Chat it up Tuesday!!~
Today I have decided no meme's for me!!~ I decided today I would chat it up a bit. I love to talk, talk often, on the phone, on the computer, to my husband, etc. etc.... I have always been a talker...even in school...shhhh....the boys think I was an angel~~~ (and Mom when you read this you shush too). Yes it is true, I talk a lot!...give me a cup of coffee and WOW you are really in for it!~ Now let me set up the dynamics of my household...I live with all Men! Except for my little pug Lucy, who if she could talk she would.
My son Alex who is almost 13 is my quiet son. My 8 year old son Jack is the talker. He talked at a very early age. Alex did not speak a word until he was 3! I thought something was seriously wrong with him, he would just look at me and follow directions, point to every letter in the Alphabet when I asked him, but never spoke a word. Turns out nothing at all was wrong, he is just the quiet, soft spoken type. My husband Mike, he is in between, kind of quiet, yet sociable and very funny. He is the quick witted type and has a very large vocabulary. I must confess when we first started dating, I would go home and look up words in the dictionary because I did not know what the hell he said, I of course acted like I did!!~ I pretended to be smart as well....thank god he thought I was cute and funny, because he later found out....I lacked some knowledge haha!!~ Now that I set the family dynamics up, let me tell you what I really THINK!!~ Have you ever watched Charlie Brown? Remember the teacher? (Mrs. Donovan) WHAWHAWHA??? well this is what I am convinced I sound like to Mike and Alex. I can't tell you how many times I say or ask something of them and they are looking like they are listening...turns out most of the time, they say "what you never told me that"?!!~Now I hear this often of women, that their husbands do not hear them, or pretend not to anyway. Is this just the hard wiring of Men, or are their Men out there that really do listen when their wives talk? Now I am not saying this is all of the time. But I do find it to be often. Then there are times Mike surprises me. For instance last year we where shopping in World Market, and I saw this cool pop corn maker, it is called the whirly pop. If you do not have one, I recommend one. Anyhow, I mentioned casually that day that I thought it was cool. FOr Mother's day that year, he bought me the whirly pop LOL!!~ Now is that because it revolved around food? Or was he in tune with me? Tell me your thoughts on this because I really do want to know.... Is this what my family is really thinking? Oh No Mom is talking AGAIN!!~
