Just call me a Blomifer

Forget calling me a blogger. Don't call me a mom. Don't even utter the word writer. Put an end to saying the word wife.

I'm a Blomifer. You read it right.

Everywhere I turn these days, television and radio ads are combining words to create new words. I figured I'd jump in on that action before the rest of the world beats me to it.

Here are some new words related to being a Blomifer. Some have called this a mlogger, but I'm not feeling it.

1. Blogositting -- Caring for my children while composing a blog post in my head.
2. Telejumping -- Activity of letting toddlers jump on couch cushions while we watch television.
3. Phonerfending -- Preventing a toddler from pushing the buttons on a phone while she should be talking with a relative.
4. Fauxcartershopping -- Pretending to look for something very urgent in big box hardware store when really I'm just desperate to entertain two toddlers before dinner and the great big car carts seem to work wonders.
5. Yawnseytiming -- The act of yawning 100 times while drowsily reading a bedtime story. My mother was a big yawnseytimer, and now I totally understand why. God, I know why.

How about dropping some of your family's new words into the comments here? I'll edit this list later in the week to include yours.

I will try to think of some fantabulous word to post...for now I just have to say that fauxcartershopping is my best friend. We just got back from doing that exact same thing...killed an hour before dinner...only another hour to go!!

cookworkversaction - cooking dinner while helping my 2nd grader with his homework, having a conversation with my 12 year old and distracting my 2 year old from climbing on the stove.

These are hilarious! I think I've done everything on this list at least twice.

Costco is my favorite place to fauxcartershop!!

I got quite a kick out of these.
Nothing like taking pop celebrity culture and making it work for your own life.
Phonerfending is a major activity for us here.

Wow, that is one cool cart. Apparently, I need to check out Lowe's so I can take my kids fauxcartershopping too!
