Medical Terms & Big Words . . .

I've blogged before about big words.  To the tune of . . . I believe in using big words around little kids so that they truly understand big words.  Big words like:  responsibility, consequence, integrity, honesty, indulgence . . .

Recently, though, in my house, my  kids have been sponging up medical terms.  This is the medical term of the day . . . . cymotrichous.  It's the medical term for "wavy hair".  Pronounced /sai-mah-trek-us/.  It's been a constant source of amusement around here . . . . especially this one.

MOTH walked into the kitchen and Little says with one eyebrow raised up kinda sexy, "Hey dad, wanna see my hairy nevus?"   Relax, relax   . . . a nevus is a mole.
