Ism of the Week

Don't you just love it when your child learns a new word?

"Mommy, what does 'awkward' mean?"

"'Awkward' is when something is weird or uncomfortable.  Not just a feeling, but sometimes a situation."

"A sitation?"

"Situation.  What's happening to you.  Maybe something weird happens and you don't know what to say.  That can be 'awkward'."

"Oh, okay."

"Do you understand now?" 

"Yeah.  Awkward.  Like your hair.  Right, Mommy?"

"Hey!  That's not nice."

"But Mommy, you said 'when something is weird'."

Now THIS is awkward...


  1. I'm laughing out loud over here. Gotta love how honest kids are!!!

  2. Oh yes... and Cael is the most honest of them all!


Leave your own "ism". Cael and Graham double-dog dare you.
