Come again?!?!?!

Has anyone ever heard of or come across a children’s/toddlers TV programme called ‘Zack and Quack’?

No? Well, I hadn’t done either.

So please imagine my surprise last week, when my three year old comes dancing merrily past me in the kitchen singing….

……..’sack and crack, sack and crack’, in her innocently angelic little voice!!!!!!

Completely stunned and alarmed all at once!!

So much so, that the piping hot pasta bake I had just fetched from the cooker nearly flew from my oven-gloved grasp, scattering tuna and sweet corn all over the floor!

“Um, Holly. Tell mummy what you just said again. I didn’t quite catch that”

“Sack and crack, sack and crack” she sang again.

So that’s where I left that conversation!!!

And it wasn’t until a couple of days later, (having retold the story to each of my friends with complete amusement) that I caught the back end of an advert for ‘Zack and Quack’, a new children’s television programme to feature in the scheduling for Nick Jnr.


Love her!!

    Haha that made me laugh. I remember when my eldest was 1, he used to wander around the house saying “buddha, buddha”. I thought it unlikely a toddler would be trying to find nirvana but took me ages to work out what he meant. Turned out he was trying to say “better” and that meant he wanted his dummy because I’d say “is that better?” after giving it to him. Took me months to work that out!

    That’s so funny! Love it and, let’s face it, it’s an easy mistake to make Hee Hee xx

    Haha! Brilliant! They will forever be known as Sack and Crack to me now!
    Reminds me of when my friends son told her that he thought the fact they had “matching buttocks” was cute! After a bit of questioning we found out he actually meant dimples!

    This is just brilliant!! They should do a ‘Sack and Crack’ parody for adults where they rip strips of paper hair off Zack’s paper bottom! (So hoping I’ve not got my kid’s tv programs mixed up!!) ?

    I love these little slip ups! For ages (and we still don’t know why) Little P used to call cornflakes ‘fuckins’. Very embarrassing when we saw our in-laws out for breakfast with some of their church friends and Nanny asked her what she had eaten for breakfast…

    Haha! Glad its not just my children then. Whenever my 3 year old son tries to say stuck we have issues, there was a particular bus incident when he was shouting his ‘version’ over and over again just after announcing loudly that we were going to the pub … It was 9.30 AM. We were not.
