DS has this funny way of pronouncing words that begin with "s." Somehow an "f" gets in there. So he talks about when he was "sfmall" and how he would like a "sfnack" and it's soooo cute!

He loves to sfnack on microwave cockcorn!

We have an electronic keyboard that my son calls "the companio" (kumPANyo). I've heard him say "piano" about the real piano at church, but although my partner usually refers to the keyboard as a "piano" my son seems to think it needs a different word. Maybe it's a combination of "computer" and "piano".

A "scotch" is a small amount. I don't know where he got that. At first it seemed to refer to a small thing of a certain shape: "I'm putting a few scotches of mustard on my sandwich." or (describing the lighting of a match) "Daddy made a scotch of fire on a stick." But now it seems to mean a small amount of anything: "I want to watch TV! Please, just one scotch?"

The first meal of the day was "bexxiff" for a long time and is now "brexxiff."

When he farts, he says, "There's a guff going by!" This is a reference to Oh, the Thinks You Can Think! by Dr. Seuss. If you look at the picture of the guff, you can see how he made the association!

DS (5) called helicopters "heli-plopters" when he was about 2. To this day, I can crack him up by telling him about "heliplopters". He thinks its so funny that he couldn't say it right "when I was a baby".

DS is saying most things correcctly now and it's really sad! I miss when he used to say fork-a-lift and ham-bit-i-bur for hamburger. He's 3.5 and I was hoping he would keep talking like a little kid for longer. Recently he will say something, realize it sounds different than he hears us say it, and repeat it slowly and correctly. I love the little kid words and I can't wait untill DD starts talking more.

Right now my favorite of DDs is mle-mlum for lemon

I was just laughing over an incident and I had to revisit this thread. My kids got "funpacks" of sweet cereals that we otherwise never buy for Christmas. The hands down favorite out of the selection are Corn Pops. However, my four year old for some reason can't say "Corn Pops" - who knows why. Instead, he's following us around the house asking us for "Porn Cops"!!!!!!


Kids are funny....

My two nieces used to say two words that we now as a family have incorporated into our vocabularies:

two-wuw-whum (two of them)
it off-funny (it's not funny)

My DS, who's 4, made up his own word, which means he's spinning around in circles: flip 'o-whip. Huh?

It's cute, though.

These are all from when Ian was younger, but I will always remember them:

Addy = Airplane
Helpocher = Helicopter
Tat = Cat
Oopsmeal = Oatmeal (actually, he still says this even though he knows how to say it right - he knows we think it's cute)
'Tar = Guitar
Pee-nano = Piano

Oh, and if there are two of something, he always says "There are two ones!"

We also have "heliCLOPtor," here in ny, which I think is hilarious! Also we have poctapusses and eat at rest-taunts.

My 9yo says Microscopic Word a lot (though when she THINKS about it she says it right).

We have "two ones, three ones, etc-"

We used to spend the night in a ho-towel every once in awhile. (missing that)

When he was littler
-Chocolate was "CAH"
-He called himself "LA" (maybe was trying to say "moi")
-The end part of a baguette was a tap on his elbow--I guess he thought it looked like an elbow.
-The color orange, Orange juice, apple juice and, of course, apple were all "POMME"
-Snail was a weird sound, I have to plug my nose and say something like 'ner-nuh" to get close to saying his "word" for snail.

He also has a little bit of a southern US accent on some words. Knights is "nahts" and rice is "rahce".

These are SO funny!! I have tears...

My dcs found "Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends" on tv one day. I don't usually let them watch it, but my 3 yo calls it "Monster's Home for Vaginary Friends!" I love it!

When my 5yo was little he had some great ones:
Wackamena = watermelon
Wimpers = windshield wipers
Engle mushun = english muffin
Brunk = granola bar :

my absolute favorite is when dd passes gas, she says "im barkin" dh will let one go, and she announces to the world "daddys barkin" cracks me up every single time.
post #38 of 66
My dd still can't get granola bars to come out right. It used to be gorrilla bars, now it's granilla bars.

She used to call my mom yaya instead of grandma. We were all sad when she stopped doing that.

My brother used to say am-blee-ance for ambulance.

my very articulate almost 7 yr old still says "soupcase" for suitcase. my 4 yr old says "callapillar" for caterpillar. i never correct either one 'cause i think they're so cute.

Instead of recognize... DS says...

"I NEKORIZE that picture"

it's just too cute to correct at the moment.
