I'm not sure this is cute, and it's definitely not classy, but it does make me laugh:

The Emperor is obsessed with clocks, but he is still learning to pronounce Ls. So when he wants, say, our alarm clock, he starts shouting "cork! cork! cork!"

Zola got a leap pad thing a mig from her grandparents for her birthday. I told her it was like a little computer, so now she keeps asking me, "Where's my lil' cuter?"
And she just told Felix, "Look! There's a honey bird!" (It was a hummingbird).

Dahlia has effectively changed 2 of our cats' names - Hoya is now HoHo (which is fitting because he is fat and black and white) and Sam is now Dan.

Molly says cherry-o for cherry. This pronunciation has carried over to berry (berry-o) and sorry (sorry-o).

"Best-feeds" to mean "breastfeeds" or nursing is the one I can't bring myself to correct him on.

Last night I thought he said "I want water and drink" but he really said "I want Deigo" (stuffed animal) so there's a bit more work needed on pronounciation here.

My daughter said reneckognize instead of recognize and they both said piddow, yeddow, etc. I guess L's in the middle are hard. They both still say patterin and satterin instead of pattern and Saturn, and they are nine and twelve. This is the only mispronunciation that is still hanging on. I'm not sure if they can't say them correctly or if it's just habit by now.


When TRS was a little guy—and totally into trains—he pronounced Norfolk Southern as (something like) nawfok suz-uh-win.

Inez has started saying "thank you" and it sounds like "kunk nu." She says kuh-kuh for woodpecker and something that sounds a lot like Bilbao for blue jay.

Oh, and she says huck for hug and it's super cute because she always says it with this upward inflection. "Huck?"

Oh how I love this thread!

She can't pronounce the "sk" sound, so she replaces it with "h,"
scoop = hoop
school = hool
squirrel = huwul

hazel = pazel (I can't get enough of her telling me that I have pazel eyes)

Iz can't grasp the "rl" sounds in words like "girl" or "world" or "squirrel". He says "guh-luh", "woo-lud", and "squoo-luh". It's so cute. And he's such a good sport about it, because he knows it makes us laugh, so he'll repeat it for us!

Poopiebaby calls pumpkins 'punkums', and since pumpkins are everywhere this time of year, he's saying it all the time.

"Mummy, punkums! More punkums! BIG punkums! One, two, free, four, five punkums!"

It cracks me up every time.

Almost everything Walter says is mispronounced, but my current favorites are:

elephant: eff-fen-eh
finished: shin-eh
firefighter: fa-FIE

Silas has been calling Mitt Romney "Zit Zombie" since early on in the election and is still doing it. In the beginning, we tried to correct him, now we find reasons to mention Mitt's name just to encourage him.
