family words?

Do you have made up or mispronounced words that you use within your family? We have several, some going back three generations! My little bro couldnt say cuddle, he said peddle, we still use that, my youngest son has come up with many, computer is palaler, thermometer is fronotter and my stepson says gisgusging for disgusting. Dondies for donuts, boogies for hair bands and boofer for watermelon are some of what I kept from when I was a child

  • Here are some from my two year old

    Bobo is elbow
    patakiller is caterpillar
    Hopper grass is grasshopper
    Nums is good food
    Monster = bugs, cracks in walls, or people that are scary to her
    Pickies are anything that comes in a jar, like pickles

    And Shookie is the name she's given her sheep (which is actually a pink and white zebra)
    But don't call it a zebra or she gets very very mad :)

  • When my first child was little, we used to pat the seat beside us and say, "You wanna hop up?" So she called a chair or couch, etc. a hop-up. That has stuck with us.

  • My DH and I say woof instead of I love you, I guess just to make things interesting. We started doing it when first started dating. There is a story behind it, but can't really remember why we started doing it.

  • Our house has quite a few. "Go-go" is yogurt. "Chu" is love you. "Cookie" means pretty much any food.

  • Kooklaid for Koolaid
    Towdle for towel
    bicut for biscut
    moochie for kiss
    jubbies is the part of our Golden Retrievers mouth that flaps a lot on the sides.
    and for our son, it is hard to tell if he wants an Eggo or a Bagle, they sound the same.
