Moms (and parents in general) tend to have a language of their own when it comes to raising kids. Inspired by ParentsConnect, here are five "momfinitions" that I believe pertain to the highs and lows that are involved in the wonderful world of parenting!
Goopies [goo-pees]noun: the icky little green things that show up in the corner of your eyes. Hold still, you have eye goopies.
Cranktastic [krank-ta-stik] adjective: the way my daughter gets when she hasn't had a nap and starts to cry or get irritable for no reason whatsoever. Your cranktastic attitude is telling me that it's gonna be an early bedtime tonight!
Pooplosion [poo-plo-shun] noun: when your child's poop fills up the diaper and their back... and their clothes... and the floor... Time to start another load of laundry, we've just had a pooplosion!
pacitastrophe [pass-e-tas-tro-fee] noun: The panicky moment of horror when your infant/toddler is screaming and you realize there is no pacifier in the diaperbag or the vicinity. Usually occurs in public places or in the car. I'm sorry, I have to excuse myself and drive to the nearest WalMart because we are having a major pacitastrophe!
Law of Two [la- uv- too] noun: The law in life that says if you have two children that they can't be good at the same time. One always has to be crying, mad or throwing a fit of some sort. Those rare moments when they are both being good are when you break out the camera in order to show people that your kids just defied nature! (on the phone) Oh, she's crying because her brother is not- it's the law of two!
I would love to hear your reaction to my momfinitions! Do you know what I'm talking about? Do you have any momfinitions of your own? If you found mine interesting, you should definitely check out the ones at ParentsConnect!
