I was listening to NPR Radiolab last night and there was a story about divers rescuing a humpback whale that was caught in crab traps. In any case, it brough to mind that my SS used to call humpback whales, front-back whales. He also used to call me "Minty," instead of my old nickname "Missie." Any kidisms that make you chuckle?
Last Monday we had a storm and it was raining really hard and my daughter was looking through the glass screen door and said " wow. The clouds sure have to Pee a lot. They must have been holding it for a long time.".... I couldn't do anything but laugh... I of course giggled to myself...
*ETA- My dd is almost 6 yrs old, her birthday is at the end of June.
Me: YDD why did you put your earrings in your slippers. YDD: its the
safest place for them if a robber came Me: lol yes im sure your earrings

When she was like 2 or 3 shortly after thanksgiving she came up to me and said mama can I have some pay in the bitch. I was like what did you just say? She said can I have some pay in the bitch. Now this went on for like 3 minutes and I swear that is what she was saying pay in the bitch my DH was laughing his butt off. Finally I figured it out she wanted some pie in the fridge.
My sd from my first marriage had an issue with pronouncing t's. She also had a fascination with trucks, as most young children do... so yeah, instead of firetruck, it was firefuck. Considering that we lived by a firehouse, we heard this quite often.
Dd walked around for Halloween. T each and every house, when they asked what she was for Halloween, she announced her first and last name, She was 2. She was wearing a princess dress for all of 5 minutes. Then it was a pumpkin shirt and fairy wings,
SS 3 at the time has always had a hard time with pronouncing the letter "S". We were at the park and he picked up a couple sticks and gave me one to hold. And when he said stick it totally sounded like he was saying Dick
So he was like: I have a dick! I have a BIG dick!
Then he went up to some strange man, pointed at me and said "look! (my name) has a dick!"
