"Winkie Wonka" and the "Pee Pit"


The English language defined by my 4-year-old:

Pee-Poo: translation: Winnie the Pooh--"I hate pee-poo!" For the longest time, I thought she was talking about potty training.

Winkie Wonka: translation: Willy Wonka--currently the favorite movie.

Binky Bell: translation: Tinker Bell

Pee Pit: translation: Arm Pit--Many eyebrows raise when your child is begging you to tickle their "Pee Pit" in Wal-Mart. Not a Good thing......

Berry Cake: translation: Strawberry Shortcake--"I want to watch Berry cake! She is SOOO Cute!"

Doughie: translation: Caitlin--If I knew why....I would be a rich woman.

Wee-Wa Room: translation: Play Room--"What are you doing in there? What are you doing in there?"

Wee Claus: translation: Santa Claus--At christmas time, Sassy informed me that she was going to ask Santa Or "Wee Claus" for body hair. Long story....ask me later....

Pee-Pire: translation: Vampire--Our ode to "Twilight". Sassy likes to say, "I don't like Pee-pire movies! They scare me out!"

Ironically, after all the talking about "Pee" and "Wee" she announces her need to use the restroom by saying, "I go to toilet now." She sounds like English is her second (or third) language.

It is funny, but she can say all these words correctly, she just chooses to use her own lingo.

Do your kids have their own words for things?

T has about six things that sound like "ceeweeall" for cereal and various other thing. At least you can understand her. I usually have to ask his brothers to translate. Love the pee pit in Wal-mart story.

Ladybug used to call hairbows or hair barretts "Prippy" (I think she was trying to say pretty.)

It takes a mother to decipher her child's special language.

Too funny! I love all the cute things kids say. Macy calls all food "apples".

Tyler used to say Runk about everything...in the past 7 years or so that he has not stopped talking, runk has taken on various meanings. And spellings depending on where we are and how we are feeling. it is in the Shepherd dictionary and can be a noun, verb, adverb, preposition or well, anything.
Our newest word to be added to our dictionary is via Q, and he says 'skun.' We are still working on that definition.

Hmmm... something makes me think that the demonic voice of this blog just hijacked her Mother's computer!

:D

Gary said...

Let's be serious.....We all know that Grammy Pilgrim didn't write that....Curse you! Curse you!

stoner said...

Me?? I would never use Mom's computer for something so insidious.....Face it...she just loves me more!

William said...

So, uh... you just told me on Yahoo that you are sitting at home. Well, I called you at home only seconds before I chatted you up - were you screening your calls? Hmmm?

No, because you were at Mom's hijacking her computer to say nice things about yourself! Nice! Real nice! >:(

... By the way, what's her password? :D

stoner said...

Gary! I am so offended....to make me feel better you have to nominate me on momlogic! Or I will never forgive you! :D

William said...

Your poor spelling gave you away; I'm more than certain that Mom knows how to spell disappointment.








... Bwahahahah! Just joking! :D

stoner said...

DAM YOU WILLY!

Dellp said...

I add my objection to William's and Gary's. No way, no how Grammy Pilgrim made that comment. Because, as we all know--she loves ME best!

:oD

C - I've collected my quotes through many years. I USED to be a deep thinker.
