A Quick Conversation

Staley has always been very verbal and a great communicator.  However, she still has some toddler pronunciation errors that interfere with understanding everything she says.  Her 'l's are 'y's, her 'r's are 'w's.  If you were to ask her, Staley would tell you that she 'yikes her wain boots.'  Last night, Staley wanted to give Zach 'five'.  Zach held out his hand and Staley gave him five.  Then she hit his hand 3 more times fast.  They then had this conversation:

Staley:  "Those last 3 were quick fives."
Zach:  "Quick fives?"
Staley:  "No.  Quick fives.  You know, like when you have a strap and it quicks."

So apparently her 'l's are 'y's, her 'r's are 'w's, and her 'cl's are 'qu's.  Sometimes it's hard to understand her with some of these little nuances, but once you figure it out, it all quicks.
