Something Meaningful

The Husband and I were chatting on the phone. I usually call him up and bug him a few times during the day. I need to talk to an adult once in a while, and he usually is nice about my interrupting all that important legal work. The Girl is in a phase where she demands to talk to anyone on the phone, which is fine when it is Daddy or a grandparent, but a bit awkward when a stranger calls.

So after a few moments on the phone, The Girl took over possession and started babbling. First chattering normally with real words, but then she got a silly look on her face and commenced actual babbling. Since I don't want to take up too much time that could be used for important legal work, I prompted the child to say "good-bye or something meaningful." She said, "Bye, Meanie!"

I guess we're going to have to work on her vocabulary.


That sounds exactly like my household. Just substitute governmental work for legal work. It is nice to talk to an adult after dealing with the under 10 set.

And Justin said? (I imagine he got a big kick out of it.)
