Boys and Girls, Remix

Well, so much for stereotypes!  Glad to know my boys are not the only ones :0)  Oh, and Ruby, (from comment on post below), in the car... there are times I do have to MAKE them stop talking so I can drive safely.  Especially when they seem to think I can turn around and look at something!

There are moments I just have to say, "You may not be done talking, but I'm done listening for awhile."  And they seem to understand.  But my word... it's like having your whole life narrated, sometimes!

I think our next memory verse needs to be James 1:19,
My dear brothers, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry,
 You know... there's a good reason God gave us TWO ears and just ONE mouth.

Good point. Our heavenly Father is truly wise.

This should give you the direction you need to find my new bloggy residence.

Lol! My only boy is quite the talker too, but the girls can sometimes keep up with him.

Blessings!

I use the "two ears and only one mouth" very often! I also have to ask my kids to stop talking so that I can drive safely. I sometimes seem to be having 3 or 4 different conversations at once, and trying to drive, AND one child always wants music on in the car..!!

I have to say I am rilly, rilly happy my guys aren't chatty. (Not around me, anyway!) God knew I couldn't handle that. *grin*
