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 is just two, and we thought he had very few words, but recently realised that he consistently misses out the middle of words. So we have:

Meee - Mummy
Deee - Daddy
Dooll - Daniel (DS1)
Owl - apple
Chows - trousers
Naaa - banana
Yurt - yogurt
Door - dinosaur
Trex - Tyrannosaurus Rex
Tops - Triceratops
And - hand
Gox - socks
Doos - shoes
Crot - carrot
Cron - crayon
Guk - truck

My 4 year old (not quite a toddler I know) advised me Sunday morning that we were going to have hostages for breakfast. Huh? "Hostages mom - dad is chopping up hostages for breakfast".

pirate castles are churches with steeples - like a mast?

JuniperTisane Wed 04-Mar-15 22:58:09

Ds2 calls apples 'bapples'. Its very cute hearing him ask for bapple juice or bapple slice so now we all say it and I haven't the heart to correct him.

DD (2.5) calls my bras "booby gloves". Love it!

DD (2.10) doesn't do words beginning with 'm' well so I am 'noggy' (mummy) and her soft toy monkey is 'nee-chee', she also pronounces 'f' as a shhhrr sound her foot is her 'shhhroot' for example but my favourite is 'fuffer-shhry' for butterfly grin

Goldenbear Tue 03-Mar-15 13:01:27

My 3 year old says 'munch pack' for 'packed lunch'.

StampyShortnose Mon 02-Mar-15 22:35:14

Ds was watching a film on dvd and asked "Mummy, can I have some cockporn* please? ".


Fishandjam Mon 02-Mar-15 22:32:36

DD calls a caterpillar a "pickerpackler". Nappies are "mackies" (which I've now picked up, inadvertently!)
