What Is Your Child’s Favourite Word?

My daughter is obsessed with two words these days – saliver (saliva) and disgusting…

Every time we go out to eat, a version of the following conversation takes place…

Daughter: “Maa, please don’t drink from my glass…It is DISGUSTING!!!! Your saliver is all over my glass…”

Me: “But, I didn’t use your straw and anyway, you can’t finish the drink…BTW, it’s not ‘saliver’ but ‘saliva’…”

Daughter: Whatever…It’s stillย DISGUSTING!!!


Daughter is blowing aย balloonย in the playground…A friend comes up and asks if she can try…Daughter says, “My mother told me not to mix salivers…It’s disgusting…”


Daughter: “Maa, there’s a lizard on the wall…It’s tail is moving…It’s so DISGUSTING!!!


Paloma told me that when people get married, they kiss on the lips…YUCK!!! The saliver mixing…DISGUSTING!!! I’ll never get married!

  1. LOL! That was so cute!

    Poohi has not got obsessed with words, although she is obsessed with her newly acquired Yorkshire accent, which let me tell you is horrendous! I shudder everytime she speaks with it.

    She calls Saliva – mouth slime – although where she caught it from , is beyond me ๐Ÿ™‚

    Me: M goes to an international school and has acquired a weird accent…I think it’s a mixture of Danish/Swedish/NZ/Israeli/Indian and is horrendous…


  2. Back here after a long break….the header pic is so pretty. ๐Ÿ™‚

    LOL @ this post !!! The obsession with new words is sometimes so funny, as they stress on that word so much.

    It was AWEZZZOME, for my daughter for sometime…and she used to give her likes and dislikes using that word !!! So much that my SIL got her a T-shirt with that word on it. ๐Ÿ™‚


  3. Ha ha ha …… a combination of Danish/Swedish/Israeli/NZ/Indian does sound complicated, but when does she add Chinese to this concoction? “It’s saliver, la? So disgusting, la!”


    Quirky Indian

    Me: She does some time use lah but more to bug me…She’ll be learning Mandarin next year so I’ll have to wait and see…


  4. LOL Sraboney kids find ‘saliver’ very fascinatingly ‘disgusting’ ๐Ÿ™‚ Burping and farting are even more fascinatingly ‘disgusting’. ๐Ÿ˜†

    Me: I think boys find burping and farting more fascinatingly disgusting…


  5. Lol !! ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€

    that was most amusing actually !!!! ๐Ÿ™‚ not at all Disgusting !!! ๐Ÿ˜€

    My son’s favourite word these days is Armageddon !!! this silly computer game that has me my brother and my son hoooked to it !!! ๐Ÿ˜
