One of my former teachers said crayons as "crowns".

Ah yes, I remember it well. Took me quite a while to figure out that a "sweever" is one of those black-and-white-striped horse-shaped animals (aka "zebra").
"dijraff" was a bit easier, by comparison. (That's those animals with the really long necks.)

When my daughter was 2, she went to Sunday School and wanted "tickers"; turns out it was a different teacher that week, and she often didn't pronounce the "s" at the beginning of words. She was asking for "stickers"! Around Easter, I peeled her a hard boiled Easter egg; she reminded me to "wash off all the bones and plastic wrap" (shells and the membrane!) Little ones have such a different perspective!

Love your comic. As a nanny and future NP and midwife, I recommend your comic strip to my friends when they need a break from the life of a parent. Also bought a couple of your books to give as gifts to a few of my friends who are about to be new parents to remind them to find some laughter amid the daily grind.

There are 2.5 years between my son and daughter. I often ask him to translate what she is saying.
Though I am very proud of myself for figuring out that "the square thing with the square around the edges and the stuff on top" was a pop-tart. Someone owes me an award.

And, of course, Mum is somehow instantly able to translate "murflvin" and looks at Dad as if he's a stupid neanderthal who doesn't love his children.

At least 10 times a day. I stick to tea or cocoa though or I'd never be able to stand straight.

Why can I see my 4 year old sons face on the little ducks every time! These comics are the best!

I remember when my little brother was still learning to talk and I was the only one who could understand him. It sounded perfectly clear to me but everyone else said they had no idea when he was saying.

Lol. This brought back memories we r trying to block out! Our 2 year old asked us to make him a Goongu! Yup wtf is that! We did everything from a play dough sculpture, food, drink, and finally a drawing! That drink was so important at the end of it all!!!!

OK - you're comics are making me laugh so hard, I'm crying. It could be that they are that funny, or I'm just so exhausted from taking care of two little guys on my own, while my wife is out of town at a conference. I just donated to your site and will do more, when I can. Thanks for making these!

This EXACT thing has happened too many times to count. But, one particular time has stuck as a family joke. My now-4-yr-old, loves Gerber meat sticks and applesauce. (?) At age 2, he asked for what sounded like "Spickled meat!" Son, do u want meat sticks? NO! Spickled meat!!! Phone Dad. What is 'Spickled meat?' Agggghhh! No clue. About a week later, a movie pops up. With HUGE EXCITEMENT: "Mommy! It's Spickled MEAT!! It was 'Despicable Me!' Finally! One down, 18 more (years) to go!!!

That's the point. He doesn't know what she wants because he doesn't know what she's saying. Very young children that are just learning how to speak are very difficult.
