Karisism: A phrase, word, name, place, quotation that my youngest daughter says incorrectly in the same manner as her father.
Today our car was stopped at a red light on the way out of the subdivision. Three besweatered (yes, I made that word up - besweatered: wearing a sweater) chihuahaus barked their fool heads off at us.
"Oh mommy! Look at those little doggies! I LOVE dem! Da one in da red shirt is my favorite! What are those doggies called?" Karis exclaimed.
"Oh...those are chihuahuas," I deadpanned. I hate chihuahuas, by the way.
Karis continued on with a lengthy monologue praising the attributes of the besweatered canines. Her final sentence emphatically brought her thoughts to a close, "I LOVE those coyotes."
"Chihuahuas, Karis. Not coyotes."
"Oh yeah. Dat's right."
