Parenting Grammar

Working on adjectives with Kathleen, I explain that adjectives are the words that describe nouns.

Kathleen: “What?”

Me: “Like ‘red’ in the phrase ‘red nose.'”

Kathleen: [blank stare]

I now pick up a multi-color construction paper star that Lucy made at school and hold it aloft.

Me: “Ok. Kathleen, describe this star.”

Kathleen: “The star that my weird father is holding.”

Technically “weird” is an adjective, so I am counting this as a win.
