Lovable language mistakes... - Page 2

post #21 of 238
Oh! I forgot the one we've reintroduced to the fam...

DSD2 used to say, "I'm hockey daddy, I'm hockey!" instead of "hungry" and we've reintroduced this to use in reference to DD (3 months). Now DSD2 sees me getting ready to feed DD and says, "hockey baby?" "Yep, baby's hockey." My MIL thinks we're nuts for making DSD2 "regress in her language abilities." Eh, whatever. It's friggin adorable!

Around my house, we get the "sippy cups" (hiccups).

I'll post more when I remember them.

we use "nakpins" at the table to wipe our hands
and we used to go to the "li bi dee" (library) to get books
We sometimes used to see the "loppers" (lobsters) at the commissary
DD wanted to use a "kafash" (washcloth) in the shower
Oh yeah and the best was "brefkest" for breakfast...

I just LOOOOOOVE the little mispronounciations! They just make my day.

Just the other day, my four year old said that something was the best in the whole anniversary (instead of universe).

She used to call my husband's brother "Chevrolet."

The baby says babooboo for peekaboo.

Oh yes, and DD asks to eat logurt. Which is just about as cute as when DS1 used to refer to it as O-goo.

Oh, oh ... the best ever. Can't believe I forgot it. When I'm giving myself a pedicure, DD always wants me to give her a paterpillar, too!

My daughter is nearly 5 and she still asks for blubbly water.

DS (who is 7 yr old) still has several mispronounciations. Today's were: "canyons" (instead of cannons) and he wants to build an "igloop" when it snows this winter. : He never could say the word "yellow" with any grace -- it comes out "Lello" and his best friend Jacob -- "Jay-cup" (as if it rhymed with "hiccup")

when he was a baby he would say "abbadahdoo" for helicopter (we lived near several large hospitals, saw them all the time)

He is the cutest little person I've ever known!!!

DS is so very polite that even if when declines an offer, he say, "No di doo peas." I often find myself humming, "no thank you please, it only makes me sneeze . . . "

DD says "may you please open this?" instead of "will you please ...". Sometimes if I give her something - a piece of clothing, a book - she'll say "that is *just* what I was looking for!" It's so adult and so cute at the same time.

DD now age 5 used to say bipper instead of zipper. "will you bip me up peese"
DS now 3 asks for elevator when his daddy is drinking gatorade
Everything DS does he can do because "I am a big builder man"

My DD always says she is "scared to" things.

Today she kept asking me where the "cheese" was. I couldn't figure it out and finally realized she was looking for a toy camera. So cute.

DS is at the point where he says "Mamamama" when he cries. It melts my heart even though my mind knows he doesn't mean it.

LOL!!! My DS says "L" for "y" in a lot of words (lellow, lesterday) but he for some reason has no trouble with "yogurt." It makes me wonder if maybe he just keeps saying "lellow" because he knows I think it's cute!

After a pause of about four seconds this tiny little voice says, "I dont have pioritees". Laughing I said "you dont?" she looks puzzled for a moment, then her face clears up and she very confidantly announces, "No, we have dogs and goats!"
OOO that is soo cute!

I may have to duck a few rocks on this, but it was TOOO CUUUUTE...

My son (3 and a half) has learned all about the body, as he is totally fasionated with body, medical, etc...

One day he walked up to daddy and said, "you are so cute, you have testicles all over your face!" ... there was a serious silence in the room, and with a blush and a giggle my son said, "Oop.. I mean FRECKLES!"

The next day, we were pretending to make dinner out of leggos, and my son handed me a plate of 'food' and said, "Look mom, I made tasty vigina for you... I mean, lazania..."



Or, I was pretending to bite him and was tickling him and making all sorts of snorting and growling sounds and he yells, "NO MOMMY! DON'T EAT THE BABY!!!"

When we moved out to our cabin, our son was only 2. He had never seen snow before... we were driving there for our first night, and it was after midnight. He woke up in the carseat, looked out his window, and with great astonishment and wonder yelled, "What the HELL is that?!". Oh sweet innocent angel child, they call it snow....

We were singing... "... sweeping the skies away, on my way to where the air is sweet... can you tell me how to get, how to get..." when my son inturrupted and yelled "ICE CREAM!"...

When my baby brother was just 2 years old, he was "building a fence" with his father (his toy tools along side). The new neighbor came out and leaned over and said, "oh, are you hammerin' nails?" and without looking up, my little brother said, "no, I'm Connor..."

I have this thing that I started with my son when he was about 2, because it was so adorable. He asks for things very respectfully... so I started having him say "mommy, may I please have _____ please, supreme master of____" (may I have cheese please, supreme master of cheese). He still does this, and it inof itself is just too cute. This did, however, backfire on me pretty seriously on day, and in front of several people. One of our dogs pooped in front of the door instead of asking to go out. My son found it, and quite distressingly said "mommy! Clean it up! The dog pooped! Please clean it up!!!". I had my hands full and I told him I would clean it, in just a sec. Out of desperation, he yelled "PLEASE MOMMY! Supreme master of POOP!"

I was tying the 3 year olds shoes and asked if he wanted a double knot, he said how about a triple knot...then looks at me and says how about a 'fourple' knot?

I remember the time we took DS to the pool when he was about 3 and he smelled the chlorine smell and announced to everyone " Wow, it sure smells like caffeine in here!"
