From the mouths of babes #29

From the mouths of babes is a weekly linky which invites you to share a post, old or new, about something your children have said. Those adorable mispronounced words, the glimpses into their imaginations, the blunt observations – whatever it is, I’d love to hear about it!


A big thank you to everyone who linked up last week. I loved the list of things that Monkey has said lately from Becoming a Stay at Home Mum – especially ‘nockynurs’ for binoculars. I also loved Nipper and Tyke sharing Jet’s request for water and a lid for his aquadoodle pen in the style of a supermarket tannoy announcement – very funny.

I love Sophie’s pronunciation of ‘the’ at the moment – when she wanders around naming things, she sounds like she’s trying to learn German. Most things seem to be masculine – “der Buggy”, “der Book”, “der Water” although the iPad appears to be feminine – “die iPad.”


Jessica has a word that forms part of a language all her own – “kalla” – it means “carry me”. At bedtime when she is tired she will often ask “can you kalla, Mummy?” meaning “can you carry me upstairs to bed?” Sophie has also started saying it a few times too so I think this one might stick around for a bit.


If you have any posts about something that your children have been saying lately, please do come and link up. The linky opens each Monday from 6am and closes on Friday at 11pm so there is plenty of time to link up your posts (old and new posts are welcome!). Please add the badge below to your post so others know where they can also link up (the badge code is below). I will also try and share posts via Twitter – please use the hashtag #ftmob and I’ll do my best to retweet them. I also have a Pinterest board and will be sharing posts here too.

Looking forward to hearing what your little ones have been saying.

  1. Brilliant! I love watching their language develop – it’s one of my favourite things. F is becoming so expressionate but still has very few words. He actually said ‘bye dadda’ this morning though 🙂

  2. Hahaha I love the die ipad – poor ipad. How can you resist to carry her when it is being that way…Kalla sounds really sweet. 🙂

    1. Die iPad makes me chuckle too – definitely hard to resist “kalla” – it does sound so sweet 🙂

  3. I love the idea of their own words, kalla, is so cute! With them being fairly close in age and now both speaking I wonder if they will develop any more of their own words?
    It’s so interesting isn’t is, watching their language develop. We are trying to decide what our approach is going to be for Boo at the minute – with learning both English and Danish and we can’t seem to decide on how is going to be best!

    1. I love watching language develop and seeing children develop a little language of their own too. Must be even more interesting when there is more than one language to watch out for 🙂

  4. I love it when they get to this stage and start to pronounce words in their own little way.
    Kalla is a super cute request for ‘carry me’.
    Thank you for hosting as always 🙂 x

    1. I love the little toddlerisms that they come out with – “kalla” is definitely one of my favourites and love that it seems to have stuck 🙂

  5. Thanks for that, Louise. I’m glad he made you smile… 😀
    I will link up to ftmob again when I have collated his latest wisdoms. Thanks for hosting
    x Alice

    1. My pleasure Alice, will be lovely to have you whenever you have a post to link up – always love reading the things that little ones say 🙂

    1. Lol, I hardly speak any German so she hasn’t learnt it from me! We are trying to teach the children French though although so far with very little success – Jessica did say “bonjour” and “merci” when we were on holiday in France last year, but that was about it.
