Chutzpah. This is a word that is used often by myself because sometimes I just can’t believe what people do. I mean really! I thought it would be fun to share our Chutzpah moments. The only rules are no names of stores, people, or events. You may also not use inappropriate language. Leave a comment listing your favorite Chutzpah moment! I mean laughter is the best medicine.
Or khutspe. Nerve, extreme arrogance, brazen presumption.
In English, chutzpah often connotes courage or confidence, but among Yiddish speakers, it is not a compliment. For more Yiddish Words
Chutzpah: My daughter’s got it!!!
The day started like it often does. You know crazy busy. This is because it is the first day that the children are set to return back to school after spring break. I never manage to get everything ready prior to the alarm. The moment of chutzpah this morning in our house came from our youngest and soon to be most vocal member, Margeaux. I attempted to grab a quick shower while the cherub and the angel were watching Blue’s Clues. I know, what was I thinking? I mean, get clean by myself? I heard the shower door open but soap was in my eyes and I failed to realize I had company. Once the soap cleared I realized my youngest was in my shower in her Pajamas. When I looked you know the way only a mom can she said, “no no, no bath!” Do they make childproof locks on shower doors?
What naughty act has your child completed lately that you had to fight the smile so you could explain that they should not have done whatever they did?
