Who Needs Adult Conversation?

Well, I probably should get some practice at it but, but I don't often get that feeling that I need somebody to talk to. Perhaps its because I have many online conversations each day anyway.

The second reason I don't think I need any more conversation with other people is because I'm all talked out by 5pm. Aaron and Adrian talk non stop from the moment they wake up. If they're not talking to each other, they are talking to one of us. If they're not talking to one of us, they are talking to themselves or one of their toys. If we're out an about, they try to make conversation with the people we interact with. 

I try to be present but I'll admit that I'm not always there. They want my opinion on everything! What do you think of a dinosaur with a laser? Would you like to drive a dump truck or an excavator? Who do you think will win, Batman or Spiderman? Is Batman a real super-hero? 

Its not all bad. As long as I get a break every now and then to engage in some of that online conversation I mentioned above, I can laugh through it all. They do say some funny things!

Today, as we drove past a cemetery this is what the conversation was like...

Adrian : Thats where dead people live.
Aaron  : So, is that where you're going to live soon?
Me      : Hopefully not too soon.
Aaron  : Yes, I don't want you to die yet. Maybe in 2015. (WHAT?)
Me      : Aaron, thats in 2 years!
Aaron  : No, its not 2 years. Its 3 years. (Yes, he corrected my addition!
Me      : Whatever it is, I want you to cremate me, that means burn me, and then keep me in your house.
Aaron  : Do we need to get dry sticks or firewood or something? 
Adrian : Definitely, we need sticks. ('Definitely', appears to be Adrian's favourite word this week.)

The two of them really crack me up. I was mostly distracted for that conversation about where the dead live because I had to concentrate but the more you get into a conversation with them, the more you see the inner workings of their minds and the funnier/cuter it is. 

I think I might actually get jealous if the two of them got stuck into conversations with each other and purposely left me out of it.

Sounds hilarious! What fun you have with your boys... They certainly have tonnes of imagination. Lol. But seriously... Hope you are around longer than 3 years!

If you see a pile of sticks starting to accumulate in your back yard.... RUUUNNNN!!!!

You get used to them leaving you out of conversations. But, it gets bad when they start referencing that conversation that they had without you and when you try to join in, they tell you that you don't know what you're talking about!

That is a hilarious story!

so much cuteness. I'm gonna look at sticks in a different light now....

Amanda said...

Elaine - We'd better meet up next weekend...just in case!

Mike - You might remember that I had a post not long ago about how much they love playing with sticks. Well, I'm having second thoughts now...

Irene - *sob* That day is inevitable and its going to be a sad one.

eViL pOp TaRt - Glad you enjoyed it.

Fiona - You'll have to start blogging again once the little baby is out. Then I can keep up with all the cuteness that will be happening on your side.
