What Does Pulverize Mean

What does pulverize mean? The five-year-old asks me. His face is a frown. “No idea,” I lie. Having already put up with sobbing wailing over the Easter Bunny’s beheading which was explained by his 11-year-old brother. Brother who giggles and runs off. No telling how he has used pulverize.

Certainly a poem that keeps me hanging... wondering... Kids are so cool Caren as is this poem. I remember when my son first got here from Tokyo and was learning english, he made the statement to a friend, "I have an abundance of language." Lol Then proceeded to, say but not use in a sentence, words lije floride; arrange, and so forth. He was very proud. BUT it seems, in this poem, that these children had physically used the word pulverized. A wonderful cliff hanger for sure Caren. Thanks.

Thank you so much Jeff. I get all of my BEST ideas from children. They are so helpful in that department.

I love the little squirt; 11-year-old humor.

I love it when they REMEMBER the whole word. Makes it more clear faster.
