As a parent, this has become a fact of life. And it sucks. Those of you with older kids will remember the mumbo jumbo phase of the toddler years. That's where I'm at. I have a toddler and a one year old who just speaks straight jibberish.
We need a dictionary. For toddlers. That explains what. the. hell he's saying.
Teenagers speak their own language too! So they should have a dictionary too.
What about the older people? Who speak from the time of yore.
So three dictionaries. One for each generation. Except for my generation. Cause I know what I'm talking about. Most of the time. But what would be included in these dictionaries?
I've taken the liberty to throw together a few "samplings" of words and phrases that DO NOT make sense to me. Feel free to use them to get in touch with your toddler, teenager, or old folk.
