|How I envision any important messages
will need to be conveyed in our home
for the foreseeable future
In short, adult conversation doesn’t exist when you have young kids in the home. One morning recently my husband started telling me a story (obviously about our kids, b/c what else would we talk about?)
Husband: “So Isaac started crying b/c his tat (yes, we are so down with the slang for tattoos around here, albeit of the press-on Mickey Mouse variety or not) washed off in the bath, and then because–“
(he got cut off by screaming baby)
Screaming baby attended to, ready to continue with our conversation, I prompted him, “And then because…”
He looked at me like I have three heads, “Because what?”
“You were starting to say ‘because…’ and then our conversation got cut off,” I explained.
Three-headed look continuing, he asked “What conversation??”
Oh for the love of Pete…I give up. Maybe we’ll talk again while we wait for them to walk down the aisle at their college graduations. And I still have no idea what the “because” was all about.
