Last year ds (now nearly 3) said tits cock instead of 6o'clock - he always said it was 6 o'clock if he saw a clock face or if he was asked 'what time is it?' - it was very difficult not to pee myself everytime he said it as I knew I shouldn't make a big deal!!

that is ds1 -(not me )

Aww, this is sweet, my dc's are too old for this now but, dd used to call a radiator, a radiogator.

bigmouthstrikesagain Mon 23-Jul-07 19:57:03

and ds said Dang-doo-do instead of train station. I miss his mispronunciations - but now have dd's to look forward too!

puppydavies Mon 23-Jul-07 19:57:52

dd likes to play "am i an amilal or a vegbidle" guessing games.

bigmouthstrikesagain Mon 23-Jul-07 19:57:57

Hopefully hers won't be x-rated!

Sister used to say Flutterbys for butterlies and cousin said Ugger Bugger for Kookaburra (Australian bird).
Other cousin was obsessed with trucks but called them Frucks which he would shout out every time he saw one on the road!
Fruck Fruck!!

Ds1 says "no piss Mummy" when I want to kiss him...Oh and he informed the whole bus that he "loved penis" He meant TWEENIES. I nearly died...

H once swore at tv calling someone a wanker, ds about 2 at the time repeated it but as "where car". We now use that instead

My little sister told her nursery that Mummywas crying because "Daddy is insane". Cue much concerned kindness towards my Mum. In fact Dad was "in Spain" on business.
