The Kid Dictionary – A Book Review and Giveaway!

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.

I don’t know how she ever learned to say it! Lol!

  1. So many to choose from….right off the top of my head I’m gonna go with the day my daughter came home from pre-school and told me her teacher had a “mole-ckl” on her chin….had to ck it out the next day before I figured out she had combined “Mole” and “Freckle” to come up with her own word – “Molckle” – LOL

  3. My kids say hilarious things every day. Once my son told me to take a picture of him hitting a balloon while sticking his finger up his nose. Then he told me to send it to my brother because he thought it would be funny.

    He told me this week he was going to buy a motorhome when he grows up and live in my driveway. Every mom’s dream.

  4. We had a boy spending the night and he had a very loose tooth. I kept telling him to yank it out because I was afraid he would swallow it in his sleep. Later, all the boys were running around and the kid with loose tooth bonked his head. He was upset so I said ‘since you’re already in pain, yank your tooth out. You won’t even feel it.” my older son said “Mom, I really don’t see the humor in that.”

  5. With a 4 yr old, tons of stuff daily, but I love when she discovered who Frankenstein was at Universal Studios and when she came home from going with her dad, she couldn’t stop talking about Frankenstein’s “lavatory” all day, for days. “Mommy, do you know what’s in Frankenstein’s lavatory?!!” LOL!
