My little one would ask for "chooz eez" which translated to "juice
please". It only took me a little while to learn how to decipher her
language structure. Now that she's four, her language is almost perfect
and I understand everything, but that’s not always the case. Yesterday
I was called once by one of Alex’s (my daughter) preschool teachers
asking why she always tells the lunch lady to "shut up" when ever she
serves Alex lunch. I couldn't believe that she would say that since it
was not a phrase I ever heard her say at home. Last night for dinner,
we had grilled hamburgers and she asked for "chuttup" I went and got
the ketchup and quickly realized that this is what she was saying at
school. My daughter loves ketchup and would put it in her cereal if I
let her! So this morning, I told the teacher what Alex was actually
saying, and now that they understand her, all is well, and she is
getting ketchup with her food without offending anyone!
Be sure to understand what your child is trying to say before punishing them for profanity that they are not intending to portray!
