Word Up - It's Time to Get Wordy!

Word of the Day
I really do not know that anything has ever been more exciting than diagramming sentences. Gertrude Stein

Sugarhead, The Entertainer

Sugarhead uses half words, which I cannot get my fill of. For instance, she'll say she wants to watch teev, or she wants to go to the lib (long i). That apple didn't fall far from the Let's Talk Ghetto tree.

She also loves long walks on the beach and spends her free time making up words.

My most recent favorite came last night after bath time. Let me illustrate.

"Look, Mama, look! Look at my fingers", she exclaims, spreading her little hands open for investigation. "They're all cruffled."

Cruffled -
to soak, fill, or saturate with water so as to make soggy

synonyms: water logged, prune hands

She doesn't mean to be so entertaining. She just is.

{You can't have her. She's all mine.}

Words to be treasured, for sure.

Oh Jodie, this put me in a better mood! If she were mine I wouldn't share her either! You should submit "Cruffled" to Webster's Dictionary. They add words every so often, and I don't think this one in in there yet.

I'd love to borrow her for just a day - I can't imagine how much I'd laugh. Not to mention that she could play princessy things with Savannah.

Jodie, Audrey had the throw ups AGAIN last week and she said her "teeth is sick".
