A Summer Funny

I was thinking about times AJ has mispronounced something or used the wrong word with hilarious results, and this tale should not remain untold:

One day this summer Aaron had hurt his sciatic nerve (thigh/rear) so badly that he was sitting on a heating pad. Even though it was about 90 degrees and humid outside and thus 105 degrees in our upstairs office. So he took the unusual for him step of taking off his shirt.

AJ walked in, marched up to him, dropped whatever she was holding, put her hands on her hips, stared with her mouth wide open, and then admonished:


He looked at her. “What?”

She pointed at him. “PUH-WIV-A-CY!!!!”

When I collected myself, I clarified, “I think you mean modesty, honey.”

At least she is learning that concept!

What funny mix-ups have you heard?

  1. Ha! I was thinking of this when I was half awake this morning. It wasn’t really a mix up, just typical 4 year old. We were at the zoo one trip this summer and were watching the two lions. They were play fighting, up on their back legs pawing at each other. (male/female) Lots of parents and other pre-k’ers around, but my kid was the one to shout “LOOK MOM! I see the lion’s privates! Look! He has PRIVATES!”

    Geesh! :)
