Y3 - 359/365: Cousin-Chatter
Ryan: You mind if I sit up here? You get a better view of the telly from this spot on the settee, I think. I wonder what's on next anyway...
Amy: Yeah, whatever. (thinks) Geez, I hope he doesn't yap all the way through my programmes.
Ryan: Oh hey, look! There's Peppa Pig! I love her. She's really talented...and she has a Mommy and a Daddy! I have a Mommy and a Daddy. I don't have a brother, George, though. But I have a cat! You have TWO cats. They run from me a lot....
Amy:(thinks) Here we go...
Ryan: ...and so I told Daddy "It doesn't go in there...here, let me show you," and I showed him and then...
Amy:(thinks) Does he do it just to hear the sound of his own voice?!
Ryan: Hey...do I have anything up my nose?
Amy:(thinks) Maybe if I stop making eye contact? It works with Velociraptors.
Ryan: Fine then...I guess you don't want to talk.
Please Note: The conversation was not the actual one that took place...obviously. In fact, it was mostly Ryan saying "what's that," over and over again and pointing at the telly. But the look on dear Amy's face inspired me.
After two and a half years in a long-distance relationship, I packed my life of 29 years into 21 boxes and moved to England to marry and be with my husband, Matt. Now I'm reveling in the youth of my 30s in Great Britain, supply-teaching in primary schools near Birmingham and enjoying newlywed life, being a mommy, and all the surprises they bring!
