memorable verbal family blunders

My kids have been pestering me to log all of their funny little sayings and doings before we all grow up and forget them. I think it's a great idea, but the idea of putting them onto a file on my computer, only to be lost and forgotten about, devastates me. So, pardon the tangent and enjoy some of my family's oddities.

"Napkins Farms": Noe's way of saying "Atkins Farms"

"Heliclopters": Jordy's term for the cool little spinning seed pods that come down from our backyard Maple.

"Goblets": Noe's way of saying "goblins" (after watching Labyrinth with me and Jordy).

"Bookmoork": Jordy made a bookmark by hand back in kindergarten and added an extra O. Now we all call 'em bookmoorks.

From the "taking me too literally" department:

Noe (in the car): "Dad, look at me!"
Me: "I can't, I'm driving, I have to keep my eyes on the road."
Noe: "If you keep your eyes on the road, a car will come by and squish them!"
