It’s common for kids to struggle with pronunciation, but it never stops being funny. They say words like cimanimon, lieberry, sammich and pusketi. Today, I heard a new one.
I asked my son, “What would you like for lunch? A burrito or Chef Boyardee?”
After thinking for a moment he replied, “Jeffrey’s ID.”
What? Jeffrey’s ID? Who is Jeffrey and why would he want to eat his ID?
“Can you say that again?” I asked.
“Okay… I’ll go grab Jeffrey’s ID and heat it up for you. It might be kind of crunchy though.”
Jeffrey’s ID and Chef Boyardee. I can hear the similarity between the two, but only one of them would I be willing to eat. First of all, I don’t know where Jeffrey’s ID has been and second, I have no idea where to find him.
We did work on his pronunciation and I think he’s got it figured out.
So while he’s enjoying his warm bowl of Jeffrey’s ID, what funny words have you heard children say?
