Oh I know it's been done before but I wanted to share these ones from ds (3)...

I like boobies (blueberries).

Can we go and collect some fellas? (feathers).

Please share your own smile.

My DD kept telling me that she didn't like Anya as nursery

took me WEEKS before I realised she meant 'lasagne'

LOL, my DH asked for cockporn at the cinema not once but twice. Can't type this without giggling at his face once he realised what he'd said.

Cross post, that last one was in response to suwoo, not just a boast about my husband being embarassing.

When I lost one of my flip-flops my DD asked me very serious if I'd lost 'the flip or the flop'

DS1 (3.5) likes arse-creams.

He used to call breakfast bretchin.

Some of these are great...

LOVE these.
DD (now age 7) used to get 'nins and peedles' when her foot felt funny. When she was tiny she was convinced that woodlice were called woodmice.
DH taught her to play the card game Knaves recently - she was asking to play it again the other day 'you know dad, that game we played, what was it - Kneevils'. So, now we play Kneevils after tea grin

LOL at all yours!

I seem to be the one in the family to have problems pronouncing things.

I was saying to DD4 (soon to be 3yo)"oh you're a big girl!" she looked at me with very angry eyes and replied very insulted : "NO!! I am NOT Igglepiggle!!""

DD calls her microphone the 'michaelphone'.

This is all very funny! I haven't got any housework done cos I've been reading it!
This morning DS(6) said "That light is bryning very shitely" (shining very brightly).
The television screen is a television scream!
My brother used to say fift lork instead of fork lift.

Thingers and flumbs.

Paddles instead of nipples!

whomovedmychocolate Thu 01-Oct-09 14:24:20

Every time DD falls over she yells out 'Mummy, I have fallen on my dignity' which is not a mispronounciation but it the funniest thing when she does it in public and everyone looks aghast! grin

She also told me to 'stop being so canwankerous' the other day. (I assume she meant cantankerous!)

DS2 (2.1) says Fire gin gin

Moontheloon Thu 01-Oct-09 14:27:34

My DS1 used to call DVDs Diveos (got confused with videos) we were all calling them diveos until he was about 4.5 and had most of the nursery staff and children calling them diveos as well grin. DS2 calls them DeebbleDs.

We don't watch that many honest blush

SoMuchToBits Thu 01-Oct-09 14:27:44

We used to have Boonalloons instead of balloons. And on one train journey, the train stopped at Stowmarket, Diss and Norwich - ds came out with "Pomarket, Piss and Porridge"!

PurpleEglu Thu 01-Oct-09 14:31:49

Just remembered DS1 (6) still says electricated, for eletrocuted.

gorionine Thu 01-Oct-09 14:38:29

Oh! DS2 used to say nipples instead of knucles!

Conundrumish Thu 01-Oct-09 14:44:57

Basgetti for spagetti (a rather large toddler aged 6!)

Fairies = feathers

Lemony-green - Millenium Green

Gorgeous thread!

My DS 3.6 asked me for a hopscotch bun at Easter this year.

He refers to gravy as 'Puddle'


Conundrumish Thu 01-Oct-09 14:48:15

Oh yes, the other day he wanted egg mayo and grass (think he meant cress!).

TheLadyEvenstar Thu 01-Oct-09 14:48:27

I just remembered ds1 used to sing Islands in the stream very well and often sang it at karaokes from very young....but everyone had to hold back a giggle when he really belted it out because he ALWAYS sang

Islands INDUSTRY instead

Caterpillar = capa tapa pillar

spiderlight Thu 01-Oct-09 14:49:17

We have 'ballerinas' instead of bananas at our house. We sometimes have them for breff-cust. When grandpa was poorly, we went to visit him at hop-skittle. DS also has troble pronouncing 'c' sounds at the moment and substitutes 't', so when we feed the ducks, they apparently say 'twat twat twat'. We avoid talking about ducks in public.

Angelene - we have a Michael-wave to heat up food!
