No it is not a new kind of toy craze set to take over the world… It is what happens when you try to type with a small cranky baby on your lap. You don’t make ‘typos’ you make ‘babyos’.
I am the first to admit that I suck at spelling and grammar… and I can’t type either. Add to that list of skills the fact the I am almost always blogging with one or other small child vying for my attention and it is not going to go well.
I often have the two big ones fighting over some toy or other behind me, while the little one is trying to grab the mouse or climb over my shoulder so he can crash down onto the floor head first. Plus I am often cooking dinner, reading 7 other blogs, waiting for three web pages to load, checking email, hanging washing and whipping up a bit of a design for digi scrapping all while I am trying my best to pretend to be a mediocre blog writer.
So that is my excuse.
That is why yesterdays post was about ‘wasing’ and not ‘washing’ and why I’ve managed to write ‘bowel’ instead of ‘bowl’ on more than one occasion. That is why it is evil and wrong that fire fox’s spell checker doesn’t work in the title field of wordpress’s write page. That is why my writing only makes sense one blog post out of every ten…. that is, unless you have ever lived in a house with small children, then you will be able to understand the bad spelling, the total lack of grammar and the ‘babyos’.
Now nobody is allowed to count the errors in this post ok…. just pretend they were all done on purpose.. to highlight a point!
