The Mitchionary #2: Compound words

This goes with that... sort of...

One of the most exciting things about having a toddler is watching babbling become words, and then words become phrases. Below are just a few examples of what happens when a 23-month-old is given the tools of language without the instruction manual:

Turnover-toast - any piece of toast lying on a plate topping-side-down.

Make-a-wave - a kitchen appliance that uses invisible waves to heat food.

Pink-dick - a meal eaten outdoors, usually on a rug.

Hairy-daughter - a flying machine that uses rotating blades to acquire lift

Cuddle-milk - what baby sister Amelia's diet consists of.


  1. It's a nice day. Why don't you take your pink-dick bastard to the bitch?

  2. Cuddle- milk - that is the cutest....
    How goes it?
