Who You Talkin To?

Chelsea- who am I talking to you ask?, well as a matter of fact it is the same person who is asking the ridiculous question... Me! This mysterious behaviour was brought to my attention while driving with the kids.

Ty- mum who are you talkin to?
Me- no one I am singing
Ty- no, you are definitely talking!
Me- good point

So I got to thinking, and I do talk to myself and quite frequently, we- meaning me, myself and I- discuss the mysteries of children and why they never seem to listen and why I still have 40 too many pounds on my bones, why everyone wants to be blond this time of year, why armpit hair never grows in the same direction, why the women's shelter needs to build an addition, why I had ants tattooed on my leg, why I was blessed with such a wonderful husband, why a 12 year old is in the back of a police car, why money doesn't grow on trees or in the ground, why some women have a baby and look like they never even went through puberty, why it feel like no matter how much I do I always feel behind?

Todd- well he has been talking to the pipes and more specifically drywall! The kitchen in our place is being redone by... Todd. I call throughout the day because I miss him and I am sure my mum calls to check on him, but for the most part of this past week he has been chit chatting with all things kitchen remodeling.

Rylie- I am convinced she is a fairy in disguise, you know how Tinkerbell can go from sweet and light filled to a raging ball of fire? Well that is Rylie Dawn Alwyn! Alwyn means, friend of the elves and it suits her to a tee!! A couple weeks ago while I was putting her to bed she said " mum, I can't see the fairies tonight, where are they?"

Oliver- He talks on any and every phone he can get his hands on! He loves phones and has a rather Donald Duck voice. We finally have a few more solutions for his horrid Eczema, so hopefully in the next two weeks his raw flesh will not be so raw anymore.

Ty- Ty loves to talk, he inherited it quite naturally from none other than myself! However lately he has taken quite a liking to singing! The Primary president told me how stupendously amazing he did and how he knows all the words! When I asked him why he likes singing so much he said " I love to sing because it helps me learn more".

Olivia- Cassius, Cassius, Cassius. Olivia loves her cousin Cassius and loves to say his name, she has yet to master mum, mommy or mom. At this point in my motherly career I would take any mmm sounding word, but no for now she will stick to Cassius!

* Due to the sheer and utter chaos at my home I have zilch, nadda, no clue where my camera is, so when I locate it I will take pictures of my arms which have been nominated to be the new National Flag for Zambia! I will also record Ty singing 18 Wheeler and Olivia saying Cassius.**

** If you currently only talk to other people I highly recommend you talk to yourself as you control the whole conversation which of course is the main reason I do it!***

Andy NEVER stops talking to himself! The funny thing is when I really stop and listen the conversation between the two really does make sense. I love to see your kids and blog. Good luck with the remodel.

lol, I was going to say the same thing as my mom. I love it when Andy is around because he makes me feel OK about talking to myself. I really is good therapy. Thanks for the post. You know I've been waiting for it:)
