Judah turns 1 soon, and to help celebrate, my parents are going to come spend the weekend. But I got to thinking about Charis' vocabulary, and thought that my parents might need something to help them decipher her words. So, without further ado, a few words from the Charis Lexicon:
1)King Hat: the headpiece worn by a reigning monarch, e.g., a crown.
2)Eggo: Dora's cousin. Also spelled Diego.
3)Bawberry: the fun-loving, fruit-smelling girl with the surname "Shortcake."
4)Darby: Ken's significant other, Skipper's older sister.
5)Araf: Long-necked spotted mammal.
6) Bear: a location word, used in phrases like, "That's neither here nor bear," or, "Hey, mom, there's a McDonald's over bear."
7)Beer: Abbreviated name for the stuffed animal popularized by Theodore Roosevelt.
8)Mealk: Bovine by-product commonly poured on cereal or mixed with Ovaltine.
9)Mealted: what cheese is after being exposed to high temperatures.
10)Deedog: aka, frank, wiener, redhot...
11)Newels: what you find underneath spaghetti sauce
12) Seal: e.g., Rice Krispies, Cheerios, Corn Flakes.
13)Buell: a vessel which may or may not contain seal and mealk
14)A Nana: long yellow tropical fruit that you may slice on top of your seal.
