K is for Kiniptchin

I'm playin' with Jenny ! {Alphabe-Thursday}

Kiniptchin (cu nip chin)

A fit which just might include layin' on the ground, kickin' legs, and bellerin' until I get my way.

Of course, I am a lady, and I never throw Kiniptchins. I have learned much more subtle ways of getting what I want!

My toddler has these sometimes. They are followed my korner time or time out.

We used to say someone was having a kiniptchin fit LOL. I haven't thought of that word in years. Thanks for the memory.

Carol said...

I wanna throw fits like that...but like you I am a lady. Most of the time, I just lock myself in a closet!

Oh, I think I've mostly given up even trying to get my way. Kiniptchins just make me tired.

Amanda said...

I haven't heard that work in a long time! I had a couple of toddlers who had those kinds of fits. And sometimes I would really like to throw one, but, alas, I do not....

In my house those are known as Love Fits ... not that I ever have them, but the other Loves sometimes do. Big and small, they all are plagued with these fits ;) . not me, i don't have that Love gene ... nope, I just slam the door and sulk in the bathroom LOL! ;)
Fun K post.
Happy Easter!

My mom uses that word all the time. It is a fun word to describe not so pretty behaviour1

Jenny said...

OK Amy.

You are just soooo dern cueete!

That was supposed to be a Texas accent!

I am so ready to be mother-in-laws with you...although we have to wait a few years!

Totally funny and wonderful post!

Even though I'm still a bit ticked at you over your April Fools joke!

Yea...let me just kick some Chick-butt!

Hugs and A+

Great word which brings all sorts of images to mind. Particularly Elmer Fudd being thwarted by Buggs once again.

But never a lady.;)

Cute, clever kiniptchin post. I haven't heard that word in forever, though as a teacher of young children I saw a few of those through the years. LOL
Have a Happy Weekend!

I had to laugh when I saw that word. Good choice for a K word.
