You Call Our State ‘Illinois’, Your Kids Call it Something Totally Ridiculous
Parents, you may be totally out of the loop when it comes to kids language skills, or at least when it comes to proper way to say "Illinois."
I can pretty much guarantee you no teacher in his or her right mind would teach a child to pronounce our state this way.

Ridiculous! Those are both odd nicknames for the land of unending taxation, we call home.
I have to admit that I have not heard this first hand, but these nicknames have been showing up in my social feed.
Who else has heard their child refer to Illinois as 'illy-nilly', or 'nilly-boi'?
