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!

"Why is that lady wearing a balloon?"
Um no sweetie, that's just a puffy jacket. But Cocktaildeeva mama was actually thinking the same thing - it just would have sounded rude if it had come out of her mouth. Funny how 3 year olds can get away with that kind of stuff and people think it's kind of cute or funny but if we, as adults, were to say the same thing we'd probably get slapped. Here's what she had to say: "...he's 3..she was wearing a REALLY puffy coat that IS cute on 3 year olds but not on adults...and he just blurted it out. We were at the grocery store. I just love how they see the world. He said exactly what I was thinking." Hmm, a balloon, that seems pretty accurate...
