My 6 year old still says rezo instead of zero and honeybird instead of hummingbird.

Hubby keeps asking why I'm not correcting him. I told him he will get it right soon...it's so cute I want to enjoy it as long as I can.

When my 4 year old started prek he kept talking about his friend dolphin. I finally got his class list out and sure enough there was Jonathan! LOL It's too cute

My 3 year old says "C0ck P0rn" instead of pop corn. And he loves pop corn, and gets really excited in the store if we go down that aisle, so we avoid it when we can. Nothing is as embarrassing as having your toddler scream "C0ck p0rn!!!!" at the top of his lungs in the grocery store. I try to correct him, but he just looks at me and nods his head and says it his way again.

My son used to say "liddle liddle liddle" for grapes, too! I wonder where that came from. Maybe he was trying to tell me he wanted the "little" fruits?

That’s hilarious!!

We’ve got one of these too. When DD tries to say "frog" she kind of skips the r, makes the o sound more like a u, and she turns the g into a k sound. Guess what it sounds like she’s saying? It actually took me a few times hearing it to realize she was saying "frog" and not imitating Dada cussing!

The cutest one, though, was her saying "sheesh" for "fish". So. Adorable. Everyone in our family started calling fish "sheesh" and I still do it, even though DD says "fish" clearly now. I was very sad when the "sheesh" era ended.

"Mama, thank you for my little brother!" DD 7/05 DS 6/09

Really.. So interesting. You know my DS would say this for small beads or balls too, maybe your right and it's a "little" ball or fruit..

I posted this on another thread last week, but it still cracks me up, so I'll post it again. My ds says "COCK" for chalk. He loves to draw on the sidewalk out front, and everytime we leave the house, he shouts "COCK COCK"

DD calls the fish in our fishtank something that sounds like "feces" instead of "fishies". Now my 18 mo is doing the same thing! Someone will come over to visit and dd will say "You wanna see my feces?" Then the little one pipes in saying it over and over... :

I'm kind of sad that DS has grown out of most of these, but here are some from his younger days:

Construction = exsqueeshun
Bulldozer = bullseedoder
Hot dog = hop dog
Choo choo = choo choot

Yep, DD loves to go for walks, pick up rocks and draw with chalk - all of which come out as "cock". And she loves to talk so we hear a lot about all 3 things and so does the neighbourhood.

Lately, she's been carrying around a stuffed red bear that DH named Manfred (after the Red Baron) but when she's says Manfred it sounds more like "B**stard".

I always have my toddler translator button set on high alert whenever we are out and about so I can inform people about what is really going on.

When my now 13yo was little, he replaced the beginnings of many words with an 'F'. His favorite toy was his dump trunk. I've got a video of him going around the house saying "Dum' f***! Where's my dum' f***?"

When my 12yo was about 3 or 4, he went through a phase where he was always telling me he had things under control, which was cute enough in itself. But he'd say 'a troll' instread 'control'.

"Josh, do you need help putting your shoes on?"
"No, Mommy, I've got it under a troll!"

And the cutest thing my 2yo says right now is 'Digga Da'. Digga Da refers to any kind of sweet- candy, cookie, icecream... The more he wants the food, the more pronounced it is... Digga DAAAAA! No idea where that came from, but I love it

a little girl I used to nanny for would say, "You's (pronounced 'use') Wecome!" in a very statement like way every time you told her thank you. I still tell people "You's wecome!"

Right now my ds says "Thith!" for "this"...and points at stuff he wants. like, "I want this!" he is only 15 months old, I love it.

DD calls music "suggik". It's funny because it's the only word I can think of that she really mangles, and yet she's been saying it that way for months.

Sweet corn and popcorn are both "porn" here too. It's great in the grocery store to have him yelling. "I want porn!"
