Hective

Parents can relate:

My favorite portmanteau came from our two-year-old daughter, whose response to the question “How was your day [at daycare]?” was: “Oh, hective, very hective.” We assume that it was a combination of hectic and active, but whatever the source in her mind, it remains a wonderfully descriptive word for busy family life.
From Anne Beer, on the AWAD mail Issue 183, October 22, 2005.
My wife thought this perfectly appropriate to our lives with a two year-old.
