Why, oh why?

Why is it that my child can say yes, with a y, but yellow comes out lellow?

We were hysterical last night:

Say yellow.


No, yellow.


What color is your shirt?

So many kids say "lellow"! I'm not sure why.

I babysat a little girl a few times who talked about "lellow bowds" (yellow birds). It was so cute -- I made her say it over and over. Was that mean of me?

Oh, I remember how convinced - how deeply, fully convinced - I was that "lellow" was the correct pronunciation. "Yellow" just didn't sound right.
