WARNING: EXPLICIT LANGUAGE (NSFW)

Luke talks a lot. He's pretty good at saying most things, but there are still many things he identifies incorrectly. He loves to name off letters when he sees them. (If he sees an H, he'll say "E!" For a G he'll say "H!") Zebras are called "horsies. " Anything that looks like a bird is a "chicken." Every boy is named "Johnny." He calls kids older than him, "babies." Every time one of us goes to the bathroom he'll say, "Daddy (or Mommy) has poopies." Eggs are "balls." Any red vegetable is an "onion." You get the idea. However, I'm like, "Hey, you're talking! Who cares what you call things!"

The worst offense though is his pronunciation of the word cup. He used to say "bup" when he was younger, and I have no clue how this evolved into what it did. The worst came today while we were in the Dollar Tree. He was wearing a yellow Easter bucket on his head, happily identifying everything we were walking past, drawing attention to himself, saying things like, "Toy!" "Bear" "Blanket" "Book." Other customers were commenting, "Oh, your little boy is so cute," and I was gloating because Luke hardly ever behaves well when we are out shopping. Then we enter the cup aisle (you know where they sell all the mugs that contain lead poisoning warnings) and Luke starts yelling, "CUP! CUP!" Except he wasn't saying cup how you and I might say it and it was drawing a lot more attention than his little cute identifying words minutes earlier. All I could do was say in a loud voice, "That's right Luke. Those are CUPS. CUPS, CUPS, CUPS."

If you're curious how Luke pronounces cup, here's a short video. Like I said, you've been warned, this video contains explicit language. I don't know how he turns cup into this. (Maybe Erik is teaching him things when I'm not around?)

  2. That is so funny! Kaitlyn totally used to say that word, too... I can't remember what word she was trying to say at the time, though. But it was pretty embarrassing in public!

  6. I'm so glad I'm not the only one... that's how Paul says, "Fork" it makes us laugh hysterically and we have to do the same thing in public. "No, FORK, FORK!"

  7. Kids are great. Peter does this, too, but with fork. He's got a couple of others, though.

    On our first day at our new ward, he ran around the relief society room singing ring around the roses, with a different word for ashes.

    He had a book about a dog named Biscuit. At the end he shouts, "Bye, Bit*hes!"

    The itsy, bitsy spider is the 'itchy, bit*hey spider" (that's a whole different song).

    Scratchy = sexy. "Don't wear the hat, mommy, it's sexy."

  9. This made me laugh so hard! When my sister was just older than Luke she walked around calling everyone "bath tubs"...or so we thought. We eventually found out she was calling everyone bastards! Apparently we watched too much TV in our house.

  10. LOL. Hayden used to say that word for truck. His nursery leaders thought we were heathens :). Luke talks a lot. Owen says some words but isn't speaking in sentences yet. Mostly he just says "no, no, no" as he beats the crap out of us.
