Last week or the week before – who can remember? – I brought you words that should never, under any circumstance be words. But I’m no radical extremist. I can appreciate a new word or portmanteau (come back next week to find out what portmanteau is) every now and then. If it’s a good one, and I shall decide if it’s a good one or not thank you very much. Why doesn’t Webster’s consult me?
So today I bring you more words that should be words based on my highly unscientific methodology: I like em.
Because it’s so darn cute. I don’t care if the speech therapist has to work double time to get this kid to speak properly. And Crazy has a point. “Evenly” should be a word meaning actually or even though evenly if it’s not. It just sounds right. My kid is a genius! A genius, I tell you!
Crazy also likes to say “more differenter.” And that, too, makes sense when you think about it. For example, “His picture looked more differenter than the one he drew yesterday. Or, “Mom, your hair looks more differenter today.” Or, “Mom, you look more differenter when you are dressed instead of in your pajamas.”
Eventually, I get it worked out, though.
Crazy has also been know to say “by accidentally” quite frequently, and alternately, “by purpose.” And, I’m not correcting him. He can say that until the day he goes to college and someone makes fun of him. I don’t care. It’s too cute.
What words do your kids say that are too cute you refuse to correct them?
Like this? Find even funnier stuff in I STILL JUST WANT TO PEE ALONE, the third installment in The New York Times best-selling series from some of the funniest women on the web. What I’m trying to say is, I’m in this book. Buy it, ok? Available on Amazon, Kindle, iTunes and Barnes and Noble. I will love you forever.
