Funny things your toddler mispronounces

DD has just turned two. We call her private parts a 'tuppy' which she mis-pronounces as 'pussy'.

Took her to the toilet in the doctors and she asked 'what's that' pointing at my privates so I said 'mummy's tuppy'. We got back into the waiting room where she announces v loudly 'I like mummy's pussy!'

I was so embarrassed and tried to correct her only to make it still sound as weird. My face was like blush for the rest of the wait! I laughed about it once I got home though.

Anyone else got any funny ones?

Just call it a vagina or vulva depending on which bit you're referencing. All these Tuppys and Pennies and "bits" and Moo Moos get confusing when they go to school.

3 year old DS is into Fireman Sam and one of the fire engines is called Venus. Unfortunately DS pronounces D's as P's...😐

My youngest used to call the tv show "Zack and Quack" as sack and crack.

My DDs first word was bye. Which unfortunately for months was pronounced as die.

I have no idea what he thinks he is saying but 2.1 ds keeps saying fuck. It's not book or duck apparently. I am hoping we get to the bottom of it soon though!

A tuppy? Ffs.

We have the same Fireman Sam Venus/Penis issue here.

He's 8 now but DS used to pronounce the Community Chest card in Monopoly as "Commune- titty" grin

agree with not calling private parts as anything other than what they're actually called btw

My eldest named her vagina a "front bottom" so that's what we use.

I asked what funny words your DC's mispronounce, I didn't ask for advice on what I should call her privates. Didn't realise it was such a crime to call it a tuppy, sorry! Next time she asks what something is, I shall consult Mumsnet to ask what I should tell her instead of deciding myself.

Haha Shesinfashion sack and crack made me chuckle!

DO has come out with some belters over the years.

Blackcurrant was pronounced as 'Black Cunt'

Hoover was pronounced as Woore

Often when I was hoovering she would say 'mummy whore'

One morning the dc were playing and dd asked for sticks, I said there are no sticks. DD ran off asking her brothers to help her find the 'are no sticks'

Dd also has problems pronouncing f sounds. They all come out as s sounds.
So she asked her teacher to find the slag, of course she meant flag grin

DD can't make the "tr" sound. Traffic is fuck it. Truck is fuck. So, if there's a truck in the traffic jam we're sitting in...
