Re: What toddler-speak have you picked up?

Anything that can be cooked on a griddle = pancakes (So pancakes, but also uncooked tortillas) We've now morphed that into "tortilla pancakes" for clarity sake.

This is funny. I've never thought about it before, but I guess we have adopted a few words into our family vernacular. It'll be interesting to see what sticks around long term.

The remote for the computer (which we use as our television and also for playing music) = Little Tiny Remote, which then became LTR. I'm certain this one will be around as long as we own the LTR.

Blow Nose = the soft flannel wipes I keep in the tissue box.

Those are the only two I can think of that we still use.

Cob corn = corn on the cob. I don't know why DD started it, but it stuck.

My favourite one is from one of her toys. Someone got her some electronic book thing that sings "the three little kittens have lost their mittens", and it ends with "the kittens have found their midgets!". Like, it blatantly says midgets, clear as a bell. So that's what we call mittens and gloves now. "Josh! Have you seen my midgets?"
Ok - I totally LOLed there.

My son calls Seseme Street - Elmo Street, candy is canny, Kindle id Kinnel, and CVS is ESP..LOL!

I love this thread!

"Mine" : DD's blanky
"Baba" : bottle
"Nappy time" : nap time
"Red car" : our car
"Jessie's truck" : any big truck (Jesse is my bil who has a huge truck)
"Cookie Monster ": DDs toy truck

There are a lot of others but I can't think of anymore right now!
Sometimes I feel like I'm the only one who can understand what my daughter says because people always say, what did she say? But to me its normal talk! Lol!
