parmesean cheese in our house is "sprinkle cheese." I think I've been calling it that since I was a toddler. It was natural enough to call it "sprinkle cheese" with my own kids, even though I know the real name

Meunster cheese = "monster cheese" (now said intentionally by 7yo DS being silly.)

When he was about 2 or 3, he called the chirpractor the "practor-practor."

In our house it is "shakey cheese".

Mine says "hocklocker" for helicopter. We sometimes call pants "pantalones" and he now calls them "pant loonies".

Today he called "Green eggs and ham" "green eggs and hamwich".

Ds calls vomit "drop it", which is more descriptive (what can I say...he's a pukey kind of kid).

Dd is 8 now, but said "our chothers" for "each other" for many years. So we still say "we love our chothers" all the time.

I don't have any of my kids, but I used to call parmesan cheese "Pam and John Cheese" My parents had friends named, you guessed it, Pam and John. I still call it that!

Me: (since dinner is on the table and I am not going to start making alternative meals) "tomorrow OK?"

Today, about lunchtime "I NEEDA hot dog Mommy"

So for lunch today, DD ate almost THREE "Natural" (nitrate free) beef hot dogs.....I *guess* she NEEDED it! lol

(fwiw she does not eat buns. Just the hot dog thanks)

this thread.

yutch = lunch
breh-sis = breakfast
pooghetti = spaghetti
cute-cumber = cucumber (although she only did this one about twice ever)
pupts = puffs
butterjelly = peanut butter and/or jelly

She also can't say an S blended w/ another consonant, so we have a whole series of words: 'nap, 'mell, 'tawberry, 'nake, etc.

and my favorite right now

whim-soup. I'll wait and post the "answer" to this one later, if anyone wants to guess what it is in the meantime.

I'm too impatient to wait for anyone to play, so here's the answer.

whim-soup = swimsuit.

at our house, everything is "fresh hot clean". . . "Momma get Daddy fresh hot clean coffee?" "Momma get fresh hot clean laundry?" "Momma get fresh hot clean violin lesson?" I think even the grownups will be using it for years.
And they are all "Buggah-fies", regardless of wings.
Daddy's Tahoe is "big red truck".
And it's never just a bath. . . .it's "bafforthebabies!" said really, really fast, normally as clothes are hitting the ground.

When I read this thread a few days ago I couldn't remember anything DD had been saying - shocking really.
But we have since had:
Funder - Thunder
Fip fops - flip flops
pee-poo - PU, stinky noise (what she does for her baby dolls poop diapers, no clue where she gets it, we don't do it, must be daycare)

And for string cheese - she asks for cheese with an all over body wiggle or a curvy finger move

The TV remote is the "gimoke", and bathing suits are "baling suits". DD's mostly past the age of cute mispronounciations now, but those two have stuck so well that the entire family uses them now, and DD corrects us!

No stories of my kid yet (he's 11 months) but I do have this one:

SIL's (DH's little sister) first word was my husband's name, Louie. As a toddler, if she was looking for him in the house she'd call out "Oo-ay, War-oo?" (Louie, where are you?)

I'm a modifiedartist.gif DH is a reading.gif we have 2 angel.gifs, and DS is a rainbow1284.gif baby.gif

My DD has a small sore on the inside of her mouth, I said "oh maybe it's a canker sore." She said yeah "I have a cranker sore." LOL-too funny.

It is true though, if you have a canker sore, they sure do make me cranky. I like cranker sore much better.

Lol! At our house "big one" is the intensifier of choice. "I get big one hotter milk?" for "warm my milk up please?"

Baaa! for Boo. It makes me giggle. (It doesn't quite sound like the sheep noise it's just the wrong syllable. I give her a break cause she's 14 months old.)

My advice may not be appropriate for you. That's ok. You are just fine how you are and I am the right kind of me.

when ds was little he said "lotta lotta" for many, or several. For years dh and I would use it, too, such as: "How many people were at the party?"
"Lotta lotta."

I personally like pam and john cheese.

When DD's foot falls asleep (often from sitting on her knees at mealtime) she says "Mommy! My foots all sparkly again!". Cracks me up everytime.
