They did it again. My little has misheard "canonball" as "tennis ball" which he yelled while diving over the seat into the car. I will fight anybody who corrects him???

I would tell mine "I'm gonna stomp a mudhole in you and walk it dry if you don't quit it!" So she made up her own song by the same name. When she gets to first grade her teacher asks what her favorite song is sings her I'm gonna Stomp a mudhole in you and walk it dry" Which was better than "Why don't we get drunk and Screw" which she was obsessed with, because her mom freaked out when it was playing on the stereo in my truck.

Oh that's hilarious

@OpposingOpposum Cannon Ball and Tennis ball are real close, Maybe Cannon balls are in pools, and tennis balls are for back seats?

@Stevil according to his grandmother he said " boomerang!" while jumping in the pool last week. I think he's just working his way through sports equipment.

@OpposingOpposum when you hear "tether Ball! " you know he's near the end of this phase.


Mine called chicken wings "Chicken bones" Imagine his teachers surprise when she asked what he had for dinner?

Whoopsie! I wouldn't have corrected that one either.

@OpposingOpposum Nope, still called them that in high school, lol. And motorcycles, murmercycles (I think because the sound).

Mistaken words were always some of my favorites. Here are a couple with my kids. We went yurt camping on the Oregon coast. There was a family of racoons that would throw pinecones at you when you left the yurt. They are now and will forever be affectionately coined racartoons! smile001.gif

When we were young and would ask where our dad was my mom would often tell us, "He went to shit and the hogs ate him. Which generally was the bathroom and no, I have no idea why. Lol. Anyway, it stuck. I ended up telling my kids the same thing on occassion...except what they heard was "hog zatem" which they apparently thought was the bathroom.so of I asked if they had seen their dad they would tell me he was in the hog zatem. Never corrected them, just giggled. ??
