Mispronounced, but cute

My wife's cousin (does that make him my cousin?) warned me to enjoy the "cute words," those words that are cutely mispronounced, now, because by the time the kid hits three, they're gone. (Or, I guess they're not cute anymore.) Here are some of my favorites:
  • Mes-a-min (medicine)
  • Mi-na-mi-na (banana)
  • Pladaloo (proud of you)
  • Bippy (Grampy)
  • Ba-bay-bees (strawberries)
  • bu-bay-bees (blueberries)
  • C'lay-ma-loom (play room)
P.S. If your four-year-old wants to get drunk before going to school, tell her it's "not a good idea."
