Oh jeepers, I was on my knees with laughter over my son’s latest word wobble.. He was reading a recipe and said “Mum, can you make me a salmon and spinach quinchy”. I was puzzled for a sec, and realised he meant quiche…. Still makes me laugh from my belly… Nick is 23yo and has a form of autism, so has a few word wobbles. This is a classic one, worthy of sharing LOL. He laughed with me, and now, it is family folklore, a quiche from this day forward will be called a ‘quinchy’…
I would love to hear your funny family word wobbles that have changed the way you say things. Oh, another one for us, is my brother used to call sandwiches ‘dans’ – 40 years later, we still call a sanger a ‘dan’ in our family…….

  • My son got home from school one day and explained the reason why the bus was late. The bus got stuck in a ‘jam pot’. Meaning a traffic jam. Makes me laugh so much


  • My son recently told me his friend at school’s mum was a midwife, and asked what that was. I responded that it was someone who delivered babies. He actually thought his friends mother physically delivered her own babies for a living, of course I explained that this was not th case.


  • thanks all – humour is our crutch – most days we laugh from our bellies x


  • I love the expression “word wobbles”. We all wobble sometimes!
