Mis-heard?

I have to admit, I love listening to children when they are learning to talk and some of the mis-pronounced words they come out with. I know some people get cross but sometimes, I don't correct them because the new words are much better than the normal one. Like square words. There is no such thing as a swear word in our house anymore, nope, they are square words. It seems to work.

Today we went to town for our usual Thursday afternoon jaunt. As we drove into the car park, J started reading a sign;

J 'Lower level parking; parent and child and dismembered parking. We're not dismembered are we Mummy?'
Me Sniggering 'No, darling, we're not dismembered'
J 'Good, because I don't think it sounds very nice and you have to have a yellow chair. I don't want yellow, I want purple'

Its back to school next Thursday for J. I am going to miss having him around during the day.

LOL! I love all the funny things they come out with. When she was little my daughter didn't want spaghetti balls and eggs for dinner. Took me a minute to work out she meant spaghetti bolognese :)

That's cute. I love all the little speech foibles too, lucky for me Jaim has some impediments so I have plenty to laugh about. In the nicest possible way of course :)

I NEVER correct my kids. They will grow up sounding like idiots, but I will think they are so cute!
