Toddler vs Mother - Funny translations to english

We speak Marathi at home and English in school. So relating the marathi words to english words is always funny.

Today Aarav was reading 'The Ugly Duckling' and suddenly as the ducklings were being bad to the ugly one, Aarav had an eureka moment.

Aarav, "Aai"
Me, "yes?"
Aarav, "he 'Duckling' mhanje Pushing ka??"

I explained it is not the same but after a large fit of giggles.

In marathi, 'dhakal' means to push and the pronunciation is very close to 'Duckle'. Typical english verb form, like sitting, playing, eating became Duckling.

Lol.lol lol. I am still laughing!!

Happiness is??
Ducklings of joy!!!
