25 Hilarious Words About Kids You Need to Know

By julieminer |

But why, Mommy? WHY? Why?!

Eric Ruhalter is the brains behind The KidDictionary. A hilarious website that’s a collection of words created to describe kids, parenting and the craziness of family life. The KidDictionary is also about to be a book and will hit shelves in two weeks.

Eric, a husband and father of three, has long described himself as a ““Lexiconnoisseur” which he told me means “lover of words”. Then he said:

“Actually “Lexiconnoisseur ” doesn’t mean “a lover of words.” In fact, it doesn’t mean anything. But it should. Which is exactly the point of this book, The KidDictionary. People who have children in their lives to any degree have a profound need for many words that are not currently found in the dictionary.”

These words are funny, clever and so flipping perfect that I can’t wait to buy his book. Don’t believe me? Look at these:

The Kid Dictionary's Hilarious Made-up Words


My sons have a mutual ambition: The desire to beat one another to a pulp. It’s how they like to spend their time. One of the most commonly heard phrases in my house is “Keep your hands to yourself.” But there’s always a loophole.

    A joke told by a 4 year old I was babysitting:
    “knock knock!”
    “who’s there?”
    “sweater who?”
    “sweater and a hat!”

    Unfortunately I don’t think I helped his developing sense of humor since I LOST IT at his hilariously unfunny joke.

  2. Chrissy says:

    Love the kid dictionary idea. I stumbled across it on Twitter and havent stopped laughing since! It’s actually true any parents life. The funniest part is talking to other parents and using one of the words and sounding like you’re the smartest person in the world. (I explain where I got them :) )

  3. Laura says:

    LOL So many of these are my life!! Fantastic! And yes, we make up words in my house, too. My husband frequently (when I come up with a new one) looks at me like “WHUCK?!”

  4. Chris says:

    I cannot count to three anymore because when I start, my 3 year will finish it. I will say “one…” and then he says “two…don’t make me say three…”!! And then I can’t help but laugh and I have to walk away.

  5. Terri Hannah says:

    I love the book/ I can’t wait for it to come out I want a copy for me and one for my grown son who has 2 children. I think he will like it just as much as I do.
