Only I can understand my kid. She's like "HAJKFHJCSJVBSHDJWAHGLKHN" and I'm like"OK I will get you a piece of sausage in just a minute."

Makes me feel a bit better about finding kids utterly incomprehensible.

Same I'm constantly corrected by my gf and her family for misunderstanding her(soon our) niece and nephew. Luckily the kids have no problem reiterating and rephrasing until I get it which is probably good for all of us in the long run

Ya it always weird meeting a kid and they say something to you and you have zero fucking idea what they just said. So you play it off like you understood and "ya that's cool".

I always tell people not to feel bad if they don't understand my toddler. Hell sometimes I can't understand her.

Old people too. Half the people in nursing homes are exactly like this.

I can’t understand my nieces and nephews but my brother and his wife know exactly what they are trying to say.

This is so true I have a brother who is like 15 years younger than me and when he was a toddler I couldn’t understand a word he said but my mum understood perfectly.

I had this except I could and she couldn’t with my brother 7 year gap. “Sock me” he wants his socks on and that was when he made some sense

I believe it stemmed from ‘feed me’ got him fed therefore ‘sock me’ ‘water me’ seemed so logical to me. He didn’t get what was so funny.
我觉得他认为这句话和“喂我（feed me）是”一样的，所以“袜子我”、“水我（water me）”在他看来是一个逻辑。他没意识到这多有意思。

A couple more years and he'll figure out 'beer me' and then it's all downhill

It takes time. I was adopted by friends. My niece was two when I met her. Took me weeks for my brain to start interpreting her toddler accent.
When her brother started talking I understood him perfectly.
Different toddlers still take time but it dépens on how heavy their toddler accent is.
It's really fuckin weird.

I get you. I have three younger siblings and one of them still talks in a weird way and I’m basically the one translating all the time.
