Mind Your Language
I repeated...several times..'' Not Innit''' she said gently
A few weeks later as we were out in a park she approached me wide-eyed, motioning to another child '' She just said Innit like you ''
A few weeks ago there was much laughter from George and Molly when I happened to say ''poor''....yes, you've guessed it I pronounced it '' poo-er'' ! Cue another pronunciation lesson !
Though not before I was asked to say it several times resulting in gales of laughter !
I am always amazed that the Brummie accent causes mixed reactions - its like Marmite...you either love it or loathe it- I am not given that choice - I am who I am ....besides I'm not listening to my accent when I speak - I'm behind it really , and I'm over it ....as you should be.
However I will carry on mispronouncing words because ....well, its who I am - and it makes these two beautiful children laugh xxxxx
