Say What? Words Kids Mispronounce!

By marinka |

Ask any parent you know and they’ll tell you. At some point their child mispronounced a word and they thought it was adorable.  Because it was.  And once the child learns the correct pronunciation, it’s gone forever and we are left with the memory of the smiles that the not-quite-right word elicited.

Click through for some of the favorite mispronunciations that my kids delivered, as well as those of some other bloggers’ children.

And if you have any to contribute, please leave a comment and they may be included in the next Say What? roundup.
