At bedtime, while reading stories, I've been talking to Cole and Amelia about punctuation. Pointing out apostrophes and quotation marks and exclamation points all in the name of literacy. (Yes, I do realize they're only four and two...)

Anyway, earlier this week, I was driving Amelia to daycare in the morning and she was holding her doll in the back seat.

She declared suddenly, in her sing-song voice, "My dolly has eyes!"

"Yes, she does," I answered.

"And a nose."

"That's right. She does have a nose too."

"What are these?" she asked.

"I can't see, Amelia. I'm driving. Can you describe them to me?"

She thought for a moment then said, "They're..... eyes.... quotation marks!"
