The Lexicon - Final Installment

We just couldn't NOT include the newest arrivals. And, by *newest* we mean the ones that got all captured by our Spam Filter, who's really a bastard about that kind of stuff.

As always, here are Parts One, Two, Three, Four and Five. And, we're tasking ourselves with compiling them all and putting them together into the KDR (KidLand Desk Reference) to go with the MDR. We plan to have it done by the end of the week, which means it might get done by Christmas. Unless Kate puts it on her Tuesday List...then it'll totally happen.

Unless Lydia dares her to fix her drippy kitchen sink. Which DID happen. Lydia is writing all about it. It basically boils down to these important points: Kate is super handy with tools, Kate is awesome. Kate didn't get a weird haircut. You'll have to wait and find out if the sink is still drippy. Which is also totally possible.


Monkey Nuts: (verb): act of standing at the kitchen island putting a sandwich, fruit and chips into a bag for work, to be eaten during the midday hour; in the human world, known as "making lunch"

Bowl in a China Closet: (phrase) Doesn’t quite have the same affect as a bull, because, you know… a bowl would just sit on the shelf.

Brownie Alamo: (dessert) thick dark chocolate treat topped with ice cream and whip cream; a treat most often remembered.

Pain in the Ask: (pronoun) variation on the given name of a parental figure, predominantly "dad" What my 2 year old answered when asked what her daddy's name was. Probably a parenting FAIL but funny as hell!

  1. To go along with Chicafatumus, my son was looking at a dinosaur book with his daddy tonight and said he was looking for the Rhinototops...apparently a Triceratops.

  2. BWAHAHAHAHAHA! (Think I'll teach my daughter to say all these word this way instead of the correct way. It's just too funny not to.)

  3. Omg at Mr. Boner.

    Thought of a few more today too -
    Damnupt! = stand up
    Shit mound = sit down
    Popinmouth = popcorn. because you pop it in your mouth.

  4. I know this is the final installment, but I just have to share: This afternoon my daughter was excited to make Rice Krispie treats using Soup Loops instead (side note - DELICIOUS). FYI, Soup Loops = Fruit Loops

  5. Don't forget "percoleeze" (Hercules in our house...)

  6. I am not sure this counts but I have to share.....

    Back when my daughter was only 3 we were driving by an airstrip and discussing how people who drove planes were called pilots. She pipes up.... "Ohhhh.... and people who drive cars are called idiots, right mom?"

    Yes, my dear..... they are.......

  7. We went this weekend to watch a bunch of shortfilms my husband and his friends have made and suddenly in the dark movie theatre my son shouts "I need more porncorn"

  8. I can't believe I forgot this girlfriends little girl calls her lady parts "Fine China". Don't even get me started on the "hand wash only" jokes we were cracking.

  9. Love it!

    Our 3yr olds favorite character from Shrek 2 is Poots N Toots (Puss in Boots). :)

  10. My son called Oatmeal "Mo-kee-oh" and he would point in the pantry and say mokeeoh over and over, I had to take things out one item at a time until we reached the conclusion that he meant Oatmeal. Fun times.

    He also says discs as "dicks" giggle giggle

    @ Buckman: "Fine China" effing hiliarous!!!

  12. My 4 year old says "lasterday" as in, any day prior to today. Might be yesterday, might be last year.

    My 2 year old says "ho-E-tell" for hotel

    And both of them say "cause-be" instead of because

  13. LOL, I thought our son was the only one that said "meat-mo" for oatmeal! Here are a couple other family favorites:

    Noonies (noun): any kind of cooked pasta
