Griff was such a character and many Kaufman words came about because of him. My favorite: Grumpus. That little dog had such mood swings and when they took a turn for the worse, we called it "grumpus."
Another Griffin favorite: Snugglepiggy. Griff had a pink stuffed pig he liked to snuggle. Still to this day Matt will say, "do you want to get snugglepiggy and watch a movie?'
M.E. gettin' snugglepiggy with BearBear.
Grumpus and snugglepiggy have even made there way into extended family. Even tough old papas say them around our house!
The word making fun only continued with our first child. We love the words she's come up with:
- All my byself (all by myself)
- Toast and turtle (toaster strudel)
- Somthing to zert (something for dessert)
- Mooches (kisses)
- Oooh Ahhhs (hugs)
- Hoostibill (hospital)
- Big girl cheese (grilled cheese)
- Ear Zachs (ear wax)
I walk Matt to the door everyday when he leaves for work and M.E. and Pax naturally follow. One day I said to Matt, "I love you and think you are handsome." Two year old M.E. quickly yelled out, "Love your pants off!"
Love your pants off, Matt!
To this very day, this is now how we say "I love you."
I love funny words.
Do you have a fun family word you have to share? Please do. And remember, I love your pants off!
