Command of the Language - 07/23/14
If you have children, you know how exciting it is to see them learning new words and demonstrating a command of the language. For the past couple of days when my five year old and I have been out, he has asked me whether cars near us are more expensive than mine.
At first blush, you're thinking ok, what's this all about but my son is very vehicle aware. His first favorite car was the Ford Mustang. Lately he's fascinated with Corvettes. I have taken him to several cruise-ins and we have looked at a lot of cars.
Today, after about four of those "is your car more expensive than that one," we were next to a pick up truck that must have been a dozen years old. My son says dad, that truck is more expensive than yours.
That's when I asked him what expensive means. He says that means a car is fast. I laughed out loud. Just because your little uses a word correctly in a sentence isn't proof they know what it means. Great memory for me.
