Lesson: Vocabulary
Teacher: Miss Grace Lenore
Student: Mama

Setting: Grace and Annabelle are eating lunch ("putter and jelly samiches", as Grace would say) at their table.

"Mmmmm," says Grace.
"Is that good, Gracie?" asks Mama.
"Deelipfish," replies Grace.
"Do you mean delicious?"
"No, Mama, not delicious. Deelipfish."

Pronounced dee-lip-fish.
Meaning: even better than delicious.

Does anyone have the number for Webster's? I think they need to hear about this one.

How adorable! I love the confidence and bravado in her word. She's developing her very own lexicon!
