Mommy/Toddler "Buzz" Words

I was texting a friend about my most recent 'Mom Brain' incident. I recently purchased what I thought was my favorite author's new book but forgot to take the time to read the back to make sure it was the 'new' book.  As I settled into my plane seat headed for Mexico, I started to read and then quickly realized, I HAD ALREADY READ THIS! Good job Jeenifer....I bought a book I already read a year and a half ago on our babymoon. See, that is total 'Mom Brain' right there! Anyways, my friend texted me to inform me that she had finished up the correct new book and was going to send it to me! Greatness... - Jennifer Weiner, Best Friends Forever

Anyhoo, we were texting about my recent vacation and how nice it was to have a couple of days without the little ones! I love the little ones dearly but it was nice to not have to say "NO" or "Come here" or have 25+ pounds attached to my ankles as I cleaned the kitchen! In fact, I didn't have to clean a kitchen!

This got me thinking....

I bet there are a lot of "buzz" words all mothers use! I think it would be funny to see how many we all use every day! I bet we have a lot in common!
Just for fun...I have compiled a list for mommies with toddlers!
What do you think? Do you say these too?
To get me started, Urban Dictionary's Definition:

*pretty harsh but I guess accurate!*

A mom who has given up any chance at a career of her own to take care of and raise her kids.

Being a full time mommy was the best decision I have ever made! Even through the last 20 months of trial and error, hardships, and at times, misery, I know this job is a true honor and I accept it happily and gracefully! The highs far outweigh the lows!  It is truly a blessing to have the opportunity to spend the entire day with the ones I love and cherish the most. God is Good and he has blessed me with two wonderful boys and I am glad to be that person to guide them, with him, through their journey in this life.  

(Even if my kitchen never stays cleaned!)

There is no way to be a perfect mother, and a million ways to be a good one
 Jill Churchill quotes

Being a full-time mother is one of the highest salaried jobs... since the payment is pure love.
