All About MEme: WORD!

with MommyBrain and SupahMommy


inspired by our friend Shell

and a funny story that MommyBrain can't wait to tell :)

What is YOUR WORD?

a WORD or CATCH PHRASE that you made up 

or stole borrowed 

or adapted or whatever

a WORD or CATCH PHRASE that you say all the time, 

use in an unusual way, 

makes you laugh  or feel clever.

a WORD or CATCH PHRASE that you've redefined

or that has come to mean something different 

because of your kids or your job


You've arrived at the "C" section of the MommyBrain New Word Dictionary ...

Chottie - [cha-tee] - noun - origin: dorm room, the college years
1. female body part; area covered by your danties
2. roommate, friend

My chotties took me out to a local bar for my first PCCC (Post Chottie Check Celebration).  *Chottie Check refers to an exam in which a doctor (or nurse practitioner) takes a peek under the hood.

La-tee-da-tee, we likes to party.  Leave a message for your favorite chottie. *True story --> We recorded that as our answering machine message!

After giving birth, my chottie was all yottie-yottie. *If you gave birth naturally, you know what I'm saying!

I have no idea how this got started.  Nor do I know why it can be used in such a varied way.  But I do know that my college friends (my chotties) and I still use it today.

Crack-ccess - [krak-ses′] - noun - origin: bathroom while bathing toddler
1. the privilege of gaining access to a butt crack for cleaning purposes

While changing a poopy diaper, momma needs a little crack-ccess to make sure there aren't any stinky remnants.

During bath time, I have to ask my daughter for crack-ccess, and use the wash cloth to clean those stinky creases!

CUD - [kud] - abbr. Clean Up Duty - origin: early married life
1. responsibility for cleaning up the kitchen after dinner has been prepared and eaten.

If I make dinner, my husband does CUD.  *That's how we roll up in har!

This has been a sampling of words I've made up or used for a new purpose.  Making up words is a habit of mine, and I am so looking forward to gaining a few new ones during this week's MEme!
