On the one hand, I can see not wanting to edit submissions, because the editing might potentially alter the poster's intent. On the other hand, I think it's safe to correct things like there/their/they're and the utterly atrocious and indecipherable sentence structure in this and other recent posts. If you have to read a sentence three or four times to try to figure out what the writer is trying to say (or if you read it three or four times and STILL can't figure out what the writer means), then it should either be edited or outright rejected.

Hey it happens. My kids will yell Daddy and then right before they reach me will see their mom. So it totally happens. Kids are mean to us sometimes even when they aren't trying to.
