"Mom, what's an adjective?"**
(Don't most kids start with nouns and verbs? My kids are weird.)
"It's a word that describes something."
"What does describe mean?"
"It tells about it. Like saying 'pretty girl'. Pretty is an adjective."
"So if I say [Mister] is pretty silly, pretty is an adjective?"
"No, silly is an adjective, but pretty would be an adverb."
"Mom, what's an adverb?"
"It's a word that describes a verb or an adjective. Or another adverb."
"Mom, what's a verb?"
"It's an action word."
"What's an action word?"
It's like "who's on first?" I swear.
Can you tell we like to watch Schoolhouse Rock? Mister loves it too. Maybe that's what we'll do for preschool...
