Boohr-ger, Hupaloops, and Popcakes

Zoë is quite the chatterbox and sometimes the things that she says are hilarious and altogether so, so cute. Take this, for example:

gummy burger
This is one of those mini gummy burgers. She calls it a BOOH(r)-ger, as in, “Mommy, can I have a BOOH(r)-ger, please? Pretty please?” Just imagine the looks I might get from people overhearing my daughter ask beg me for a booger.

A hula hoop is a hoopaloop.


Josh tried to teach her to say it the correct way. This was how the lesson went:
Zoë, say hula.
Say hoop.
Now say hula hoop.
I give up, Mommy.

And this utterly delectable cupcake?

Is a POPcake.

It's so cute how kids think they are saying things the correct way!!

LeAnna said...

Those gummy boohr-gers are my favorites. Seriously. Or maybe I shouldn't be admitting that. But I am, and they are.
I need a popcake, too. Right after I go do ten hoopaloops. ;)
Too cute!

So cute! I love kid-talk :) One of my kids used to call Sloppy Joes "slippy joes" -- we still call them that even though he can say it correctly!!

I'm so glad you are writing these down! I know you think you'll never forget, but time makes memories fade. My husband remembers my kids "mispronunciations" more than I do!

Aunt LoLo said...

Hahahaha...love it!

I noticed, during Joy School this week, that all FOUR of the girls call their school bags "packbacks." Too cute.

I stand by your daughter. Because that instrument of torture is definitely a hoopaloop.

Hupaloop! That's great. I definitely like that wood better! And your son what a brave little man for trying to teach her! That is so sweet! Have a wonderful day!

Hoopa loop actually sounds like more fun than a hula hoop!

I love the way kids say hard words, it's adorable. You almost don't even want to correct them..except maybe for the booger one! ;)

Hulalooping sounds like the verb.

Kids are so cute when they try to pronounce what they think they hear. I'm laughing thinking about you and Z at McDonald and she asking you if she can have a booger.

How sweet of Josh to give her lessons on how to say hula hoop. Her way of saying it is pretty cute.

Jen said...

Mine used to ask for a bite of my drink. She is using words to express herself and that is what's important.

I'm glad you're writing these down too - it's such a fun thing to look back on. Like your new header!
