"Sorry"?

The word "shaong" is actually "PHONE!" so he is replacing the "f" sound with "sh" basically. Yesterday he said "shun" for "fun" as well. Silly boy!

Yes..."sorry"

New word for today--heard siblings watching and playing along with a kids' show The word "ba-pa"

I am amazed my babe does NOT have a word for "phone" yet as literally EVERYTHING he grabs and can put up to his ear becomes a phone...lol maybe that is what he means when he puts stuff up to his ear and says "Da? Da?"

no idea what 'dammit' might be other than 'dammit' we all used to get a kick when i worked daycare out of little kids who substituted "F" for "tr" and liked trucks

My DS does this too! Every phone, every toy that COULD be a phone, every remote, etc he will talk to Daddy on! And now, he is also talking to "Papo" (DH's dad) on the phone.. So yeah, that is definitely what he is doing!

My friend's DD (now 7) used to say 'truck' like that. It was maybe only a couple weeks after I'd first met them, lol, and then the same day she said 'kitty' but replaced the K with a T. Something came over me and I asked her to say 'kitty truck'. They haven't let me live it down to this day.

Life with a toddler: it's not so much the volume, it's the pitch!

My favorite... "Sack o' doo-doo."

I'm just going to tell you, because it's not fair. It's "Snickerdoodle." For some reason, my mother started calling him "Grandma's Little Snickerdoodle" when we were in WI for the holidays.

I think "Sack o' doo-doo" is much funnier, though.

If someone can help me figure out what "wha-whee" stand for, I will be forever grateful...

My 22mo DD drew 3 similar shapes on paper today, telling me they were "wha-whees", but I have no clue what she means. I have gone as far as figuring out they are animals or fish, as she claims they are at the zoo (this doesn't mean they are zoo animals by the way!!! They could be bugs for that matter...).

I also had her look at all the pages of an animal book to tell me which one it was, but no "wha-whee" to be found... Help!

wa-whee sounds like lorry to me! But they aren't at the zoo..


My current fave is "gog-gul". Clue: we have lots of them in the park...

DD's bestie is "Al-buh" & aeroplanes are "al-puh", very confusing.

I have a mystery word for identification, too. When DS doesn't know what the word for an object is, he'll say "dah-cah." It's weird, because he used to point and say "dat" when he didn't know a word (or for a while, he just pointed and said "dat" for EVERYTHING, known word or not).

Here's an easy one that I actually KNOW the answer to. What is DS bellowing for when he yells "F%*K!" repeatedly at dinner time? He shocked some friends we had over for dinner before we explained that he's not dropping F-bombs left and right, he's asking for a very specific object...

Blizzard_babe, "fork" is an unfortunate word in our house too...

We have a "dammit train" in our house, too! DS has never seen the show, but got a Thomas train from his cousin for Christmas. He'll come up to me and say, "Where train dammit? Where dammit train go?"

I finally figured out DS' "walrus." Apparently it means "watch us." Not sure why it's plural when he also knows the word me, but he wants me to watch whatever he's playing. I figured it out because now it's become "Walrus Mama!" and then "CLAP Mama!" even though we don't do a lot of clapping praise.

Happy with my DH, 2 kids, dog, fish, and frogs

DD 17 mo. says "caca".

I won't make you all guess since it's a stretch- trashcan.

As in, "Don't play with the trashcan honey, it's yucky!" She pronounces yucky as caca.

Now anything she can't touch is caca.

"whoa, whoa, whoa"....."me-eh-wee, me-eh-wee"

(I have a singer! in addition to this song he likes Old McDonald ("E-I-E-I-O!") and The Wheels on the Bus ("ah day ong!") And Ring Around the Rosie (dances in circles singing "wody-wody" till he falls down, lol)


Ohhhh who knows the children's show theme song for this one? "Iiii---ooo, Iiiii--oooo" he has a little toy of the character and dances in circles singing this.
