(Congratulations to Carolsue for winning the Shel Silverstein book & cd!)
So, the other day I am reading Zoe a book when she points to an exclamation mark at the end of a sentence. Our conversation goes like this:
Zoe - I know what that is.
Me - What is it?
Zoe - It's an inflammation mark.
Me - A what?
Zoe - An inflammation mark (with a disgusting tone that I should've listened the first time).
Me - Oh.
Zoe - Mrs. Green says that when we see one of those that we need to get really excited & raise our voices loud. You know, Mom. Like when you say Yahoo!
Me - Huh!
Zoe - That's why it's called an inflammation mark. So people will notice!
