I’m not talking about peanuts or stuff that comes out of your nose. We’re going with the not traditional definition here. Like the one above that came from Urban Dictionary.

Goober is just the perfect term for when my 3-year-old stands on his chair in the middle of dinner and shakes his bum like Elvis while singing some ridiculous song that he made up.

It’s what you call your child when they are doing something that should make you mad but the way that they are doing it is just so funny that you can’t help but laugh at them.

I’ve got a house full of goobers and they certainly make my life interesting.
