I’ve been working on teaching Pierce proper pronoun usage. Early on, a conversation went like this:
“Me want a snack.”
“No, I want a snack.”
“Me want a snack too! We match!”
Now that it’s been a few weeks, he’s understanding… in as far as what I want from him when I correct his sentences. But then he came out with “Liberty help me! No! Liberty help I!” Just when I thought we were making progress.
Pierce pronounces ‘Liberty’ as ‘Bibaberty’. I tried to get him to say it right yesterday. Apparently he’d had enough of my corrections. After the third try, he hollered “Buddy!” instead. Fair enough.
