My dad called me and reported that Willa said her first sentence. It was "Henry poop."

Already a snitch.

  1. I hate to point this out, but what Willa said actually wasn't a sentence. Henry and poop are technically two nouns. You need a verb. -BSCM

  2. Don't be a hater just because the one year old didn't add the "ed" to the end of the word. When they're that young it's all about intention.

    PUHlease point out MORE generic errors of usage and grammar. Perhaps you'd like to tell me my epidermis is showing? Or explain to me how "myriad" doesn't need "a" in front of it. I want to LEARN.

    Now I am like those people that get in fights via YouTube comments.

  4. Em - your epidermis is showing. Maven - how do you know Willa wasn't saying, "Henry and poop"??? This, again, is technically not a sentence. If, however, she were saying, "Henry is poop" or "Henry resembles poop" then I could give her credit. But as the statement stands, there is just too much ambiguity. -BCSM

  5. She was definitely using the infinitive form of the verb. She was being efficient.

  8. This exchange has me picturing Truman Capote as an apopleptic Lionel Twain in "Murder By Death."
