When DD was a newborn, she made all sorts of cute squeaky noises and I called her Squeaky. It changed a little and she became my Sweet Squeak. When she was about two I'd ask her to say "I'm mommy's Sweet Squeak!" and she'd say "I'm mommy's Kweet Kweat!" Normally I correct her pronunciation, but I just can't with that one. Even now at 4.5 she's still my "Kweet Kweat".

DD calls Fergie from the Black Eyed Peas "Froggy"...

Today she came home and told me all about the "grapeyard" game (graveyard)...you lay down and pretend to be dead until you get tagged, in the grapeyard.

DD says "It's mines." or "it's my owns." I love it and don't care if it sounds "bidiculous" (as she would say.)

She also says "biscusting."

I remembered another one. My daughter used to call nipples, nibbles. It was pretty cute but it seemed even cuter after my son was born and she would say:

"Mommy, the baby drinks milk from your nibbles, doesn't he?"

Oooo, just remembered one --

"firefence" = firetruck + ambulance

Basically, any vehicle with sirens that isn't a police car.

DS, 10/07. Allergies: peanut, egg, wheat. We've added dairy back in. And taken it back out again. It causes sandpaper skin with itchy patches and thrashing during sleep. Due w/ #2 late April, 2012.

my 4 yo dd calls bias tape "biased tape"

but 2 yo ds is THEE best:

diarrhea is "die-duh-bee-duh"
beans are "beanses" (actually all plurals are like that, eggses, sockses. think gollum)
bunny rabbit is "rubby babbit"
you is "ou" (like french sounding)
yeah is "laaa"


he has a funny halting way of talking, and somehow he has a french accent (i can 100% affirm he has never heard french in his life) so i started calling him my "french robot". he honestly sounds just.like.a.robot. it is sooooo funny!

Last summer my DS who was just turned 2 said PLIP PLOPS for flip flops. My next door neighbour/friend adored it and was so disappointed this summer when flip flop season returned to learn that he was saying it properly now.

can i revive this thread? i'm the OP... does that give me the right? my daughter is now 5, and still mispronouncing "vampiper" -- which i think is pretty darn cute. her 2 year old brother refers to himself as "ah-me" (we think it's a combination of "I" and "me") but i'm afraid we all find it too cute, and are now referring to him as "ah-me" as well.

Ha!  I loved this thread last year and I love it now.  Right now dd has a doll that came with a pacifier.  To differentiate between the other dolls we would call it Baby Pacifier.  Well, now she calls it Baby Pass-sour.  So, the doll's name is now Pass-Sour.  lol.gif

awesome thread!

 

i got DSD a pair of goggles over the summer, and she called them "gobbles" (sounds more like gobbows) for a good month! we often correct her speech (not so much single words, but grammar), but that was way too good. im pretty disappointed that she has now changed it to "vovvles". 

we also get "ps-getti" for spaghetti.

 

she used to call ambulances "ambiances" until i sounded it out for her. now its a very painstaking "aammmm byuuuu yan ces" every time she sees one.

 

she doesnt pronounce Ls at all, so many of the things she says are just naturally cute: i am Karwa, she is Marwee, etc.

According to my 4yo ds a caterpillar builds a "raccoon" and later comes out a butterfly!  It cracks me up every time...

 

He also says that his "tummy has a head-egg" (headache) if he has a tummy ache.

 

Oh yes and cucumbers are "cu-ca-mumbers".

 

ETA.. oooh.. I remembered another one.  Vampires are "vam-pirates".

 

LOL!

My 7 YO still slips and says something like "comford-abible" for comfortable. I used to love when she'd say "istra-sted" for interested and she used to make up her own words for things. You know when you're in the tub and your hands and feet get wrinkled? One day when she'd been in the tub she asked me why her hands were "all nestargled." There was static in a recording of a song and she said " I don't like this song. It has a little 'scrumble' in it." joy.gif

Not exactly the same, but in a similar vein, my 7 year old informed me that at her school, if they wear "noodle straps" (meaning spaghetti straps), they have to wear another shirt over it. It was so cute.  Kind of made me sad because at 7, she doesn't have many of the cute mispronunciations anymore.

My 2yo was looking for "toads" in the fire the other night.  (Coals).

 

Dd(6.5) still says "comtrable", "reFrigrator", and "reraser".

 

Ds(4) says "lemalade"

 

And, a little different, but dd3 (13mo) was exclaiming over and over "Airplane!" her new word as she pointed at the sky.  Suddenly she got this puzzled look and grabbed her hair and asked me with her eyes.  I said, "Hair."  She said, "Airplane?" I said, "Hair.  Airplane" and really stretched out the sounds.  She seemed to get it then.  I just thought it was amazing that she was putting together words like that already.

I still use my kids mispronunciations years after they can say them correctly... and I get corrected for it now!

 

Calendar = clandider

Cantaloupe = cowabloop

Sandwich = ampanch

Brother = buvvah

Spaghetti = forgetti

Andrew = Andoo

 

DS used to say he was going to "Wook out the Lindow" to see if Gramma was coming. That always cracked me up.

"Oh I just read this whole thread. I haven't laughed so hard for a long time. One thing my oldest (now 33) used to say was yo-GRET. I've heard other kids say it that way in the supermarket and it always makes me nostalgic for those days. One day when he was 3 he was telling me things he was going to do when he grew up ("When I grow up I'm going to have bad habits like my Daddy!") One of the things on his list was "I'm going to say maza -GEEN like a grown up." I don't think he'd said the word before and just couldn't figure out what he meant maza-GEEN. After he repeated it several times I said "Use it in a sentence." Immediately I thought "He's 3. He doesn't know what a sentance is." He said "Mommy reads a maza-GEEN." Yeah, he knew what a sentence was.

 

Now I'm helping raise 4yo twin boys. Our laptops are compyooners. They used to be pyooners. When we go food shopping G frequently asks "Is it reGANic?" His pajamas are Kajamas, potatoes are Kataydoes. Vitamins are bite-amins. B calls hamburgers hang-ga-gers. For the longest time they said fish backwards. So pre-emptively we would start saying "Look at all the fish, boys" as we walked into a seafood restaurant lest they start talking about the "shi*."

G likes his ba-sketty and other noodles without sauce or anything else on them. He says he doesn't like them dirty. B used to say shock-it nilk when he wanted chocolate milk. I don't correct them. I think they're too cute. They correct themselves soon enough and then I miss the cute ways they said things.

 

More: When G was thirsty and hadn't yet learned the word he said "Mommy, I'm empty of drink." I love how little kids use the language they have to express concepts they haven't yet learned the words to say. He also asks for help to turn his shirts or pants "outside out"
