Misspoken Words

We've all heard those "out of the mouth of babes" sort of things. We've probably all got our own story of things our kids have said, too.

When first learning to speak, Bobble frequently said both "truck" and "frog" like a certain 4-letter word that starts with F.

Squiggle likes to call her purse her "person", and bananas are "bee-nuhs". Since we teach the correct anatomical words for body parts, she also says "china" instead of vagina.

I've discovered that, as he gets older, Bobble enjoys making up words. He likes to make up names to call people, too. His favourite, lately, is "cocoa banana". I have been called a cocoa banana more times than I can count.

Bobble also enjoys calling us by our first names because he thinks it's funny, despite us correcting him. Sometimes he says, "Thank you cocoa banana Christine." at dinner, and Squiggle parrots, "thank you cocoa beenuh Christmas."

Sometimes he just straight up changes sounds in words... but today we had a less-than-appropriate one.

In a fit of silliness, he changed hot chocolate to "hot cahck-lick". 


Oh good grief.

I am just thankful we were at home when that was said and not out in public. 

What embarrassing things have your children said?
