this is funny, because my 9 yo was an amazing early speaker and I rarely corrected her. one that somehow slipped through was 'everything' which she pronounces 'etherything'. she's in the fourth grade and refuses to acknowledge my corrections now. i'm not encouraging rabid correction of early speakers but i wish somehow i'd gotten through when she was little!!

My dad is from Kentucky and has said "sammich" his whole life.

 

DD just turned 3 and called all her birthday presents "birthday presidents." ROTFLMAO.gif

3 yo says 'willn't' instead of 'won't'. Its really hard to understand if she's saying 'will' or 'willnt' but when I told the older bros about it and they tried to teach her 'won't' i realized i'd be sad to see 'willn't' go. It's pretty much her last mispronunciation (maybe more to come?). 

 

however, my 10 year old and his best friend have always called pokemon evolutions as 'evulsions'. I asked him about it recently, becuase I don' tknow all that poke-speak and he said it is 'evlusions.' I looked it up in a 'poke-book' and it is written 'evolution' but he insisted in poke it is pronounced 'evulsions.' Um, ok. then I kinda regretted pointing it out because at 10 there aren't so many kiddie qualities still around.

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 DD called woodpeckers "knock-knock crows"... and shortly after she invented that, crows became "black no-knock-knock crows" LOL!

 

DS had one recently that was pretty funny... he's 9 and rarely mispronounces anything anymore. They were playing Little Big Planet and it has tutorials for setting up you own level. He was telling me about the 'terratorals' and I asked what that was. He explained that its instructions on how to do something and I said "Oh, you mean tutorials" and he said "Yeah, terratorals." So I asked him if they had one on pronunciation (he didn't get it)

DS2 was telling me something about "Daddy's wince-pit." After many questions he finally said "Daddy's bwew wince-pit" I realized then he was saying "blue rinse-spit," meaning mouthwash. DS3 (his twin) calls instructions "the constructions." They both say build-dozer instead of bulldozer. Makes sense to me.

Are you my friend IRL???  Because I *just* came here to post this!  My DD is 5 and still says "canimal". Which I love because she never went through the cute pronunciation phase but rather talked like a kindergartner by the time she was two.  

 

Funny sayings in our house:

 

- popsicles are both actual popsicles AND lollipops

 

- DD1 (5) uses 'otherwise' instead of 'anyway'

 

- DD2's favorite restaurant food:  macamowee and beanies

 

 

My niece called popsicles "fuckoles" for a very long time. Talk about laughing until you pee your pants!
