these are all so great, I am just cracking up, here. DH is gone, or he would come running to see what is so funny, and of course, what he was missing! Y'all must be as entertaining as the tv!
I just remembered when bearpaw said rah-rah...one of my younger brothers called me, sha-sha, and he called our dog, ro-ro! :lol:

My son couldn't say my sister's name- Betsy- he called her Aunt Pepsi. Now they all call her that.
I also have a niece named Betsy and my grandkids call her Auntie Pepsi.

My brother in law's name is Rich--well, my kids used to call him Uncle Bitch :oops: and when Uncle Bitch would lean over, his pants revealed a "plumber's crack". My kids refer to that as Uncle Bitchie pants now...

My grandchildren all call me Grandma Honey. I just love it.

Instead of spaghetti, they say "puzgetti"...

My grandson has always been so concerned about safety in the car. Even when he was just tiny, he make sure we were all buckled up. If someone wasn't buckled, he would yell--"it's not a safe car!" Even when he isn't with us now, we ask if it is a safe car...

I'll have to think about this for awhile, because I am sure I can come up with a few more.

I have really enjoyed reading all the others. Thanks, quiltncrazy, for asking for us to share!

My youngest DD loves Slim Jims and keeps a box in her closet. My DGD,who is 3, came to me one day wanting a "slam glam". It took me forever to figure out she wanted one of Brianna's Slim Jims.

My granddaughter, when asked which part of the chicken she wanted said chicken on the bone, that was a a chicken leg. About 3, she asked me why her babysitter eats mud and wanted her to eat it too but she wouldn't. After a few questions about it, I found out she was referring to bean dip.

My sister has 5 kids and they each have their own "special words".
I have no idea where they came up with these either
lizard - Galivamp
Aunt Susie - Aunt Shmo
socks - ki's (like eyes with a k sound)

This is coming from a proud Aunt. These words are now part of my great-nephews/nieces vocabulary. I know there are more, but I can't think of them right now.

I remember my own son saying tollerpitter for caterpillar. It cracked me up. When my Granddaughter was small she couldn't say grandpa so she called him Happy which stuck. Now everybody calls my husband "Happy" My Daughter used to say fra fries for French Fries in here cute little voice.
