Fun Monday-Weird Family Speak


Nikki from My Husband Calls Me Weird is this week's hostess with the mostest.  She would like to hear/see our weird family speak creations.  I have a few I could post about so I thought I would join the party this week.
We actually have lots of made-up words.  For right now, I will tell you two.  My youngest daughter when she was very little would walk around and say, "Will a basket do?"  It was the cutest thing I ever heard.  So whenever people are searching for things that is the line we give them.  It took me a while to figure out where this came from.  We used to watch Disney's Cinderella continually and I believe the mice ask this question.
  Another quotation from the same little daughter was "monsteryier hugs."  She used to give and recieve these kind of hugs from her daddy.  Ah, so precious!  We still give them.  
  I am truly a mastermind of made-up words but I don't want to overwhelm you.  
I left one very funny word my oldest daughter spoke when she was two years old.  We used to go eat at a Casa Bonita quite often.  She always ordered "cheese hyenas" that's what she called cheese enchiladas.  So we still refer to them as cheese hyenas now.  
Oh my gosh, I thought of something else that my oldest daughter used to say.  She was about 1-1/2 years old and became afraid for some reason to go into our bedroom.  We would tell her that nobody is going to get you.  So she kept saying "Nobody's  going to get me."  It took us awhile (not being too brilliant apparently) that she thought "nobody" was "somebody that was going to get her."  That took some explaining.  
Happy St. Patrick's Day to all!  Go Green.

Love the 'monsteryier' hugs I could do with a few of those!

Well, yours are adorable! You're like me if you make tons of made-up words...mine just don't catch on usually.

I think I've been giving "monsteryier hugs" all my life but I didn't know they had a name :). Thanks for clearing that up!

Poor baby - afraid of nobody! and cheese hyenas? Perfect. My grandson orders pterodactyl at our local oriental restaurant (chicken satay to the rest of us).

Great job.

All so cute and sweet and funny!!! I wish I could remember more from my boys, I know they had loads of their own words but I can't seem to remember any. :(
