Kids Abbreviations

This cracked me up so I just had to share.

So last Saturday the babes and I were out running errands and I was not planning on cooking dinner because we were so busy all day. So I asked my daughter to make me a short list of what her and my son wanted for dinner (even though I know what they like to eat from every restaurant we have ever been to). Here is the list I was given.


Jonesy (my daughter)
Kids ml, chikn, 6 pes, h20

Biggie (my son)
Kids ml, chikn, 6 pes, h2o
Spise chikn samin

So to translate:


6 piece chicken nugget Happy Meal with a water.

6 piece chicken nugget Happy Meal with a water.
Spicy chicken sandwich

So when I read the list my daughter had made, I cracked up laughing. So I asked her what was up with the spelling and grammar (as my babes are good with spelling and grammar unlike me) and she replied back, "well you asked for a short list, and I made a short list for you". I died laughing when she walked away. I am not sure if she knows what an abbreviation is, but this might be the first time I have ever seen her use abbreviation/short hand.


  1. I heart your kiddos. I liked it when they couldn't spell things so great and the list looked about the same - very few vowels!

  2. thats hilarious...

    sadly.. i understood exactly what they said.
