It was actually "fire truck" which sounded like "fire****. " We made her start saying "fire car" just until she could say truck but to this day everyone in the family still calls it a "fire car."

Believe it or not she said "all clean" when she 2 1/2 months old and she would say it after every diaper change and bath but she would never say it when I tried to show someone so nobody believes me.

"Fongool." I guess I said it way too much because I didn't want to say the other F-word in front of her and she picked that up instead.

"Shoes"—no joke. She is 2 now and that's still all she wants to play with! I may be in trouble during the teenage years! She would rather go to a shoe store than a toy store!

"S**t." Seriously, my last kid didn't say one word until she was about 16 months old. She made sounds but never an actual word. One day at Walmart, I dropped my purse and everything fell out and into a puddle. I muttered s**t to myself, but she said it just as loud and proud as she could. Then she continued to say it, to everyone for several weeks.
