camera found!

So I found my camera and thought I would do some catching up on my posts, this might be kind of long. First we were in UT in the middle of may, Aunt Talara busted out the water toys and the Allphin cuosins got to slip and slide and swim/ get eaten by the frog pool. Then back in CO for memorial day it was very cold and wet but we decided to brave the elements and had a hot dog roast and made smores. We were all dripping on the way home. But we had so much fun with the Chapmans and Coxs, it was very memorable. Then we loaded up the Penske, Chris was truly amazing loading that beast, and came to scorching AZ where the kids got re-acquainted with their Rucker cousins Dezi, Jeryn and Simeon (Roenen too and met baby Carter). It has been great to be close to the fam again.

the mom lingo -bingo

So, I have no idea where my camera is. That's why I'm suckin it up in the blogging district. I was just having a few thoughts as i was reading some friends blogs and decided to type. A couple different friends have typed up their kids nick names and I just think that it is so funny, i love them and i love when people post them. But it also made me think about the mom language. I talked to a couple girls about it before but I find it amazing that when you become a mom (it seems) you begin rhyming all you words, like canyon is canyon manyon, sheridan becomes sheridan meridan, or sher bear, i don't think i ever would have uttered wowie kazowie before i had children. Or filling in words like Grumplestiltskin or Frumplestiltskin . Or trying out new forms of descriptive words -what a cutey cuterson? or pretty von frump girl? What possesses us to speak this way?
