Screaming Babies

Conversation in the car on the way home from camp today, while Thing#1 was screaming his head off for reasons unknown:

G: Mom, the baby is crying very loudly.

M: Yes, it's crescendo.

You will note that my 5 year old used good grammar by modifying "crying" with an appropriate adverb, a skill unknown to many adults. And that my 4 year old describes sounds with musical Italian.

Also important to note: The whole discussion began with G's exclamation of "Gee, he's FREAKIN' loud!" Yeah, that probably negates any points he got for the correct use of the adverb...
