Kids are probably one of the best sources of humor there can be.
My favorite thing about little kids is their adorable baby-babble. When my daughter was first learning to talk, my husband would say that she sounded like we downloaded her from The Sims.
After a while you get used to it, and you learn how to communicate with your child using their own personal dictionary. I've kept a log of some of the funnier words my kids have said over the years and it's probably the best journaling I've ever done!
The photos in this post are of my daughter wearing a cute tee from The Talking Shirt. We were given the tee to review & take photos of via instagram, but I really wanted to showcase the photos here in a blog post too! (As a matter of fact, this adorable tee got us so many compliments that we added The Talking Shirt to our M.o.M.my-Must-Haves list!)
Scroll through, have a laugh, then share a favorite memory of your child when they were young! More details on The Talking Shirt can be found below!!
Toddler DictionaryHoda Bear: A white bear commonly found in the artic. This name is also good for all other bear-looking animals, with the exception of Winnie-the-Pooh, whose name has been shortened simply to "Ho-bear".
A-Stunk: A small black creature with white stripes, commonly known for giving off a bad smell when frightened.
Puhsy: A small green train featured on the Thomas & Friends children's cartoon. Used frequently in sentences describing how much the train is loved, usually followed by immature laughter from any nearby adults. Example: "I like my Puhsy train!"

MommyMommyMommyMommyMommyMommyMommyMommyMomMomMomMomMommmmmeeeee: A ritualistic greeting for children under four. Commonly precedes a shorter greeting such as "Hi".
Choos: The things that go on your feet, pronounced with perfect Puerto Rican flair just like Grandma. (See also: Chi-chago, charing, and chirt.)

Strawbaby: A small red fruit. Best eaten by chewing until mushy and spitting out the part you don't want on the floor. If you can find a white carpet on which to spit it out, even better.
Desdirt: A large, sandy area located next to the ocean.
Igitdadoor! Igitdadoor!: A bit of toddler-gibberish, usually yelled while running towards the entry of the domicile. Translated into adult-speak it means: "I'm letting these strangers in the house even though you're wearing a bath towel, just try and stop me!"
|Be your own kind of hipster with tees from The Talking Shirt.|
Mytonies: Small, plastic horses in all different colors. Usually the cause of a lot of crying whenever someone else touches one or they cannot be located. Frequently confused with "My-Tony", which is the pet name of a favorite uncle.
Fugk: This little green creature can be found in ponds, happily croaking and/or hopping about. Asking repeatedly about fugks in Sunday School may lead to a parent receiving an after-class chat with the teacher. Especially if said parent owns a plastic version that their child plays with at home.
|Could she be any sweeter in this Jesus Loves Me Tee from The Talking Shirt?|
Disismines: This word translates into a phrase that roughly means, "This belongs to me", but with a much fiercer attitude. It is generally followed by "andisisminestoo", which is translated as "And this also."
Torntida: Corn chips that are the most fun to eat when they can be smashed into a million billion pieces and scattered all over the carpet.
Ahhnnnts! Ahhhnnts!: Little black bugs that are the cause of general shrieking, nonsense, and slapping of choos on the floor. Always appear after the eating of torntidas & strawbabys; impossible to get rid of.
