Instead of Cool and Awesome Use...

synonyms for cool and awseome


Ok, so I'm am the very proud parent of 3 children. I myself have a long history of using cool and awesome way-way to much, so now that two out of three of my children have arrived to point that they use the expression 'way to much', I have now banned it from the house! I know what a fuddy duddy, but as I have explained to my eldest, you could go the whole day with just saying cool, used in various tones.. Heaven forbid someone asks an open ended question..YIKES!


So to make this task easier for anyone wanting a quick list, I am posting some suggestions and synonyms for cool and awesome. Some items on the list they will know but some are very good alternative that you may be surprised how well they may fit to describe a particular situation.


And if you really want to challenge them, ask them to look up the ones they don't know!
