Remember when your children were babies and they didn’t always say things correctly or used made up words or words that sounded the same but not quite right? For example I know some young kids call their brothers “bubba” because that is how it sounds to them.
Well our family may be past that age with our youngest being five but we still tend to use them for fun or in jest. So here are a few of our family funny sayings.
Fruit beer: otherwise known as Root beer. One day my husband asked my daughter if she wanted root beer and she looked at him funny and said “Fruit beer?”
Eat Eat: otherwise known as Chef Boyardee canned meals. I’m not exactly sure how this one originated but it happened when my daughter was just learning to speak. I think I would ask her what she wanted to eat and at the time she LOVED Chef Boyardee and she would point at it and say eat, eat.
Ernie: otherwise known as orange. This one came from my oldest son. I don’t know if it was because Ernie from Sesame Street was orange he thought that was the color, but he began replacing the word orange with Ernie.
Momo: This one is not ours but my sisters family. They didn’t like to use any rude words when wanting to say someone was acting stupid or silly so instead they call them “momo”
Johnny Juice and Mommy Juice: My nephew doesn’t drink soda and one of his staples as a toddler was juice. So when he saw his uncle drinking beer or his mother drinking Diet Coke he called them respectively Johnny Juice and Mommy Juice. He still calls them that to this day.
