It’s in the Bag

In the car after a birthday party, the girls are rummaging through their goodie bags…

Isabella (the five-year-old): Mommy, is the lollipops in the bag?

Mommy: Are the lollipops.

Iz: What, Mama?

Mommy: “Are the lollipops in the bag?”

Iz: I don’t know. That’s why I asked you.

Mommy: No, Honey. You said is when you should have said are. Because, the word “lollipops” is what we call “plural.” Do you know what that means?

Iz: Oh, I understand what you’re saying… Julianna, is the lollipops in the bag?
