Overview

Wishjack: (WISH—jak) v: To blow out the candles on another child's birthday cake.

Been a kid? Have a kid? Know a kid? Been left utterly speechless by the wit, wisdom, grossness, and hilarity that accompanies children wherever they go?

The Kid Dictionary has the ingenious and hilarious words you need to describe the indescribable: life with kids. Humorous, insightful, and unique, it's perfect for anyone with kids even remotely in their life — from expectant parents to grandparents to aunts and uncles.

Finally, the pitch-perfect "why didn't I think of that?" words you've always needed!

Brofitti: (broh-FEE-tee) v: The act of scribbling with permanent marker on the face of a younger sibling.

Clandesdine: (klan-DES-dyne) v: To hide from one's child while eating a cookie so he doesn't ask for one too.

Eric Ruhalter works in television in NYC, making commercials about movies. At night, he comes home to his wife Kara and their three rambunctious children. There, he's able to step inside of himself to write down the unique and unusual observations that inspire him. He also enjoys editing video, pimping his work via social media, surfing, Frisbee, and ping pong. He studied economics at Dickinson College where he learned that he's not the least bit interested in the theories of economics. So rather than study, he spent most of his time writing.

    The kid dictionary is an awesome must read. I thank Eric Ruhalte

    The kid dictionary is an awesome must read. I thank Eric Ruhalter for sharing his words to describe kids with other parents and the world. Using humor to get past the challenges of parenting is one of the best anecdote, because at times we don't have a choice but to move along and smile about the things they say and do.
