  • My kids use the word "momologue" to describe the occasions when I answer their simple questions with an overly-detailed responses, usually expanding to broader philosophical topics.

    Ex: Mom, I only asked what was for dinner. I don't need to know all about the food pyramid and the healthy lunch movement.

  • I came up with this word 2 days ago and joined Wordnik today when I saw there was actually a category for it, even if it hasn't yet been spotted publicly. Momologue: the realization you got to speak for a suspiciously long time to your kid, uninterrupted, unchallenged, because he/she was either thinking about something else or needed to stay on your good side. (Thx, ruzuzu, for suggesting I place this here.)
