The things we hear

In our house we hear lots of interesting words, sentences, and conversations that we take in stride, not even thinking how they might sound to someone outside our little world. Every now and then, though, I stop to think about how weird some of our conversations actually are.
Case in point–I bet you didn’t hear any of this at your dinner table last night:
“Catherine, please stop chanting ‘pee-pee,’ and Elisabeth, we don’t howl at the dinner table.”
“Elisabeth, get your fingers out of your drink.”
“No, sit in your seat, not on the table.”
“Oh, he just decorated his shirt with clam chowder.”
“Elisabeth, get your fingers out of your drink.”
“Wow, that fruit looks really good in your hair, bud! Better than gel!!”
“Elisabeth, get your fingers out of your drink.”
“Oh, yuck. Honey, you can’t open your mouth until after you swallow your milk!”

Just a few examples. Anyone with little kids could give more. And these were just what we said, and it doesn’t even count all the funny things they say each and every day. Oh, the things you never imagined you’d hear on a regular basis. Having kids changes everything.
