Grammar Lesson

Why did I think that I would get Italian grammar right when I struggle with English?  I don't know.  If it weren't for spell check, all of you would think I was illiterate.  Even with spell check my grammar is awful.  I am the ultimate comma splicer, just ask all my English teachers.

So I redid my blog header  recently and I liked the picture so much I posted it on my Facebook for all to see.  My MIL has a page and tells me yesterday that my grammar was wrong.  I titled my blog Mia Due Bambini with the intention of saying "My two boys".  Come to find out the proper way to say it is "I Miei Due Bambini".

So as you can see I fixed it.  I fell like such a schmuck for not at least going to her before I did my title in the past.  Of course my husband never pointed out I was wrong either, but then again I think his Italian grammar is a little rusty to begin with.

Other than my poor grammar Thanksgiving was busy but great.  I even got some great deals on Friday, my first ever time going shopping at 4 AM.  It was fun and not as busy as I expected.  I had fun strategizing with my friend and sister the night before and getting all the stuff we went out for.

*** When I hit the spell check I had 15 mistake...told you I suck!

I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving!  Here is my family that I am so thankful for and had a great time with!


  1. Wow...all of those people and every single one was looking at the camera! Amazing!

    LOL on your blog title mix-up...oh well...easy fix! Love your header pics too!

  2. LOL! I never would have caught the mistkae - maybe cuz I don't speak Italian! I'm just as bad with spelling, tho.

    What a big, beautiful group! I love it!

  3. I bet nobody had a clue. You're one of the few Italiano speakers in these parts. I'm glad you had a good Thanksgiving.

  4. How on earth did you get everyone looking at the camera at once?! Amazing...and such a fun group shot, well done!

    And nope - never would have known that your title was wrong...either way it is cute!

  5. Love the group photo!!!! I would never have guessed the title was misgrammered :P

  6. just stopping by to answer your question from yesterday!!

    The peaceful scenes have actually been more frequent lately!!!

    Caden will sit still for shockingly long periods of time when there is a movie on. He will literally sit for the ENTIRE cars movie!! He's even asking for it daily, but I'm trying to limit TV time some at least...hard though when I have stuff to get done!!!

    Has Francesco seen Cars? Oh my...Caden CANNOT get enough of that movie..."CAARRRSS" and "TRAAACCTTOR" are by far the most common words we hear around here! :)

  7. Too Funny. I spell check and still get mistakes. Commander has to read the post prior and than sometimes even make changes for me after I post.
    At least you don't have a crazy title like mine- Commander picked it out thinking it would be fun. It's just hard to explain that it means nothing.

    Great pic of the family. Nice job with the timer.

    I think that is the first time I have ever seen you. Are you gonna make another debut so we can actually see what you look like?????

  8. What a great shot of the family. I don't usually spell check, but probably should.

  9. I can't believe that you got such a great family photo - especially with so many people! You are amazing!
