Can I Call It That Too?

Sometimes it's just so funny when kids chronically mispronounce things. Scott's latest is Nutrigrain bars. He consistently calls them "Graitrinune bars" no matter how many times we coach him on the right way. When Claire was little she called helicopters "hop-poo-coppers." What is your favorite kid mispronunciation?

The thing that comes to mind is not really a mispronunciation but a confusion of pronouns.

Nephew: I can't get me!
Me: Yes, I can!
Nephew: No, I can't!

He was two. Now he is three and much more terrible than he was when he was two.

Gwen calls her memory her "rememory" and then if we forget something she asks if we put it in our forgotmery" It cracks me up!

Brooklyne has a hard time still staying V's, so I always get a good crack up when she says she wants to play "shark boy and LaBa girl"

Or that she luBs (loves) me!

I know there are more...

Oh and Madison calls creamcheese "bagel frosting" -sweet.

Love it! Sometime I don't want to correct them because the I love their own version. My very favorite from my kids is "Am-ee-uhl" for animal. Ella started it and the boys say it now too. I love it everytime. I also love that my Tucker says "eye browns" for eye brows. Someday when they start reading they're realize it and correct it themselves and I'll miss it, I know. Fun, fun post!

Our best was Nathan trying to say the name of his favorite dino:

"Dino-horse Wreck!"

("Tyrannosaurus Rex" is a mouthful for a two-year-old.)

A neighborhood kid uses a Y for R's at the end of words like: strolly/Stroller, Fathey/Father, waty/water. It's so cute.

I loved it when Claire used to call me Zaka (Jessica) and Mom tells the story of her calling "Bourne Ultimatum" the "Born Old Tomato." HA!
