What is a funny word your child can't pronounce properly?
I was just rolling around on the floor in stitches listening to DD trying to say "seashells".
See-sells. She-shells. Seize-ells. She-she-shees. She-sells.
I told her to say "She sells seashells by the seashore" and she rapidly fired back "Shells see see beach and the seaside!"
Tell us your funny mispronunciations!

DD has a voice that sounds like a little chipmunk so strangers hearing her speak in general always go "....awww that is SO CUTE!"
She puts l's after s's. Slilly for silly, slalmon for salmon. She also says please as peeeeese with an inflection in the drawn out eeee's.

DS2 calls mashed potatoes "mashertatoes" and robots are "bobots". He also says "norgy!" instead of naughty.
DS1 always used to call puddles "cuddles". " Mummy, I want to splash in the cuddles!"
Eta- both my kids call spaghetti "sgedies".
Edited again to add- DS1 called all water "goong" from when he was 1. He'd point at the sea and say it, or when he was asking for water. It took us a year to figure out that he got it from the sound of pretending to drink. He says water now, although still calls baby bottles "bogoongs".
