Indeed! Here why has turned into 'but why?' which is even more annoying for some reason!!

Couldn't have put it better. We have just hit the why stage and it is driving me nuts.

Today's word is Maori. As in "Daddy, what's maori mean?"
Cue DH giving great big anthropology lecture about who Maoris are, where they live, who we know with Maori ancestry etc etc.

Ooh, I remembered two more, slightly cuter and less annoying, words-of-the-day. We don't often get mispronounciations anymore so I am clinging onto:

"Par-cark" - Car-park
"Meeholes" - Molehills.

He can say "molehills" properly if he's reminded but I like "meeholes" better anyway! :D :D

These just get funnier! We had some "pasghetti" the other day, which made me think of this thread :)
Mouse also uses words in funny contexts as he's experimenting with vocab. Like my cheese sauce yesterday was "very kind" (presumably he's realised it's a term of praise but not why). And his toy cars had been "responsible" (they'd been jumping off cliffs, I have no idea what he meant to say there!).

DD's latest - butterpillar instead of caterpillar. I love that! it's so cute. I can see where she's coming from though seeing as it becomes a butterfly not a caterfly!

Bear's just learned that orange jam is marmalade, so when she saw the mermaids and the elephant on Show Me Show Me she said they were 'mermalades' :)

WTBAB - I learnt from an episode of come outside that the word marmalade originates from the fact that it was used as a seasickness remedy on long voyages and comes from the french "mer malade" as in sea sickness. Perhaps she has been brushing up on her history!

Love mermalades though!

Having done a bit of research I have now learned that this is probably unlikely to be the actual root of the word, as is the variation on the story that it was given to mary queen of scots as a remedy for sickness (marie malade) but that in fact it most likely comes from the spanish word for quince, marmelo, which is what marmalade was originally made from. I still like the seasickness version best though :D
