Ruthie loves to carry on long conversations with everyone in the house, even while she's still mastering adult English. Meanwhile, she is teaching all of us Ruthiespeak. One of our favorites is her name for Grandma DeWilde. Mema just doesn't fit in her vocabulary yet, so she has proclaimed Kitty to be the Muk as in: "Where da Muk?" or "Muk, c'mon!"
How long this will last is anyone's guess, but we're all enjoying it and having a good laugh over how much control a little girl can have over our lives!
