Recent usage by my two year old son:

1. (pouring imaginary water on my chest) “Mommy, I’m watering your mims so they will grow.”

2. (in an escalating contest to find better names to call each other, as in “you are a box of chocolates!” “Oh, yeah? Well, you’re a bag of marshmallows!”) “Oh yeah? Well, you are a big, big, big, big, big, big, big, nice mim!” The ultimate compliment in his mind.

3. (patting a giant, rounded pile of play doh) “Look, Mommy! I made one of your mims!”

I could go on.

And here are Mims and Bunny, as I found them, this morning when I went to make the beds.
