Children don't always learn what you want

Someone has not been watching his/her speech around this little girl.

It's clear she has some sense as to what the phrase means, but clearly she's got the words wrong. But she is treating this phrase as compositional (notice how she switches between "his" and "my").

One of my younger brothers went around for a couple months saying "ship" whenever anything bad happened. But unfortunately we don't have that on video.
