30,000 Words


When my phone rang this morning and it was Kelley asking if I wanted to meet up at the park with our girls, I didn't hesitate for a second before saying yes.

Because anyone who stays home all day with a little baby knows that as much as we love our little darlings, it's imperative to 1) Get out of the house at least once/day and 2) Have some stimulating adult conversation.

The second point above is especially important of you want to save your marriage. Because our poor husbands walk in the door and are immediately assaulted with our verbal vomiting of every detail of the day... you know how it goes... Moana reached out for the keyboard and pressed the spacebar for the first time today and you should have seen her laughing at the dog! Then we went to Toys-R-Us and picked up these cute teething toys for her to suck on... I think she's going to like them... and look! A little toothbrush.. isn't it cute? Angela posted today that she took Zach in the pool and he loved it and kicked the water a lot and then Beth posted on Facebook that she dropped her cell phone into a port-a-potty at Oceanside... can you believe that???

Kelley and I laughed about how we talk non-stop at our husbands for like two hours straight everynight. Scott and Ryan will appreciate that we used some of those 30,000 words per day on each other today.

And of course it was just the cutest thing ever watching Moana and Sara interact... they're still maybe a little too little to really appreciate each other, but they did express some interest. Sara was so cute rolling around on the blanket and talking up a storm... Just like her mom!! :)

That's great that you guys get to hang out together and the girls can hang out with one another. And I totally know what you mean about 30,000 words. I was that way on maternity leave. I kind of miss those days.

Angela said...

whew....sometimes I can't even stand to hear my own 30000 words.

Rebecca DeWire said...

I feel the same way, but rather than me talking non-stop, I make my Scott tell me about everything that happened during the day at work.

Babies will eat just about anything. Including other babies apparently. :o)

Sara said...

Ryan thinks this is a pretty darn good description of how I talk on a daily basis...so scatter brained :-)

I find that I talk to random strangers a lot more now b/c I am so hungry for conversation. Plus, it's not like I'm in a rush to get anywhere, so I have more time to chat!
