When Anton was two, he would all the time ask me…
“Can you take my shoeson off?”
And it made sense! I might typically say, “Please go get your shoes on,” which he heard as, “Please go get your shoeson”…after which we may put these shoeson on. How cute is that?
He additionally used to say “long-sleeved shorts” as a substitute of pants, “foot thumb” as a substitute of huge toe, and “yesternight” as a substitute of “last night,” which by some means feels poetic.
Toby, in the meantime, pronounced his personal identify “Tibby,” and as a substitute of bike, he all the time stated “masimoto,” which we thought seemed like a Tokyo-based advertising and marketing agency.
Most of their little errors have labored themselves out, however as a substitute of “tortilla,” eight-year-old Anton nonetheless says “torteera.” And I’ll by no means ever right him.
What in regards to the children in your life? What humorous phrases do they combine up?
