy, cooler days, and is treating us to Away In A Manger.
A day or two I complained about his diction (or lack thereof). Today I'm seeing it as sweet, quirky, and, most importantly, A Project. I love a good roll-up-my-sleeves-and-get-into-it kid challenge! This one cries out to be tackled. Speech is clearly important to the boy, since he indulges ceaselessly. Why not make it easier for people to understand him? There are a few problem areas with his speech, but the most consistent is that he doesn't put the final consonant onto his words. Right then. We'll start with that.
Oooh. A Project. I am a happy woman.
