Lost in Pronunciation

In imaginary play, I noticed that various characters were being bequeathed the unsavory name of “Diarrhea”.

Me :: Let’s not talk about diarrhea.

Lia :: Why not?

Me :: Well, what is diarrhea?

Lia:  It’s poo-poo.

Me:  It’s not nice to talk about poo-poo.

Lia :: But Princess Diarrheas – we have that movie.

I ask you, what is a mother to say?  Haha.

This is just the most recent in many funny word confusions Lia has been using lately.  Yesterday, for example, we painted our nails with “polinai-ish”.  Would that be a spoonerism of nail polish?
