    used to call tuna fish 'funny' fish because she couldn't pronounce tuna.
    And my niece called me Uncle Duck because she couldn't pronounce Doug.

    Niece is danged near 40 years old and she still calls me Unce Duck, but be glad of heart, for my sister learned to say 'tuna' and has done so for the last 60 or so years.

    :supergrin:

    I remember the 'Pedestrian Crossing' signs and I always thought it said 'Passenger Train Crossing.' :supergrin:

    To this day, I still think of Roland of Giliad and his Tooter Fish sandwich. This just reminded me of that, sorry...

    With all the stuff going on, simple things and fond memories can make you smile some.

    My daughter used to call an easel an 'eagle.'

    One Christmas, that's all she wanted. An eagle and pink hippopotamus.
    Child-sized easel was easy, but do you know how many stores I had to go into to find a danged pink hippopotamus? :supergrin:

    My little sister had the hardest time learning to pronounce my name (Joseph), she called me "Jo-bis" until she was in elementary school. Then when we got older she'd call me that sometimes just to tick me off, it kind of became a joke between us.

    When she got married I signed the guest book at her reception "Jo-bis" :rofl:

    my neice (now 2.5 years) is learning animals and when she cant seem to pronounce certain sounds yet. Her 'f' come out as 'b' and her 'sh' comes out as 'ch'... so when teaching her about fish, hilarity ensues. We try not to react too much when we are in front of her though as she'll just think it is funny and repeatedly yell "bich bich bich"...

    God I hope she grows out of it before the topic of fish come up in daycare

    One of the first words my daughter learned was doggy ... because we had a doggy.
    She spent the next few months pointing to just about anything and proclaiming, "Doggy!"

    My sister's daughter, who is now almost 7 refers to me as Unkin instead of Uncle. My wife's niece says chocolate milk but it sounds like taco bell. I prefer taco bell to chocolate milk.

    I used to call my uncle kurt, uncle dirt.

    My three year old says f uck instead of truck. "Hey look, I big fire f uck" it's so hard not to laugh. No thumb sucking would sound like "no Fun F uckin" That all stopped about 3 months ago, but it sure was funny

    When my brother and sisters and I were young we all had trouble pronouncing my grandmothers name, Ina, so we just called her Nana. For a long time I thought all grandmothers were named Ina since everyone was calling theirs Nana too.

    I had trouble saying my own name when I was very young and pronounced Gregory as Geggy. My other grandmother called me Geggy until the day she died.

    One of my nephews used to call the vacuum cleaner an omi. We don't know why and think there might be something wrong with that boy.

    Mine was somewhat opposite to that, in conversation with a third party her if her age was brought up, an I refered to her as been two years old, she would chime in a heart beat an remind you sternly that she was in fact two an a half, as far as she concerned that half year was very important.

    For some reason my 2 year old grandniece has decided that my name is G. My wife was babysitting the other night and when I got home from work she tells the grandniece "look who's here." The grandniece looks up from playing and says, " Yo G. Waz up."

    I'm going to have to talk to her Dad.

    I spent years wondering what "Brock to youd" meant.

    "This presentation was brock to youd by Chevrolet", etc.
