Comments: How to explain this one?

I am SOOOO happy our sons are not playing together right now. Let me know when he gets past this stage. Then I'll be glad to invite you down to Disney. ;-)

He's trying to say Truck... he's not meaning to swear! Jeez!

I had a cousin that had problems saying Kentucky Fried Chicken

It came out as "fucky fried chicken"

They eventually just started calling it KFC

Reminds me of a story... my mother and father were just leaving Mass. Pa stopped to shake hands with the priest at the same time a dump truck was going past. I guess Ma was a little red in the face when I started grinning like an idiot, pointing and screaming "Fuck, fuck...!"

Come to think of it, I still do that.

My old red Chevy S-10 is known as "Fred" from my then-3-year-old (now nearly 15, wherehasthetimegone!) nephew trying to say "Aunt Jenna's red truck" - which, of course, was pronounced "Aunt Jenna's fred fruck."

This was very funny. Not so funny when the day care director called me and asked me to keep my son home until I could work with him on his pronounciation.

Still, it was very funny. I had to work so hard at not laughing I got a migraine.

Reminds me of a Faulty Towers or was it a Monty Pyton skit.

My sister could not pronounce her r's or tr's. So my brother would get her to say, 'I stepped in a truck full of shirts' and of course it would come out, 'I stepped in a F*ck full of Sh*t'. He LOVED that. She was 3. You have a long road, my friend. ;-)

I could barely keep from laughing! My son is at that stage now too. It started with me telling my husband "Good Luck" for a job interview, his version was not so clean. But he says "sh" for his "s" sounds sometimes, so "sit here mom" doesn't always come out right either!

Just wait until he learns that goofy song, "Banana - nana - fo fanna, me my mo manna..."

and he tries it with truck.

I understood Contagion. I laughed the whole time I read it. I could just picture my son repeating what your son said WORD FOR WORD. Pronouncing it just the same way.

Ok, I have heard of kids (even my own) mistaking FORK for f*ck, but never have I heard of a truck becoming a f*ck. LOL Gotta love the beginning stages of vocabulary. LOL
