A Parent's Alphabet

Passing Notes Today:  Mrs. Kelly

Dear Girls -

Sometimes as parents we don't realize all the new words and skills we are acquiring!  For example, consider this mock rant:

"Ugh, we were up all night!  I'm not sure if it was a reaction to the Lipil--should I try Gentlease--or if he's cutting teeth??  I tried putting him in the Papasan, then walked him around in the Bjorn.  Nothing worked. Not even Orajel.  We decided to Ferberize.  By the way, do your Avents leak?"

"Rich the drummer is totes the cutest Mover."
Would that have made sense before becoming a parent?  Does it even make sense now?  If so, you are way more hip and in the know than I am...which probably isn't a stretch.

In honor of our "letter week" I thought I would make my own parent alphabet to demonstrate.  Can you identify any of these?  Are there any you can add?

A - Avent
B - Bjorns and Boppys
C - Cozy Coupe
D - Desitin
E - Enfamil
F - Ferberize
G - Genie (the diaper variety)
H - Helicopter Parent
I - Imagination Mover
J - Jumperoo
K - Kegel
L - Lanolin
M - Melissa and Doug
N - Nuk
O - Onesie
P - Pack and Play
Q - Quinny
R - Robeez
S - Sophie
T - Travel System
U - Umbrella Stroller
W - Wubbzy
X - 6X.  (Can someone please explain to me why there is no 5X or 7X?  Just 6X?)
Y - Yo Gabba Gabba
Z - Zhu Zhu Pet


PS Totally sold out on "x" but it gets you every time.

Oh gosh, seeing "kegel" pop up in the middle of your alphabet made me laugh so hard I just peed my pants a tiny bit. Wait...does that mean I should be doing more kegels? Er, I mean, any kegels at all?

BTW, you are not the only one mystified by the 6X. At first I assumed it was a size intended for portly first-graders, but then I realized, as you mentioned, no other size seems to get that "x" designation. I don't get it.

I know you've got some you could add. Also, does anyone really do kegels. Maybe I don't want to know.
