When ds was about 20m he started referring to his blankie as 'fwottie'. I checked many times with him, 'do you mean froggy?'but no, it is definitely fwottie. The blankie has a little elephant on it and he can say elephant so I can only conclude he's just created his own name for it. It makes me chuckle and I'd love to hear your other random toddler names for stuff.

Ds2 used to put his shoes and shocks on. And Ds3 (2yo) asked me for a gonut (doughnut) the other day.

ds 3's wee pal named jumping on the bed eeko-eeko so now they eeko-eeko together. We also have a game where we bump tummies that ds calls Issa and we have to say it every time we bump.

DS1 (2) likes to watch 'scarf' which to you and me is bbc iplayer confused

He's otherwise very articulate and I've checked repeatedly but it's definitely 'scarf' according to him.

DD1 at 18 months named her dressing gown "down gown", and it's stuck with all of us now ever since

Our knives and forks are cuttery.

My then 2 yr old called the tin opener 'a spanner for beans' once when trying to explain what we should have for tea and how to prepare it.

Its still known as the beanspanner at home grin

My now 18 year old half brother called elephants 'billubilubs' when he was a toddler. I renamed feet 'kebbies' (still call them this; I'm 32 blush)

Hopelass Thu 28-Nov-13 21:17:58

Should add said half brother is in a rock band, has waist length black hair and loathes being reminded of 'billubilubs' hehehe!!

Ds has a picture of a giraffe in his room to help him identify it we always said it's a giraffe with a long neck.

yes, he now calls them neck. We love it.

The name wee tail has caught on after dd1 asked why she didn't have one and daddy did.

benjalamummy Thu 28-Nov-13 21:31:27

moonk = milk

diggint = what froggy says when he wants to eat flies, apparently

a boioioioioioinggggg = a spring

elQuintoConyo Thu 28-Nov-13 21:34:37

DS aged 2:
Yoyi = lorry
Chupi = dummy
Poppy = strawberry and yoghurt , notwithstanding its flavour!

Not much more though! Can't wait for more.
When I was young I called a dressing gown a dressing garden, and armbows were elbows - I'm 30-something and still use them, as do my family when we're all together smile

We watch the teddybishun(?) in our house smile
My dad, who we've always referred to as Grampy, became 'mynor' as soon as ds1 could speak. He is now known by that name- to the entire family!

I used to call gooseberries 'duftiups', digestive biscuits were 'tum-honeys' and my brother used to call his woollen hat a 'waddie'

I'm completely outed now if any of my family are mners! grin
