    Someone talked about the 'ed' brothers and the 'ing' brothers once upon a time. When the 'ing' brothers are invited anywhere, they are always on time--things are happening right now. The 'ed' brothers on the other hand can't seem to get their act together, so they always arrive late--the event already happened. When adding these endings to words with silent/sneaky e, my kids know that the e and a vowel suffix don't get along in the same neighborhood, so the e moves away (is dropped) before adding the vowel suffix.
