Fire truck pronunciation help 🥲

My little boy has gotten really into fire trucks recently, but he calls them “fuck”s 🤣 it was funny at first lol but we live near a fire station and every time we walk past it or see a fire engine he starts yelling fuck 🫣 he can say truck/fire truck and we correct him every time he says it but he genuinely will not stop saying it!! And I can’t keep trying to explain to people on the street that he hasn’t got a potty mouth, he’s just confused 🥲

Amazing 😂😂😂

I wouldn’t worry about it, it will pass 😂 and I wouldn’t bother explaining it either x

My Boy is the same with Fox … he calles it Fuck 🫣. I keep correcting him hopefully he’ll stop saying it.🥲

@Mel s I feel like I’ve encouraged it because it cracks me up every time 😂

@Claire I hope it passes 😂 x

@Peruth glad it’s not just us 😂😂

I agree with Claire - I wouldn’t worry too much. I would just continue to correctly pronounce the word to encourage the correct way of saying it ☺️ If it helps, we call fire/police/ambulance all “nee-nors” - or you could try “fire engine” instead of “truck” ☺️ xx

@Becky thank you!! He does call his big fire engine toy a ‘beep beep’ for some reason so I’ve been trying to encourage that! But a month in and that hasn’t stuck yet 😅 xx

Haha! You’ll miss it when he starts calling them ‘trucks’. My little girl says ‘nobsters’ instead of ‘lobsters’ 🤣

My son's still non verbal and honestly if his first word was f**k or he decided to call me twat instead of mummy, I'd still be absolutely ecstatic 😂❤️

My LO loves animals and can make most of the sounds they make but when it comes to pigs she says “pigs go wank wank” REALLY LOUDLY! And apparently vegetables are “wash your balls” which the also said loudly in a restaurant! She’ll grow out of it so we’re not worried!

@Charlie 😂😂😂

We used to have orange pronounced “a minge”🫠

😂😂 this post has really made me giggle! One of my friends little girls really likes to watch stick man but she calls it dick man and it kills me off every time! 😂

My daughter used to call Playdoh…Pedo. I avoided that aisle for a long time in toy shops!

@Laura Hughes-McCarthy that’s cracked me up 🤣

@Gemma that would get me too 😂 I actually said to my partner not long before the ‘fuck’ fiasco that I can’t wait until he says something like that 🤭 immature mum alert

@Charlie 🤣
