Five reasons I suspect that Jake might be half-Australian (‘Strine’)

  • While raking leaves in the yard: “Gimme duh ryke.”
  • When I ask him who made the craft he brought home from school: “I myke it myseff.”
  • Inquiring about Nick’s upcoming birthday party: “When is Nuck-uh-luss’s pah-tee?"
  • About his now-tattered Super Why! paper plate: "I tyke it tee school!"
  • And when he was sweating from being wrapped up in his blanket all night: “I hawt. Tuhn on duh eck nish-nuh.”
I keep expecting him to break out his best “Crikey!” at any moment.

You should probably encourage him to say crickey... and video tape it!

Lacy, Ding ding ding! I hoped people would be able to decipher my "Jakey-speak." ;)
