Grammar Lessons

I had a bad day yesterday.
Well, technically, it was my 3 year old, Sourpuss (previously known as Sweetness), that had a bad day therefore, by association, so did I.
He was a terror. Just would not listen. At all. Naughty, naughty, naughty...

My 7 yr old, Light, came home from school with grammar homework, 'Place the proper punctuation at the end of each sentence - question mark, exclamation or period.'
While he's busy scribbling away, I'm at my wits end with Sourpuss who had just put the cat in the garbage can.

Light: "Hey mom. How come everything you say ends with an exclamation point?"

Boo had a bad day yesteraday too. Just like poor Sourpuss.

It was Sumo's turn to day. I feel your pain.

Max & Ruby, Ruby & Max ... there does that help, cause I was singing it all afternoon at work. :)

Know how teenage girls always use exclamation points when they write? They are practicing to be moms, for whom the exclamation point is a necessity.

Hang in there, babe.

LOL - out of the mouth of babes...
I hope tomorrow is a better day! That exclamation point is just for you ;)

HUGS!! And doesn't every sentence end in an exclamation point?? I know they do when I'm talking. :D

LOLOL... big smile here!

I think my spazzed-out kittyboy would love playing with your kiddos -- hee hee, he's often trying to jump into the trashcan! :-D

Rats, lost my last comment ... hopefully you don't end up with two copies.

Anyway, I'll bet Light's nickname was temporarily changed to Smart-A$$ after that! And exclamation marks are useful (and used often) when you're a Mom whether your kids are 3 or 23.
