Level of tiredness: Arguing grammar and linguistics with a 4-year-old.
Destroy: I throwed my transformer down the stairs.
Me: You THREW your toy. And don’t do that.
Destroy: No, I throwed my transformer, not my toy.
Me: Ok. But you already threw it. Which means you did it already. The past tense of “throw” is “threw.” And don’t do that.
Destroy: And then you catched it.
Me: I CAUGHT it.
Destroy: Because it was already catched?
Me: Kind of. “Caught” is the past tense of “catch.”
Destroy: No. You catched it because it didn’t broked.
Me: It didn’t BREAK. But don’t throw your toys.
Destroy: You’re doing it wrong Luke Skywalker! <uproarious laughter>
And then I spilled my coffee down my shirt. I’m gonna need more.

Oh, four year old! We’ve named this age “fournrey” in our house.
That is absolutely fabulous. Dead on.
