Tonight Alex was reading one of the Mercer Mayer books to himself. The boy in the story is being sent to bed but keeps making up games so he doesn't have to go. Finally the dad yells at the kid to "Just go to bed!" The kid responds with "But I'm a bunny!"
Alex is learning that an exclamation point means excited or loud speech, so he interpreted that exchange as the boy yelling back at the dad. His response:
"Wow, the boy yelled back at his dad! That's not so good though...it just means there will be more yelling."
