As in when they are tiny and learning to speak obv, not revising for Oxbridge entrance exam...

Mine are 'Larf!' for the note that follows 'Sew' in the song Doe a Dear, 'turk-noise' for turquoise, oh and she likes to eat a nice 'cereal bath' every so often. She has recently adapted 'Grandad' to 'Dadgrandad' having noticed I address him as 'Dad'. My Speech Therapist sister used to encourage her very early habit of saying 'moo' when she saw a dog because she found it hilarious, but I drew the line there...

Bit of indulgence for the weekend and I am sick so could use the distraction!

DS (6) says By purpose - "X hit me by purpose" which we always find sweet.
DD had been to an athletics club, came home and told us she had been jousting. After long descriptions, it turned out she meant javelin.

DD is three she calls a picnic a "Pic-pic"

DD2 (2 and a half) says penis for peanuts. It is hilarious. Although slightly odd as she knows what a penis is.

Dd told me yesterday that when she was a baby she used to play football with phonecall. She meant Michael grin

She also asked for gorilla yoghurt once. She meant vanilla grin

Ds was always wanting to have a turn on my compu-kin-ter when he was small. I was very sad when he learnt to say it correctly sad

He also called dalmations dogmations!

My two year old says 'shmooozi' for 'excuse me' which I not only love but am finding hard not to adopt myself.

Dd2 who is nearly 3 talks about oppositting to mean sitting opposite. Very cute and quite sensible really!

DS3 always used to say Peabut Nutter for Peanut Butter. I was sad when he learned to say it properly as well

EvaPeron Sat 10-Sep-11 10:19:58

Also penis for peanuts. Crocilydile is my fave.

Icebeena/blackcunnenant for ribena

Tillyscoutsmum Sat 10-Sep-11 10:23:43

DS (20 months) calls DD Titty (usually loudly in public places blush

DD used to say "Will you love after me ?" Instead of look after. I thought it was quite fitting

prolificwillybreeder Sat 10-Sep-11 10:24:45

DS1 says "Uh, Uh, Uh Oh!" when something is really bad. Just "Uh Oh" for minor incidents.
Not as good as the above ones but I find the number of uh's to determine the severity of a situation hilarious!

DD splashes in the cuddles.

DD renames things in her head, so we have 'Sleepy Dreamy' for Sleeping Beauty and Doggy Spots for 101 Dalmatians.
