Walking the kids up to school today I overhear the little girl in front of me say "Mummy, do you hear Jordan, she doesn't sound like an American anymore." And it is true. My daughter rarely sounds like an American. The mom asked me if it bothered me at all and I told her it only does every now and then. We went through the entire Easter holiday reinforcing that YES there is an R at the end of that word.
Jordan, "When is the Easta bunny coming?"
Mom, "When is WHO coming?"
Jordan, "The EASTER bunny."
She has also taken to adding R's places they don't belong. I will never understand this accent. Ends with A add an r. Ends with R-take it off. We were in the car the other day and Jared was reading. Having a bit of trouble with a word until he realized it was cinema. Jordan loudly pipes up, "No Jared, it's CINEMER!"
