What's the funniest thing(s) your little kid(s) have said or pronounced wrong?

My favorites:

"Dam Tacker" for graham cracker

"Blanna" for banana

"Stuck agebber" for stuck together

"Slennalellalla" for Cinderella

"Mackerfave" for microwave

and "Are fodder in hebbin, how low a name, kingin comes, will be done, unerf ezzin hebbin...." (the Lord's prayer).

Our youngest now quotes things from her movies and yells them at us when she's mad: "I want you out of my life!" and "I'm a real boy!"


This was so funny. Thanks everyone for this. I've been writing them down since my first was little and sometimes they still jokingly call things by the names used when they were babies:

"Oh-dirt" for yogurt

"Opa-meal" for oatmeal

"Samma Clock" for Santa Claus

"Damage" for da**it (fortunately a mispronounced swear word is easy to play off)

And family names mispronounced:

"Eenan" for Ian

"Murray" for Mary

"Dildo" for Dillon (I have no idea how he came up with that one)

    With my son California is Falihornia

    Africa is Acrica

    Bicycle is Bike-acle

    And I can't break him of saying buddybuddybuddy for everybody.

    "Where is buddybuddybuddy? Probably in Falihornia or Acrica on Bike-acles."

    I love the Lord's prayer. So cute.

    Oh look, I have 8 misspellings....

    My four year old calls our chihuahua an enchiwala.

    She used to transpose her TR sounds with Fs, so TRash became frash and TRucks became *ucks. We got her off that one very quickly.

    She called ONIONS younguns.

  • I took my four year old grandson to feed the ducks, at our city park. When we came home later, I told him he needed to take a bath. After running the water and getting him in, he looked up and asked me, "Grandma do I smell like a duck?"

    When my daughter was about 4 she was sitting on my knee fiddling with the earrings in my ears. "Mum" she said "How old do you have to be to get your ears peeled?" She meant pierced.

    Hmm, I know that when I was two I'd shout 'Bunnah' when I was mad. I was convinced it was a bad word.

    Oh yeah, 'Pascetti' for Spaghetti, and of course my brother's 'jokey store' for grocery store.
