I give up with my 2 on this word. We have 'bana' from my 4 year old and 'na-na' from my 20month old. Is this a tough word or something?! grin

DD (13 months) has been saying nana since she was about 9mo old. It applies to all fruit though, whether banana or not.

ds (18 months) says bananananana.
It is also his word for belly button for some reason hmm

They're called 'No' in this house smile. DD used to love them, but just recently has gone off them and says No if they're anywhere in her vicinity.

That's clever Lionstar!

My 2YO DS can't say banana he says 'nana' it must be the joining the same letters together

Yes I had to report myself to MNHQ which was rather surreal I came in and I have my details on log on at all times thingy and my 17YO twat of a brother was on computer whilst friend was on his own laptop under anoither name cant remember what but havent spoke to him since! Sorry if anything was said to you I did explain but no one seemed to believe me which is fair enough but I am making a point of not chaning my name as people keep telling me to do as that surely proves I am not lying.

my ds 1 was well into thomas the tank engine but would say 'the f*cking-troller' for the fat controller.
I was mortified at the time but it makes me laugh now.

Dottoressa Sat 19-Jul-08 21:01:20

They are still "binanas" in our house...

youngbutnotdumb Sat 19-Jul-08 21:02:25

PMSLat captainmummy my brother used to do that.

Lizzzombie Sat 19-Jul-08 21:03:17

My DS (18 mo) calls a banana, "B*gger!"
Its very funny but very embarrassing! Especially when he gets excited about having/seeing one and starts shouting it over and over again. "b*gger, b*gger, b*gger!"

captainmummy Sat 19-Jul-08 21:05:01

he also couldn't say swimming but loved it - it would be 'i want to go minging! Minging, mummy!)

youngbutnotdumb Sat 19-Jul-08 21:07:33

Ooh is there an episode where The Fat Controller goes swimming then he can be

The Minging f*ing troller

ybnd....i know we have crossed swords before, but it became pretty obvious that the later posts were very out of character for you, or that if it was you must have been taking some heavy duty sh1t! people forget easily around here wink

<hijack over sorry>

youngbutnotdumb Sat 19-Jul-08 21:26:45

psml Daisy we havent crossed swords just had a friendly debate LOL. I never intend to 'fight' on here just some things I say come over wrong.

Dont think anyone noticed hijacking anyway.

LackaDAISYcal Sat 19-Jul-08 21:33:23

lol we all do that with things we are passionate about smile

callmeovercautious Sat 19-Jul-08 21:45:40

"ballalas" much to Gps delight. Apparently my Mum has been questionned over her use of the word grin

CMOC joins the hijack - YBND - glad to hear that, I read the thread later and was a bit worried you were on something hmm

Slowdown - DD speaks very well for her age but bananas are just beyond her grin

Sassafrass Sat 19-Jul-08 22:14:59

Dd (3) calls it a mana in english and maan in swedish (it's banan in swedish really).

BayeauxT Sat 19-Jul-08 22:16:22

babanana until recently - now says it proper; how I miss the old days! (Also babaloons for balloons, but no more...)

BayeauxT Sat 19-Jul-08 22:24:36

Hey Sassafrass, how does your DD cope with ananas?
