Mundafit: noun. A fit thrown over something mundane and generic.

So, the morning was like any other morning. Tra-la-la-la-la, walking Philosopher Child to school with Viking Toddler in tow. Get the school, turn around, head home.

We get to the street and the ever-friendly (in a good way) crossing guard stops traffic so we can cross. As we are walking away, she calls out to Viking Toddler, "See you later, alligator!"

"Aren't you going to say good-bye?" I asked Viking Toddler.

"No," he replied, clearly rather angry. "She called me alligator."

I told the story to Husband. He patiently tried to explain to our little guy that you are supposed to say, "After while, crocodile!"

Well, he didn't like that. "I'm not a crocodile!"
