Toddler Tourettes…


I had the pleasure of my friends little one today to help her out while she is away with work.

Her little one, Millie, and my little one, Ben, are only 8 weeks apart in age and they get on famously so it was a real treat for my little lad to have his beloved at our house for the whole day.

Ben is trying to say words now but they don’t always come out correctly. He’s only just turned 2. Because of this, for the past 3 months, he has been calling his best friend, Willy, instead of, Millie.

Funny, yes. Cute, yes. Embarrassing, certainly, especially when he’s shouting it out going down the road near school because he’s on the lookout for her. Every. Single. Day.

Millie, it would appear, also suffers from the same, cute toddler mispronounciation affliction. Except hers is in place of saying, “what is it” I think and that’s manifesting itself as, shit.

Yes, shit.

So, for the whole walk back from school this morning, and then the whole way back to school this afternoon, I had the words, “Willy!”and “Shit!” being shouted super loud by 2 toddlers for 20 minutes.

Ben, “where Willy gone?? Willy!! Willy!!”

Millie, “shit?” (Pointing) “shit?!” (More Pointing)

It’s like Toddler Tourettes…and I thought it was absolutely, bloody hilarious.




He really loves her…she’s playing hard to get. Girl after my own heart.

    Lol, it is so funny when toddlers mispronounce things and they sound really rude. Jessica had a similar case of toddler tourettes – she used to say “fug” instead of “frog” and that sounded very rude when shouted out! Thankfully she never said it at church! Thanks for linking up to #ftmob 🙂

    That is so hilarious – bless them. I’m not going into what mine used to call Makka Pakka (actually I did go into it once, but I won’t again. Let’s just say she was an accidental racist for a while & we did not leave the house). #ftmob
