Miss Pronounciation

I will admit it: I mispronounce words all the time. I say that it's because I am a great speller, and therefore pronounce things the way they are spelled, but this, unfortunately, does not stop Chip from making fun of me. Especially when I routinely call U2's Bono "Boe-no" and refuse to say the name of Chip's parents' friends the Putzes, preferring instead to call them "Your parents' friends and neighbors, Bob and Cathy, from Royal Village."

Thankfully, Mary Clare has taken to teaching us how to pronounce our words.

 

I don't know what we would do without her. Probably go around asking for pancakes and sausage instead of pancakes and sausish. Now that would just be downright embarrassing.

*You'll note that Charlie is snoozing away during this tutorial. We shot this video the same night as the one of him sleeping during dinner. Someone—and I'm not naming any names here—had a bad case of the green eyed monster that night. 

**You also undoubtedly noticed the bruise on Mary Clare's forehead. She had a run-in with a cabinet corner at my parents' house that resulted in a three-dimensional bump enhanced by a glorious array greens and purples.
