My neice had problems pronouncing the letter p when she was learning to talk and pronounced it as a hard c sound. So, purple was curcle and popcorn was cockcorn. We still share the story and laugh. We just don't do it when she is around as now that she is older, she understands why we laugh and is embarrased.

I overheard my 6 year old daughter trying to correct her 4 year old brother's pronunciation. He was showing off a Lego construction:
Look at my helicopper.
— You mean your heliCOPTer.
No, it's my helicopper.
It's an airplane.

It has been over 30 years and we still have dot dogs, sketties, noonies, toofies, footsies, poopoo, peepee, and all the fun things that little ones say. We haven't had instructions in the house since our 33 y/o son said he needed constructions for the Legos.

My now 10-year-old twins would say "buggy" instead of "broken". They eventually transitioned to the correct pronunciation on their own, but my husband and I still use "buggy."

My three year old says boops! I've corrected her a couple times but it didn't take. At this point I'm just gonna soak up all the cute.

I nearly cried when my six year old didn't call the refrigerator a fidgylater. I am fairly certain you're watching my house. I'm thinking royalties might be in order! Lol

I still can't figure out how my kid's color pronunciation of Yellow went from Yeah-oh (adorable) to Lellow (adorable). How did he lose the leading Y sound??? I don't care, I still love it and there's no way I'm going to correct it.

It's better you, their parent, correct them as you can do it in the most non-condescending way whereas other people in their lives might not be able to.

I love all these comics but I especially love this one. As far as the kid-speak goes, I don't correct them. They figure it out. Sadly, we no longer have pack-packs or hiccup-trucks anymore.
