Let's play a game--Guess That Word!

post #1 of 250
Thread Starter 
thought this might be fun

DS2 (14 months) has a new word from the past couple days.

It's "Me-mo" (me like well 'me' and 'mo' like from the 3 stooges lol)

He is *not* attempting to say "Nemo"

Can anyone guess what it is? then, the one who gets it right should post a word from their kid's past or present.

More?

does he ever see sesame street? could it be "elmo?"

i ask because i just discovered today that my ds, who has only seen bits of sesame street a few times, knows "elmo." he said "elmo" today when he saw a picture of elmo in an advertisement. i was a bit horrified. my parents have a little elmo puppet at their house, so maybe that's where he picked it up...

me more? as in "ME WANT MORE!"

Erm. Bebo? See-saw? Elmo? Generic word for breastfeeding?

Well, around here we have "mo-me", so perhaps it is the same thing. Mo-me means "moving".

DS pronounces Elmo "Mel-mo".

I'll guess later.

What is he doing when he says it? My guess would be "me more", but without context, that is difficult to say...

It is....Elmo I showed him about tickling the Tickle Me Elmo. I was going to post a hint if somebody in the first 3 guesses didn't get it. my other kids said "eh-mo' so "me-mo" was a new one for me lol

Anyone else got one?

Ok, I'll bite. I'll even give two. If no one can guess them I'll put them in context later.

Ha-Poom

Hody-Ody

zhute

Ha-Poom -- Someone already guessed 'vaccuum' so I'll guess 'bathroom'.

Hody-Ody -- LOL that just sounds so cute... Roly Poly Olie?

fee-zer -- freezer?

zhute -- juice?

When DD said "me-mo" it meant "remote", so that was going to be my guess. I would never have thought "Elmo" heh.

Here's one DS said when he was little (he's 11 now):

aw-mo-mo

And one DD, age 3, says now:

ass-i-lin

Me-mo here was DDs first attempt at G'ma.

ass-i-lin... vaseline?

DD (5) says me-mo sounds like asking for breastmilk. She also says fee-zer might mean feet; and zhute means soup.

DS is 2. For quite a while, he's been saying "Dain-doo!" while doing a funny dance. Usually on top of something he shouldn't be on, like the stool I just retrieved him from.

for the longest time dd kept talking about the "dis-diss" and then i finally fingured out she was saying "dentist"

ok, here's one from my childhood. this one had my parents baffled for months.

Gabebo. (gah-BAY-bo)

its an adjective, not a noun (which is more of a clue than my parents had!)

[QUOTE=Dov'sMom;14979451]fee-zer

zhute[/QUOTE"]

"Feezer" is actually "refrigerator" -- originally "feezer-fate-or" and then shortened to "feezer." Even with the clue from the longer word the week before, it took me days to figure it out.

"zhute" took us weeks, because DS would shout it out at completely random moments, usually in the middle of imaginative play. Turns out "zhute" means "shoot," as in guns. Maybe it owuld have been easier to figure out if DS had watched more TV or seen more violent books, but since the only time he'd ever heard the word was from Babar the elephant, when the hunters shot Babar's mother, he didn't really do any of the things you normally associate with a kid playing guns.

Dain-doo sounds like thank you to me, but the context doesn't make that much sense.

Dain-doo = danger?
