The Lexicon of Tomato Green Minds

One thing that is awesome about Rants from MommyLand is the fact that so often, the comments are funnier than the actual posts.  We know what that says about us.  We thought we would ask you to contribute to the development of a new sort of dictionary (you know how we love our made-up words).  This dictionary is called "The Lexicon of Green Tomato Minds" and represents the words our children make up or get wrong and how these words are used. 

The Cap'n calls says our kids have "green tomato minds" because they're not ripe yet.  They have excellent brains, but they need to ripen in order to work properly.  If you need evidence of that, you can read some of the questions we're forced to ask them.  If you have children, you probably understand this very well already.  Though if I am any example of a red tomato mind... it may be time to make salsa.  Or ketchup.

Some examples for the lexicon:

Tardalard (noun): What you wear to gymnastics or ballet class.

Ho 'N' Tell (noun): Where you stay overnight when you go to your uncle's wedding.  Also, there's a lot of them by the beach near Grandma's house in Florida.

Pizzame (verb): What you yell at people when you're really mad.  When you yell this at someone, you're asking them if they want to fight.  Example: "OH YEAH?! YOU WANNA PIZZAME? CAUSE I'M RIGHT HERE!"  Also heard on the Jersey Shore.

Pussy (proper name): The green train engine who lives with Thomas on Sodor Island. I like to tell everyone I meet how much I love this.  Especially strangers in public places while using my outside voice.

Poopbrush (noun): The giant toothbrush looking thing that Mommy uses to clean out the potty.

Stomach Egg (noun): When your stomach really hurts, it's because of the stomach egg you have.

Man, Sure (noun): A man from France (and when you say this, you are speaking French, which is oh so fancy).

Condiments (noun): There are seven of them and we live on the one called North America.

Hey Dick (noun): When you bonk your head and it really hurts and you have to lie down, you have a hey dick.

Soil Milk (noun): It's milk that comes from dirt and not from cows and that's why you have to buy the vanilla kind or it tastes gross.

Sour Crap (noun): It's crap that they make sour in a factory and then grown-ups eat it on hot dogs and bratwurst.

We've lost more of these little terms and expressions in The Blur than we can ever remember, so we hope you can help us fill in some of the blanks. If you want to add your own awesomeness to this list, we'll be updating it all day.   If have you want to add a couple - email us at lydia.and.kate@rantsfrommommyland.com

  5. LOVE this post!
    We used to eat "Milky-aways" candy bars, I guess b/c they take Mommy away from the chaos for a moment. My son used to love to go to "Hamburger King" to get hamburgers, naturally, and although it wasn't a favorite place to go when the little tyke would say it, we'd go!

  9. A pinkink is, of course, a picnic. A kiss from Mama is a green kiss. A mo-mo is a lawn mower, a cuck is a truck; therefore a "mo-mo cuck" is a fire truck. A bus is always a "bus".See? Hadley

  13. My kids cannot get Marshmellows and Mushrooms straight... You think they would because they like one and not the other. But after a heavy rain we always see Marshmellows in the lawn and when we want a snack we would like Mushrooms with our raisins...

    Mrs. Glasses' cookies = Molasses cookies; my kids love these however when they ask for them from anyone else but me they get a blank stare... maybe it is because we don't know a Mrs. Glasses.

  28. Here, a hog gog is a great breakfast lunch or dinner (hot dog), there's beck-fest, which is not a festival celebrating Beck (beer or singer, take your pick) but what we eat when we wake mama up at 5:34. She loves to be worn on my back in her "packy" (baby carrier) and any time she'd like me to accompany her, it's "NOWCOMING!"
    Completely un-related, but this week at dinner with her grandparents she couldn't get a shape sorter toy to work, so she kept saying "Not working now" which to their ears was "I'm working here" - completely hilarious to them. I didn't have the heart to correct them.

  29. Oh let's see. My 5 yo son loves to name cars, but instead of Rendezvous he says Davey Ronda.

    One night, my husband and I were following each other home, the kids were in my car with me. We were 'racing' and Daddy beat us home. The next day in the checkout line at WalMart my then 4yo daughter said "Remember last night when Daddy beat us?"

    And finally, again in the checkout line, right next to a display of farm-animal shaped lolipops, my children so sweetly informed me that a rooster is also called a cock. Unfortunately, it wasn't nearly as clear as that. Both my children, 7 and 5, said in perfect unison, "Look Mom! A cock sucker!"

    Game over, I win. Or lose, same difference.

But our favorite, which she has still not grown completely out of, is that she calls triangles "tri-a-giggles". These are all great!

  58. When my niece was little, she referred to anything chocolate as "Cock." So here's my SIL was hugely pregnant with my nephew (my niece was 2) in the middle of Target and niece starts screaming at the top of her lungs, "I want COCK, I want COCK, Give me COCK." SIL didn't even try to hush her - she merely sat down in the middle of the aisle and started laughing...she figured she made all the other customers day...

  71. My favorite was from before ours was one. She wanted so badly to talk that she said "I uh U!!!" With strong emphasis on each syllable, for clarity, I guess? I occasionally tell her I love her that way because it makes me smile.
    Bahwah was grandma for a while, and then at the prompting of my family, just to tick me off, she'd call me Bah and laugh and laugh. I did not.

    I wish I had more, but she was a crazy perfectionist who wanted to say things just like us...SIGH, she still is.

  72. My 3 yr old is also a fan of "Pussy". He announced at his birthday party in April to our friends that "I just loooooove Pussy".

  103. These are great!
    My (then 2 year old) daughter told me that she wanted 'sh'door da dar dee dee' for lunch. I aked her several more times and kept getting the same answer. Finally I said: 'Um...do we HAVE that?' And she vigorously nodded her head in the affirmative. 'Can you show me where it is?' Another 'yes'. She led me to the kitchen and pointed to the ravioli. The CHEF BOYARDEE ravioli. You know Chef Boyardee...aka Sh'door da dar dee dee

Also can be used to describe the ring-master of a circus. Two of her favorite dolls were a bride and groom set of Madame Alexander dolls, who she lovingly called "the Show-mer and his wife Alice." LOVE my kiddo! :-)

  132. I'm a little late to the party, but my son used to say "bips" for chips, "nuggle" for snuggle, "slip-slops" for flip-flops, and "stabetti" for spaghetti. He's just recently grown out of "slip-slops"... I let him say it for 3 years without correcting him, because it was just too damn cute. But one day, he started saying it correctly on his own, and I could have cried. :(
