One of the absolute best things about being a parent is being witness to some of the darndest things kids say and do. It’s like kids were specially programmed from God to be funny on purpose to make our jobs as moms less stressful and more fun. Their innocent, unbiased view of the world and the way things work is just honestly so much fun to experience with them. Thankfully, there isn’t a day that goes by that my kid doesn’t say or do something completely off the wall that manages to always keep me on my toes and laughing. From the funny way he pronounces words (Disgusting=Shishgushing) to the way he brushes his teeth (it’s a sight only a mother could love).
Thanks to Eric Ruhalter (well, really to Eric’s 3 kids), and his new book “The Kid Dictionary” is a handy guide of useful terms for the everyday weirdnesses that children do. Well, not to forget the completely frustrating and hair pulling things that kids do too, those special circumstances require a funny word as well, if only to help us moms stop crying. This book is not for kids or written by kids, this book is for us adults to get a chuckle out of raising and being around children. For example:
“Toyphoon” (noun) Kids routine play activities that leave the playroom looking like it was decimated by a hurricane.
or my favorite:
“Nutler” (noun) A clumsy mobile toddler whose head is about the height of the average adult male crotch.

We were trying to teach 2 year old Jamie how to say her name so we broke it down.
Daddy: Say “Jay”.
Daddy: Say “Me”.
I don’t know how she ever learned to say it! Lol!
