On Monday, I wrote a post called “Maffles are Melicious” about loving the words Mazzy mispronounces. Almonds as “SALMONS” is one of my favorites.
So many readers commented both under the post and on my fanpage with stories about the funny words their kids say incorrectly that I had to do something with them. For example, Jennifer’s son says “FOCKS” instead of Crocs so when one Croc falls off, her son yells “FOCK OFF, MOMMA!!!”
Below are 21 butchered words that I culled together from about 175 comments. Some are funny, some are adorable and some have major embarrassment potential if said too loudly in public.
Every one of them is real. (Assuming you guys aren’t lying!)
There is one more word that I didn’t make a picture for because I didn’t want anyone to skim over the post and get the wrong idea. It really needs the story attached.
“Before I had children I was a nanny for a family in Atlanta. It was pride weekend and as we walked to the park we passed a house with a front porch full of people celebrating and proudly flying two rainbow flags. To my horror, the little boy I was watching pointed to the flags and screamed “FLAG!” (but without the “L”). Everyone was silent for a moment, until I turned to the boy and said “That’s right, Frank, FLAGS!” Then they all started laughing and screaming “FLAGS FLAGS!” Thank god for everyone’s sense of humor!”
If you missed Monday’s post and have any more mispronounced words to add, please do so below. Maybe I’ll do a follow-up.

And if you are not already a fan (and why wouldn’t you be?!), check out Mommy Shorts on facebook. I just redesigned the fanpage to fit the timeline layout and I’ve been doing a lot more there than just posting links to Mommy Shorts. Like yesterday, I posted a picture of Mazzy greeting everyone from her homeland— the Apple Store. (It’s a lot cuter than it sounds.)
Don’t miss the lastest epsiode of the Mommy Shorts Show— it includes Mazzy’s audition for the remake of Fantasy Island among other things.
Alright, that’s it.
Have a great weekend, friends. I hope it’s filled with BOOBIE MANCAKES!
