5 Minutes for Mom is having a HUGE party this year – and everyone has the chance to win!! There will be TONS of giveaways, and this post is my participation in it! So be sure to enter my giveaway by commenting on this post, and then go check out everyone else’s at 5 Minutes for Mom!
If you’ve been hanging around here for any amount of time, you all know that my goal is to try and have an “entertaining“, or even “humorous” (on a good day) blog. And I also like big words. And teaching them to my two year old.
Well, Eric Ruhalter wrote a perfect book for me!! It combines big words WITH humor. Only they’re better than regular ole’ big words, because they’re MADE UP big words! The book is “The Kid Dictionary: A Book of Words that Parents Need But Don’t Have.” He creates awesome words such as:
WHYAHRHEA (WHY-uh-REE-uh) n: An inquisitive toddler’s chain of questions rattled off in rapid-fire succession.
BROFITTI (bro-FEE-tee) v: To scribble with permanent magic marker on the face of a younger sibling.
INVISIBOOBOO (in-VIZ-uh-boo-boo) n: – The site on a child’s body where you unnecessarily applied a Band-Aid to appease them when they got hurt, though did not bleed.
THREEMAGEDDON (three-muh-GED-in)-n.: The supposed hellfire and brimstone that would erupt should an annoyed mother reach the third digit while counting aloud to 3 to get a non-compliant child to get his act together.. “ONE !….TWOOOOOOO !!!!….. “
SNOOT (SNEWT) v: To suck in rather than to blow out when blowing your nose (Ali STILL does this EVERY time I try and get her to blow her nose!!).
REGURGITIGHTEN (re-GUHR-jih-tie-tuhn) v: To brace yourself upon ascertaining that your ill child is about to barf on you.
This book is full of priceless and hilarious words that will really help you see the bright side of some possibly not-so-bright parenting moments.
