Southern Accent Travesty

Zoe’s best friend Jaylee is really named Jaylen!  I mean the girl who is at my house 4 or more nights a week, who eats dinner with us most evenings, who trades clothes with my daughter, and comes over right at 4pm when her bus drops her off!!!  I’ve had her name wrong.  How horrible I feel calling her the wrong name for a year….it sounds like Jaylee when she says it.  Must’ve sounded OK to her and her sisters when I said it, too, because no one ever corrected me. I had her spell her name today to make sure it ended in EE instead of IE and here she says, “NO EEE EEEN” and then writes EN.  What?  uggh.  poor kiddo.  poor JAAY LEEEEn.
