When my kids were little, they said the funniest things - as I'm sure that yours either did or still do. The point is, that was years and years ago, and we still say those things around this house...do any of you do that?
When my daughter was about 16 months she loved flowers and couldn't say it - so they have forever been "dah-doo's" since then.
My youngest talked waaaay to early for his age, and of course, he did it very incorrectly. Any word that ended with N came out with a double N - for example - Kitten was Kittnen. One of the most famous sayings in our house "Aunt Shell, your kittnen is climbing your curtnain" We still say it, frequently, for no particular reason.
The oldest son, drank alot of anything - all the time. He would drink all of his milk and then not want to eat, so I had to limit his juice or whatever until after meals. He would get very upset with me. When he was about two, he was in the middle of quite a fit because I would not let him have another glass of milk until he finished his dinner. I told him that if he wasn't such a swigger then we wouldn't have to have this discussion. His reply - "I- I- I-NOT a fwigger!" Yes, we still repeat that one, too.
Like I said before, my youngest did everything waaay to early - I think because he had a brother so close in age and he was NOT going to be left out. He walked at nine months, hell-he ran at nine months, and spoke somewhat well then, too, at least understandably. My boys were HUNGRY--in the early, early mornings, and woke up mean and wanting food, and I am talking at about five am. I learned very quickly to let them eat something right away, and then give them proper breakfast later with the rest of the family. Bread and butter or bread and peanut butter was usually the choice for the early morning snack. Youngest of course couldn't tell me his preference...but he got his point across for a tiny boy walking around at the age of ten months- butter was "bop-be-be". And so, it makes sense that peanut butter was "Be-bop-be-be". Yes, we still use those words.
D has very few mis-used words, as she has always been very articulate. Even when she was tiny. For some reason, and I'm not kidding or exaggerating here, she began reading at the age of two. All by herself. No one had taught her, she just started reading the microwave door one day - "push to open" to my mom and I. We looked at each other, startled, and I ran and got a newspaper- and asked her to read a large grocery ad. She said "Open Fri. Sat. Sun. What does that mean, Mommy? You have never seen a more surprised mom and grandma...and I think we both scared the hell out of her that day, with our screaming and carrying on. To this day, she has a most amazing brain. It's something to watch when she is learning or you are teaching her something. I believe that is the reason that she has few little "cute sayings" as a child, she has always hated to say things wrong, or do things wrong...she was correcting me when she was four or five.
I think these little things are what makes a family, a FAMILY. Do you all use the sayings from when your children were little or if they are still small, do you use their words? My grown kids roll their eyes when I do it, but I think they secretly like it, it is after all, our own history.
