here are two more words you can add to your list:

When she was little, my daughter used to ask me if that was happening "nexterday." An awesome word, but I could never figure out if it meant yesterday or tomorrow?

As she got older, she started using the verb "scrumble" to describe the action of mixing something up. Scrumbling cake mix - or your hair in the shower. I know it's not a word, but it really should be.

I grew up in a sports family, but I LOVE words.

My two contributions. My two cents.

Love those, Beth. I have at least a 100-word darling malapropism glossary from my daughter's early childhood. E.g., a canker sore was a "sore crank." Once she told me, "Dad, this isn't my first rodeo. Wait. What is a rodeo?" Kids making up words is one of the special and unanticipated pleasures, for writer parents!
