My kids are known for their hilarious stories and ridiculous pronunciations. They're my favorite. So, if you're ever around my children and wonder what they're talking about, let me break it down for you:
"Infective" - Infected
Faith told me if I chewed my nails, my fingers would get 'infective'!
"Expendo" - Extendo
Not that either are words, but Caleb asked me if I had 'Expendo' arms to reach the steering wheel when I drive! LOL
"Rainvo" - Rainbow
"Festible" - Festival
"Carnible" - Carnival
"Octover" - October
"Cuvy" - Cubby
It seems we have issue swapping our b's and v's...
"Bapsized" - Baptized
"Banilla" - Vanilla
Caleb always asks for a 'Banilla Bar' for snack.
"Mushstash" - Mustache
I can't make fun of my kids too much for this one, cause I do it once in awhile too! LOL
"Formia" - Formula
"Cups of Cheeno" - Cappuccino
Faith has a baby My Little Pony who drinks pretend 'Cups of Cheeno' out of her bottle because she's allergic to baby 'formia'!
"Brathe" - Brave
Faith watched me get my finger poked for an hemoglobin test with a very concerned look on her face (she is severely afraid of needles). When I told her not to worry, she asked "Are you brathe mommy?"
I never correct them when they mispronounce these things, and I usually repeat it back exactly the way they say it to me (it usually corrects itself over time, and it's just too much fun!). I wonder at what age these mispronunciations stop being cute and start becoming worrisome...
