Welcome to Mommy (and Daddy) Lingo!

Hi and thanks for visiting this site. As a mother of 3 I've said some pretty odd stuff over these past 10 years and thought it would be fun to write a bunch of them down.

And now, with the encouragement of my brother, I'd like to share some of these unconventional, yet practical, phrases. Enjoy!

"No...that's not the pig's butt."

This was the reply my friend gave to his 3 year old daughter the other day when they went to the fair. They were admiring the animals when they came across a pig who was turned around. The little cutie paused a second, then excitedly announced, "That pig has a little butt under its big butt!" Well, this story was funny to us in and of itself, but our dad friend went on to tell us a related story about his sweet girl and her 'announcements.' Apparently, the other day she came running over to him, semi-crying, stating that her sister had just kicked her in her little butt and that it hurt. He, in turn, paused and thought about what she had just said. 'Little butt?' This was a new and unfamiliar phrase for him. She reiterated, made a telling gesture, and he immediately understood. 'Oh,' he said, suppressing his laughter, 'I'm sorry.' And quickly walked away to tell his wife.
