this has been my favorite so far: my 7 y/o DS likes to help me check the pool chemical levels by measuring the water then adding drops of the testing dye to check chlorine, etc...anyways, the other day after he swam, I wanted to check out the levels so Adam said "Do you want me to get the pool testicles?" (chemicals) I nearly peed my pants!!

HA HA HA!! So funny! My best friend's son does the same thing....last Christmas we went shopping and he was yelling in the store "Mommy, I want "Percy" (but left out the R sound!)
I was laughing my butt off, but my friend wanted to DIE!!

OMG, I'm almost crying I'm laughing so hard.

I knew someone years back who's little sister used to say 're-neck-er-ize' for recognize. Funny how things like that stick with you- I still use that as a silly even though I haven't had anything to do with that family for 15 years or so LOL!

And my younger bro used to say he wanted "more lort" for more dessert. Still use that one, too. Even though that was about 30 years ago .

MY DD used to say "Damma" instead of Grandma. {My mother and I actually thought she was saying something else the first time b/c she all of a sudden said "Damma Sue" out of the blue. We honestly thought she was saying "Damn Sue" Eventually we did figure out that she was saying Grandma.

Another DD word - "hopsicle" for hospital

MY DS has had some as well {but what kid doesn't?} - "hopsital" for hospital, "lellow" for yellow, "modecycle" for motorcycle.

I should have written them all down when both kids were younger...I know DD had a bunch more, and so did her brother

I just realized today (because she says it in context too) that DD says "its too heavy" when something is difficult.

She also called a cucumber Keyara (her newest niece's name) but I think she was making a joke lol.

I am dying laughing here, easter fucket, cock porn, pool testicles! :

I'm sure I can think of more, but off the top of my head, my 3.5 yr old says Blistern for blisters (like on his feet if he wears sandals) and ass-layer for escalator (it was pretty funny trying to figure out what he was talking about!)

He constantly says 'Dada pick you up' instead of pick me up.

And he gets his pronouns confused- "mama's sitting in his seat"

I'm trying really hard, but I'm having trouble working out the problem with 'percy' - I think it's an accent thing, since I'm not American. Can somebody please enlighten me??

Think of the "Pe" part as "puh" and the r isn't there, so the ending would be "see". I don't know if I'd get in trouble if I spelled it phonetically, but let me just say that it is pretty crass slang for a certain part of a woman's body...

My 3.5 year old will ask, "Whobody wants ice cream?" or whatever the question is. I haven't bothered to tell her "whobody" isn't a word because I still think it's too cute.

She'll also often ask "are you want..." instead of "do you want to..."

DH saw a creepy spider today and DD told me the spider had bangs (instead of fangs).
I try to not laugh or chuckle (sometimes impossible) b/c DD will often get this "uh oh" look and than ask, "Is that not right?" and it breaks my heart.

A-ha! Thanks for that, it was definitely an accent thing. I couldn't work out why the word describing pus (as in the stuff which comes out of pimples) was so shocking

DS isn't really talking yet, but I was watching my 3yo niece yesterday so I have several fresh in my memory.

nolybaw = granola bar
her = him (as in "I gave her some nolybaw" which made me think she gave it to her doll, but she really gave it to DS! yikes!)

She uses "Y" for "L" so Lucas comes out "Yukkas" and library comes out "yiberry". We went to story time today and afterward she was yelling across the room to me, "I want to go yuk for books in the yiberry!"

I used to call a washcloth a "lothcloth" and my brother called a motorcycle a "mo-copper." Oh and my nephew used to call the remote the "meee-mote."

Had a cute one the other night...

I got a new game for my 3.5 year old, and he wanted to learn how to play it. He brought me the directions and said, "Here! Look at the erections! The erections always tell you what to do!"



I almost peed my pants!

I'm not convinced this thread is dead yet.

DS says "apposed" instead of "supposed" - as in, ""You were apposed to knock on the door!"

It makes me think of Joey, on Friends: "Did they go to the zoo? ...Supposably."

Ok will kick the thread into motion again too.

I have not really taught DD the word 'Nipple' yet (after travelling on a plane with her shouting loudly I want the Booby I figured 'Nipple' would be on a need to know basis). So the other day she pokes it and announces "Mummy's Mole.

Who stole my signature!

The first time DD asked me if I'd had some "penis" to eat, I was
(Pronounced "Pee-nuss" rather than "Pee-nis") took me a few times to realize she meant "peanuts", because she says them the same way.

"I want my midgets on" (mittens)

She calls my father "Jumpa" instead of "Grampa" (my father is very clear that he's not "grandpa", he's "grampa - with an 'M'!")

Oh! And, this last week I made popsicles out of yogurt and berries, and DD was calling them "Lollipopseeclees".

Well, when ds was almost 3 he got to watch Chitty Chitty Bang Bang with his dad. He was so excited to tell me that they watched the "Sh#tty movie"!

Lately he has been telling me about all of his "jobs"--he works in Sacramento now at the "Uvinersy" (University)

Last weekend he helped dad with the "mow lawning" which he sometimes just calls "lawning"..


Aaah, can't they just stay this innocent forever??

Oww, my sides hurt from laughing so much!

My 3 y.o. says 'bekwist' for breakfast, and now we all say it, especially if we're pretending to nibble each others' toes or necks, we say 'I'm gonna eat you for bekwist!'

He also calls the stubble on my legs 'fwingles' - I don't know what that's supposed to sound like - but we've all adopted that term!

One day I told him he was so cute, and he said 'Mom, I'm not cute, I'm a door bell' (adorable).

My 6 y.o. still says 'no I amn't' when he's mad or frustrated.

For the longest time it was "aminals" instead of "animals". DH and I secretly loved that one.

This morning, DD used the word "squouze" - you know, the past tense of squeeze? "Mummy, you squouze me too hard just then".

My one dd is always "busy"...placing random objects on a ledge...all lined up very neatly, folding paper and putting it in any "slot" she can find. When I ask her what she's doing she says, "Well, I have to do my work-job right now". My other dd has recently become facinated with language (it's neat, b/c I am too). We're teaching the baby sign language, and my niece does it too. The other night we were taking a walk and my Italian neighbors down the street were speaking Italian (very loudly) and she said, (fascinated), "OH! They're speaking Sign English". Sometimes, she'll be trying to tell me something I can't understand and it's a made-up word that she claims is "Spanish English". SO CUTE! Both of them.

Yestertime = yesterday (or some moment in the past)

Grilled cheese sandwich = gorilla cheese sammich

I amn't = I'm not

When he was one he would say sh*t instead of sit. (I was happy when he dropped that one!)

My 3 year old has a little santa claus pillowcase and she refers to Santa as "Yo ho ho". It always cracks me up, and puts in my mind the image of a Pirate Santa.
