Mine is always coming up with interesting and sometimes funny names by which they refer to something or thinks things are called. Thought I would share a few examples and see if others wanted to add theirs for a more lighthearted thread.

Last night, when eating some salmon for dinner, they kept asking for it by calling it "gold fish".

Another one similar is they refers to any type of sandwich as "medicine". I don't know why, but they're' intent on calling it that, despite our best efforts otherwise.

They ask for toilet paper as "potty paper" too.

That's all I can think of at the moment, but one of my favorite others was my friend's daughter. She kept telling us during a playdate that she wanted to go to the "horsey playground". It took a little bit for us to reallize she meant the merry-go-round near where we visiting.

Alivia used to refer to toilet paper as "paper towel" which got shortened to "towel".

We call the living room either "the living room" or "the other room" (like when we are in the kitchen or somewhere else), so she started calling it "the room".

Alivia knows A LOT about presidents, and for the longest time, she referred to "presents" as "presIDents".

2 yo DS calls bananas "damn-banas"! And even though he can say both "straw" and "berry" very well, he insists on calling strawberries "die-ah-bee-uhs" (like diarrhea with a b).

My 3yo calls crackers "mess" because they make a mess of crumbles.

"Mama, I want a mess."

"Of course dear, anything for you."

"Bih-min" means either "vitamin" or "M&M." He takes one of those children's chewable vitamins every night, and I guess he likes them just as well as M&Ms anyway!

DD pronounces Chicago "Shitty-cago"

"Now I know my A, B, C's...." is "Nana knows my A, B, C's..."

I've always called her toes her "piggies", and of course, pigs say "oink", so now toes are "oinkies".

Undies are called "ninnies".

My DH says donk for bump, "Did you donk your head?". DS had goosebumps last weekend, and I said upon them. He now calls them goosedonks.
