My little people chatter all day long. Some of them never stop talking- not while they eat, while they play, or while they're in bed- right up until they fall asleep mid-sentence. I like to talk too. Most of the time this works out nicely. They tell me things, I ask more questions, and life carries on. Other times I'm in the middle of something and not paying 100% attention so they trail along behind me talking and talking.
Today I was trying to get dinner going. It takes all day and I forgot to rinse the beans last night so I was setting them up for a quick soak. I had help.
"Kelli? Whatcha doing? Those are beans? What beans? Pin- TOE beans? Oh. You put water? You cook them? Is that a clock? oh, a scale? You get beans? I have nipple!"
At that point I did a double take and stopped my bean patter. Sure enough, she's standing there pointing at it.
"Actually, you have two of them." I mean really, what else is there to say at that point?
"Oh! Yes! I have two nipples! I cook beans with you?"
And we're off and running again.
