    When my daughter was 3, she couldn’t seem to say “because”, she’d say “ca-pause”. 33 years later we still say “ca-pause”!!

    Little trees (broccoli) and green beings (green beans) is how I got my friends kid to eat veggies, but my favorite of all time is, “I no no?” for I don’t know.

    I used to live in a small Alaskan community called “Port Protection.” As my sisters learned to talk, they started calling it “pork-a-chicken.”

    When my daughter was small she would say “too luck” for good luck. We still say it!

    My granddaughter had her own little terms for things at 2-3 years old. She called ice cream creesum and cottage cheese was snow. She referred to brussel sprouts as baby martian heads. We still use these terms.

    My little nephew were the best with his made up words. He talked about the “shock wind” to which his mom later gathered he was referring to the lightning bolts and also when she was busy making fries he looked at her and later when he wanted fries again one day he said that he wanted the potatoes thats made in the “shooting water” as the oil shoots out while frying :D The list goes on but those were my two favourites… Clever little boy still today :)

    We lived in Lincoln Park when my daughter was little…not far from a shopping area. She told people she lived in “Parking Lot, Michigan “

    My son at about age 4 liked to wear snug pajamas that were almost like tights. Since he would transpose the letters s-k in words, the pajamas were his “ksinny pants.”
