Have you ever raised kids?

Yes, my son is two and half years and now I'm pregnant.

It' so hot everyday but my son really loves to play outside. So I take him to the outdoor play ground at least 3 times in a week. It's really hard for adults.

If there is no covid-19 problems, we can use indoor playground that is cool. But you know, we can't do that at least in this summer.

Because of that, both of us got sun tan! When my younger sister looked at this, she said to us 'Oh, you look like a tasty baked bread! '

Yes, my son is two and a half years and now I'm pregnant.

It' so hot every day but my son really loves to play outside. So I take him to the outdoor playground at least 3 times  a week. It's really hard for adults.

If there were no covid-19 problems, we could have used an indoor playground and it would have been cool. Yet you know, we can't do that at least  this summer.

Because of that, both of us got suntan! When my younger sister looked at this, she said to us 'Oh, you look like a tasty baked bread! '

1. We always add the article 'a' to complete the phrase with 'and a half'.
2. Use this phrase meaning 'each day'.
3. Spelling.
4.'A week' is too general for you to use the preposition 'in'.
5. 6. This is the correct phrasing to use when after the use of the conjunction 'if'.
7. Use the conjunctive adverb to start your sentence instead of the conjunction word 'but'.
8. The preposition isn't necessary when the specifics of the time period being referred to aren't known.
I sympathize with your difficulties but I still have to say that your son's comment is adorable. Children sometimes have this innate sense of humor without even being aware of it, right?

Yeah, I think so,too!

Now he is into performing a football fish! Do you know a football fish? It's a deep-sea fish and has strange face. So my son is good at making his face strange!

Everyday he makes me laugh, and of course, makes me angry! I think it's same all over the world.

Every day he makes me laugh, and of course, makes me angry! I think it's same all over the world.

1. The article 'a' is needed to indicate the noun phrase 'strang face'.
2. Use this phrase, 'each day'.
I am impressed at how much he actually knows about different fish species. Where did he learn all that?

He learned it by his favorite picture book!

I can't explain it well, but that picture book don't have any word, only picture and are painted some world of animals, for example, in the sea, at the farm, at the polar and so on. There are so many species of animals along the theme of each page.

My son enjoys this book every night. He asks his dad or me 'What's this? What's this?'. It's so fun and good for learning animals!

1. Use the third person verb to refer to 'the book'.
2. 3. Use the plural noun when speaking in general.
4. This is a more natural and grammatically fitting way of writing the phrase.
I have to say that whoever came up with such a wonderful present for him is definitely a genius. It's so educational, isn't it?

Exactly!!

Actually, I found it on Amazon and tried to buy it! You know, it's little difficult to buy a book on online because we can't check contents before. We can check only description and reviews.

It was challenging because it might be waste of money sometimes if my son didn't like it. But this book was good choice for us!

It was challenging because it might have been a waste of money  if my son didn't like it. Still, this book was a good choice for us!

1. 7. Add the missing indefinite article to indicate the unspecified noun phrase being referred to.
2. The preposition isn't necessary when referring to the noun 'online'.
3. Add the definite article for the sake of specifics.
4. Use the plural noun to fix the agreement mistake.
5. Add the verbal phrase to indicate the possibilities of something happening even though it didn't happen.
6. The phrase is written as 'a waste of'.
7. I removed the omitted word.
8. Use this word to avoid the use of the conjunction word 'but' to start your sentence.
I know what you mean. It's like that when it comes to buying many things online.
Whatever the case, I am glad that you made a good choice. Does he usually like such books?

Now he is into this kind of books.
But his previous interest was picture books about construction machines.

His grandmother gifted him these and he started learning about construction site. For example, excavator, bulldozer, like that. Now I'm living in America. Here in America, backhoe is one of the most famous construction machines for boys.
But it's not in Japan. So I didn't know it.

Now I've been learning new word about construction machines in English, but honestly I'm not interested in these at all!

Sometimes I think what I am doing. It's so fun but a hard job.

1. Use the plural phrase to fix the agreement mistake.
2. Use this word to show an exception so as to avoid the use of conjunction words when starting new sentences.
3. 6. Fix the agreement mistake by making use of the plural noun.
4. Add the article to single out the singular noun being referred to.
5. Use the conjunction word to merge the sentences instead of starting one.
7. Add the preposition to indicate what it is you are thinking about.
