Kids say the darndest things, as we all know – they even made a tv show about it. Here is a list of some of the cute mispronounciations my kids have made and their ages when they said them.
“ah-cro-poose” said by Sammie, age 3. Translation: octopus
“Taylor lelled at me” said by Sammie, age 4. Translation: lelled = yelled
“Beeber” said by Disney, age 2. Translation: Christopher (her baby brother). This has actually led to Christopher having nicknames of Beeber and Beebs.
“Kipper” said by Disney, age 2. Translation: Christopher. She moved out of the Beeber phase and now calls him Kipper.
“may-sa-peer” said by Sammie, age 3. Translation: disappear
“tormado” said by Sammie, age 4. Translation: tornado. Look closely at how I typed the word – she replaces the “n” with an “m” sound.
“ith ith” said by Taylor, age 1. Translation: kitty.
“diaper call off!” said by Disney, age 2. Translation: Help! My diaper is falling off!
“gggg” said by Christopher, age 5 months. Translation: various. I just wanted to put his sounds in this list too.
