My mom is a wonderful, fun, and creative person, and over the years she has found a way to develop what seems like her own language. She has the ability to create weird or funny phrases on the drop of a dime and is able to make people laugh wherever she goes. I have decided to start cataloging all of her “momsims” for others to enjoy.   This is a collection of words and phrases in alphabetical order. I will update it as new ones emerge.


Al caboom – A smoking mole killer. Their neighbor gave them Amdro Gopher Gasser for the terrible mole problem they were having in their yard. For some reason, mom calls it Al caboom. 


Bicth – The humorous public misspelling of the word bitch. “That woman is a B-I-C-T-H.”
