A Word for Mother’s Day
Matrisate v. to imitate a mother.
Word in the Wild: Look at the little ones matrisating with their dolls. Aren’t they sweet?
Here’s a nice obsolete word for you on Mother’s Day. If, like me, you have a brilliant, funny, thoughtful, and kind mother, you’ll be delighted if someone accuses you of matrisating. I suppose some folks might not like the accusation as much as others, though. It’s probably best to suss out the situation a little before you throw this word around. 🙂
