Dad: Max, what do you know about correlation? Max: It does not imply causality. Of course, his tediously intellectual father taught him that, and as a result, there is now a 4 year old who knows more than you about economics, science and politics.
Bomminitin: A naked baby butt.
Wackin baby: The person who is “it” in a long-term game of tag. Usage: Who is the wackin baby? Mommy is the wackin baby.
Occan-dingdong: In a children’s book, character who is drawn facing the reader. Usage: That’s an Occan-dingdong. The rain babies are like an occan-dingdong. A strommel baby.
Mom: Max, please don’t yell in the house. Max: Max is using his forte voice!
