? Mimis 2

clipping Verb
to sleep; to get some rest
 
Seems to come from Spanish "dormir" as 'mimis' was frequently used within a Hispanic family. It's playful in nature and is more frequently used with pets and children.
Etymology : Seems to come from a clipping of "dor-mi-r" and some novel creation through the repetition of the clipped "-mi-". Unknown what brought the '-s', though it is never said without the '-s'.
