when i started teaching full time in 2005 i noticed that i'd adopt a phrase or word and wear it out with so much use.
at times it annoyed me, but got me wondering how it is that i latched onto that particular idea.
now that i'm home with our boy and less concerned (perhaps) with the proper use of words and modeling language for my students, i find i'm making up my own words and phrases, then overusing them like mad.
annoying or clever...don't answer that.
however, i've noticed my language is spreading...david has been caught saying sleepified, i'm sure of it.
