Mensagem:  Hi Fabiane! I was afraid you would ask that!!! It just might be that it is not grammatically correct and it is, as Tom wrote, often used when children are arguing, etc. Give me a little time to look this up and I will write on it again. "Too" and "also" mean the same thing: I am going to the store, too. I am going to the store also. Same thing. So, I think in the "You did, too!" sentence, "too" means "so" -- "You did so!" as in "Yes, you did!" not "You did also." But let me check my grammar books. It might be one of those exceptions you will hear spoken but won't see in writing unless an actual conversation is being cited. I think "You did so!" would be the correct way to write this, but let me look it up to make sure :) :) :) Um abraço, Ana
