queshtimation mark


What is this symbol?, I asked my son in a teacherly manner while he was practicing reading.

A queshtimation mark, he replied. I corrected him, but thought, wow, that's a pretty cool word he stumbled upon.

So henceforth I am naming "?!," which I frequently use when emailing, the queshtimation mark, in honor of my blossoming wordophile B.

It's good to see you posting again. I haven't been too with it myself as far as visiting other blogs and commenting. I love the words that kids come up with. Maybe your son is a future Shakespeare. The old Bard was known for inventing a few words in his time.

Thank you! I have missed blogging but found that I haven't been very inspired. I have some ideas in draft though. I've spent a lot of time on facebook catching up with old friends, which is fun, but sometimes I need a place to write about more personal things than I can reveal there. It's much harder when you actually know people to let them see you for who you really are.

I hope B turns out to be a writer at least! If I have just one out of the three kids I will be happy!
