Trixie's language


Trixie adds extra syllables to words.

Clow-us is close
Ow-ut is out
Hur-ut is hurt
Cay-at is cat.
Hel-up is help.

She needs a doctor's kit for her birthday I think, too. Unrelated to the above.

She's totally not obedient. I know some of it is her age and some of it is just her. And she does not do well with reproof or correction. I'm trying to keep her right next to me for much of the day so i can encourage the formation of new habits that don't involve squishing the cat or socking her siblings. Or taunting them until they sock her. Today was the first day of the new routine and she doesn't exactly like it. She was fine until she realized she HAD to stay with me. Then the screaming began.
