Deciphering Kiddie Language

Funny how as parents, we are the only ones who understand our children's language. My little one is growing up and I somehow miss how he once mixed his sentences with his own words. And being so animated when talking, the cuteness just overflows.

He says: You have BIG hekabumbum, I have a wittle wittle one.
He means: I have a humongous breast (from the size he was showing with his arms), and his is little.

He says: Mama, where's the mohmote?
He means: Where is the remote? (Daddy has trained him early)

He says: I luv hang-guh-ber.
He means: He loves Hamburger. (Could he be more German with that word?)

He says: I bog my head. ( Bog is more like a big thump sound)
He means: I hit my head.

Children are so fun! What funny words have you heard from children?

My kids have always said weird things but the one that always stood out is when my now oldest (who is 12 almost 13 this August, lord help me!) was about 3 years old. She used to say something like this: "meanit mutter manwich" for peanut butter sandwich. It was always said fast and it was funny.

She also was trying to learn the word fish once and we tried to sound it out because she always said sif (sort of backwards). So we said say : fa-fa-fa fish. She'd say fa-fa-fa- sif! It was funny then.

My little one isn't talking yet, but my four year old nephew always says "Bomma and Bompa" (grandma and grandpa) even though he knows how to say it correctly.

My daughter used to say "fridgealater". We realized that she picked it up from us, because, because we always told her "We need to put it in the fridge for later."

Hi! Got here via your comment on my blog. Thanks for stopping by and commenting. =)

My son says "met-mih" for oatmeal, and he says "me's" (as in, "No! That's not Daddy's! It's me's!"). Also instead of "watermelon" we get "mellamelon," and from Toy Story he picked up, "all right, you wanna piece of meat?!"

We're also working to correct my bad influence. He'll say, "Dangit!" and then make sure to point out, "I didn't say damnit, I said dangit!"

Kids are so cute. I love their little language mixups - so precious!
