What we've come to

Once upon a time my husband and I had normal adult conversations. You know, about movies, politics, the weather, trivia, current events, etc., the normal kinds of things adults discuss with each other.

Since he works two hours away four days per week now, we have webcam conversations online 3 or 4 nights per week.

But after 3.5 years of parenting twins, we no longer have many of those adult conversations. Not with agile little toddlers scrambling into my lap to talk to Daddy at every opportunity. Now our conversations usually center around the girls, of course. And the attention of our girls normally centers around their #1 most favored stuffed animal: Tiger. So this was a screen shot of most of our conversation tonight.

I vividly remember the days of wishing I could speak in whole sentences. They are over all too soon.

After working with language impaired, and the cognitively and chronologically young for many years, I constantly surprise myself that I am able to put more than three or four words together at a time! (Without grammatical errors!)
Love the screen shot!
I bet it was an EPIC converstation! :-)
I penciled that RW 1/2 mar. program into my planner...we shall see how it goes!

Is that Catherine or Elizabeth? Oh, wait, that's Tiger...

With a one year old and three year old, we constantly shift speaking styles. I can feel your "pain."

ah yes. i actually contemplated a job over the holidays so i could speak with other adults and not have it be about my kids or the house or have a look returned to me that i could possibly be a moron. i opted against it... but some days...
