There are valuable lessons to be learned with every new stage of life, each one filled with wonder and excitement. The parenting stage deserves a special mention though, because the lessons just keep on coming—every day we learn something new from our kids.
This must have been what Eric Ruhalter, author of The KidDictionary, a book of words parents need but don’t have, was thinking. He took all of his valuable lessons and documented them into a (hilarious) new language.
Here’s a sample of what we mean.
ORTHODONTREPRENEUR (n): A child who is interested in knocking his own teeth out in the interest of a hefty payday from the Tooth Fairy.
GARBOFLAGE (v): To hide kids’ artwork under other trash in wastebasket so you don’t get caught chucking it.
SHIRTURBED (adj): Annoyed state of a child who just received an article of clothing as a present.
