Conor has recently began a campaign to narrate our lives. It sometimes goes like this:

"Mommy! Look at that tanker big truck! Oh, I think that is very interesting when the tanker big truck is on the ROAD. Ax-sool-lee, I don't want to to go Red Robin, I want to stay at home and you cook me dinner here or look! a squirrel and read the I Spy book to me Mommy? and Finley needs her passie....aaaaa-gooooooo, Finley. A goo, Mommy. Daddy is home now? Daddy is at work now. Daddy is at his NEW work now. Daddy fixed tractors and big trucks and I wear my work sweatshirt and Mommy? Where is Trocipal Funder? I love you Mommy.  I have a kiss Mommy?  I give Finley a kiss, Mommy? aaaaa-gooooo, Finley.  We go for a walk, I hold your HAAAAAAND, Mommy?"

Yeah, maybe that seems annoying, but its actually kind of cute.

Ok, on other days though, he sounds like this:

"Mommy, can I have a snack? Mommy, can I watch Monster Jam? Mommy, I WANT A SNACK please.  Mommy!  You need to LISTEN TO MY WORDS because I am very ANGRY at you.  Mommy, you go sit in timeout, RIGHT NOW!  Mommy?  Can I have a snack?  Mommy, can I watch Monster Jam?  Mommy, can I watch Sesame Street?  Mommy, where is Daddy?  Mommy, where is Opa?  Mommy, where is Nana?  Mommy, where is Tucker?  MOMMY!  I want a snack RIGHT NOW!  Ax-sool-lee Mommy?  I don't have to go potty in the big boy potty.  MOMMY!  NO!  You DON'T feed Finley right now!  What are you DOING Mommy? What are you DOING, Mommy?  What are you DOING, Mommy?  WHAT. ARE. YOU. DOING. MOMMY!!!! Mommy, Zack coming over today?  Ax-sool-lee Mommy, I'm not going to sit right now, I'm going to stand right now.  No, Mommy!  YOU go sit in timeout."

It is truly a never ending torrent of words around here.  It is both completely sweet and completely annoying.  Sort of like parenthood in general, I suppose.

Happy Thanksgiving to you all. Conor is the cutest, smartest little boy around. Trust me on one thing. His constant babbling is sweet compared to a rather opinionated 13 year old girl. BTW, I do loan her out...especially at that special time of month which now seems like it's every other day! Lord help us in this house survive her! :)
Love you all!
