For those of you who may be new here- wow, my third trimester grammar sure does get dicey. This blog is nominated for a Pulitzer, just so you know, you snobs. I’ll give you a heads up as to which words give me the most trouble during the brain decay that is 8 months pregnant. That way you know to blame the baby and not the public school system. The following is an incomplete list because sometimes I don’t even struggle, I simply type the wrong word only realize upon proofreading and without total conviction that I may have typed the wrong word. “That word is… wrong?”
Then/than: I never wonder about this word when I smart brain. When I dumb brain I really don’t know.
Your/You’re: My hand types what it will, my brain rarely catches on.
Possessive nouns: I’ll just stick an apostrophe in there just in case. Right girl’s? hahahahaha.
Capitalization: Should I use a capital letter in here? No? I’ll do it anyway.
Now you know. The struggle is real. This is a season of dumb in my life. But I AM growing a human, and that makes me so legit I can’t even possibly quit.
