And right away, I can tell you that my favorite words aren’t actually words at all.
- Lasterday – my all time favorite! My four year old daughter continues to use this word to refer to what is commonly known as “yesterday”. Do I correct her? Absolutely not! She can call it Lasterday as long as she wants and the day she says “yesterday” will be a sad one, indeed!
- Colorayons – same as lasterday, except this one refers to crayons.
- Dora Ek the Splorer – Explorer is a hard word, and Ek the Splorer is so much more unique.
- Lellow – this one is from years past. My second son said this in place of yellow until my oldest son set him straight.
- Aye – my oldest son said this instead of “yes”. Other people had some difficulty figuring this one out but we knew exactly what it meant.
What do these words tell you about me?
You could determine that my kids are a big part of my life and I cherish their childhood that is passing too quickly (and sometimes not fast enough). My favorite words don’t show you my incredibly practical side but rather a sentimental side that most people don’t see.
Is being a mom the most important thing in my life?
Isabella has turned this question into a meme – here are the rules:
- what are your favourite words, and why?
- what does that tell us about you?
- write about it on your blog and invite other bloggers to write about it.
- link back to this blog (change therapy at http://moritherapy.org) and i’ll
- gather the words and contributors in a list and publish it
- stumble your “favourite word” post (as long as they meet my stumble criteria, which shouldn’t be difficult with a post like this)
Anyone is free to participate. But I will tag a few that may be interested.
- Aruni at entrepreMusings
- Suzy at SavvySuzy (who recently “tagged” me)
- Michelle at Lady Language (who “tagged” me ages ago – I haven’t forgotten!)
Isabella hasn’t posted a deadline on her meme but since she will be posting a list of all the contributers, I would imagine participating sooner is better than later.
