I've been correcting the children's grammar, and so when Joey told me, "I boy!" of course I began the sentence again for him. "I....."
And he fixed it this way:
"I am a MAN!"
Bam-Bam fussed at him, "You not a man! You said boy!" But Joey would have none of it. "I am a STRONG man!"
He is such a pleasure to have in our family!
