What's a Zayahnism?

(n. Zay-nah-ism:)
  1. Well its defined as a moment when My 5year old girl responds to a life event is a way that causes your neurons to fire rapidly, misfire, or overload. You become filled with a sudden uncontrollable want to either laugh, stare intensely in space or just smile and drool. I have been hearing these since she was age 4 but now since she have been to Pre-K they have increased in the frequency and potency. I will share these as she reveals them.
  2. An answer to a question by a 5yr old that is delivered  in a very blunt matter of fact way

June 13, 2011-(Zanahism)You shouldn't tell on Zaynah or baby sistah will hit you

Situation: Zaynah messing with her older sister , Shayla's DS. Tai tells mom on her. Zaynah have to put DS down. Little baby sister, Jaime (11months old) hits older brother, Tai (10yrs old) with her toy.

Tai: Ow! Stop hitting me, Jaime.
