It’s Not All Mary Poppins

Missing Link

Malli is a chatterer. Her day is narrated in a quiet, cheerful voice. Her sentences are clear, most of them are grammatically sound, and her vocabulary is rich for a child her age. I’d say that about 80 – 90% of Malli’s utterances are clear, effective communication.

But sometimes…

“Brx7gdhr%s outside!! We have a brx7gdhr%s outside. And it raining, and it dark, and it go all brx7dhr%s outside. And Mark and Daddy and Mummy take the brx7gdhr%s outside, outside in the dark and the rain!”

…sometimes that missing 10% is critical…
