I love English grammar. Period. I was a big fan of the red colour English grammar guide by Wren and Martin when in school. I continue to notice Adverbs, Prepositions,Conjunctions keenly when reading.

The other day I told my husband that when our daughter begins school, I’ll teach her language and you look after Mathematics to which he asked me if Little A would understand,enjoy and use English the way I do and my generation does?!
Well, language has certainly changed. U2 is a music group I enjoy and today in SMS language it means more than a music group it is “you too” for short.
Next, my pet peeve- not using apostrophes. There is a difference between its and it’s and you’re and your but it doesn’t matter anymore! We do understand the contextual use of the word with or without the use of the apostrophe isn’t it? A missing apostrophe bothers me and my family says I have too much and sometimes unnecessary grammar vision. Do I? Am I the only one bothered about the humble apostrophe?
What is going to happen of this grammar loving mother?
My question to mothers with kids in school “should I bother much about grammar in this twitter addicted, SMS loving fast world?
