Excitin’ Pointamation!

I have a new favorite word . . . excitin’ pointamation!

(OK, technically it is two words.)

Either way, I love it. I especially love it when I hear it spoken by my six-year-old boy. It is, after all, one of his very own inventions.

In case you haven’t yet figured it out, this is an excitin’ pointamation:  !

One of the things I love most when he says the words is the dropped ‘g.’ He drops the ‘g’ off the end of most of his ‘ing’ words. You’d think he was under some kind of Texan influence. It must be the genes.

One of these days I’m going to make a family dictionary. I’ll explain the origins and meanings of all these crazy words (gifted to me by my children) that have made their way permanently into my vocabulary.

Excitin’ pointamation . . . clearly here to stay.
