We asked KC Parent’s 14,500+ Facebook fans:
What are some of your toddler’s funniest sayings or mispronunciations?
Michelle: My daughter Lily calls guacamole rock-a-mole!
Amber: When my son was little, he informed us one day that, "Boys are misters and girls are mysteries.”
Heather: Iowa "Hot Guys" (Hawkeyes)
Korrine: Ready, set, go is "ready, cassette, go". She's 4! Where did she learn the ancient word "cassette”?
Marjorie: My son calls all fruit “fruit ninja.” Maybe he’s been on the iPad just a little too much?!?
Jay: Macken Park in North Kansas City is known as mac and cheese park to my son.
Julie: To this day, my 7-year old refers to a shower as a hot rain.
Bonnie: My son has always called the elevator an "alligator."
Kim: My 3-year old daughter doesn't pronounce s's well. When she uses the word "stinky" (usually for feet) she says, "P. U., those are kinky!”
Jill: My 4-year-old daughter calls Winnie the Pooh "Pinnie Wooh".
Rebecca: My 3-year-old insists the lyrics to "Call Me, Maybe" are "So here's my momma, now come and meet me." The correct lyrics are "So here's my number, so call me maybe.”
Miranda: My son calls the doorbell the "dingbell."
Bridget: My daughter says she is trying to "focustrate." We think it is a combination of focus and concentrate.
Kerri: “May I please have some dumb out of your person?” Translation: “May I please have some gum out of your purse?”
