Friday Funnies: Mispronunciations
I LOVE LOVE LOVE to listen to toddlers talk. It seems like from ages 1-5 are the golden years of mispronunciations. Here are a few zingers my kids have used in their time....
Daughter: "Mom, the kids are both drinking water and the 'dolts' are drinking milk."
Me: "Um, I think you mean adults sweetie. " :)
*My husband finds this hilarious that our daughter who is 4 1/2 calls us "dolts."
My favorite mispronunciation by my daughter when she was younger was "hanitizer" for hand sanitizer. She just sounded so sweet saying it.
Dad: "Do you want jam on your roll or butter?"
Son: "Jam it"
*This needs an additional explanation. My son has SUPER bad diction (he's very difficult to understand) and his "j" sound is actually the "d" sound. :) We laughed good and hard over this one.
Another one that I love from my son is "scripurs" for "scriptures." It sound incredibly cute coming out of his 2 1/2 year old mouth.
I do try to correct my children over time as they get older so that they can say things properly and improve in their language, but a part of me is saddened by the loss of their baby words. I need to be better about writing down and remember these!
Share yours!! What are your favorite mispronunciations by your children?
