Boys and Girls

We had friends to dinner.  It was lovely.  They have four kids - two girls and two boys - all younger than ours.  Everybody got along and played nicely and behaved themselves and ate their dinners and picked up the toys.  It was all good.

But here's the thing...

My boys  Never. Stop. Talking.

Oh my goodness.  I know, I know, I can look at the bright side.  They're not shy.  They're articulate.  "We have a language-rich environment."

Yah.  A barrage of language.

Everybody says that girls talk more than boys.

If that's true, I pity their mothers.

I'm going to bed now, more to rest my ears than my body.

I have two of those! My girls never, but never talked like these two do. In the car, I sometimes have to let no one in the front just to concerntrate!
The trick is~ can we keep them talking into their teens and beyond? Keep us posted!

My son is non-stop talking as well. I like it! :)

Just for the record, my three-year-old son talks just as much as his exceedingly verbose eight-year-old sister, while my six-year-old is perfectly content to mind her own business quietly. And, yes, there are days I need to rest my ears, too!!!

I have only 1 boy, and he's a talker too, so I can't say much about who talks more, boys or girls. However! I can say that this gave me a good laugh this morning, and that's a great way to start the day. Thanks!

LOL! We must have a "language rich environment", too! And my son can beat all three of his sisters (put together) in the talking department.

I have one boy who doesn't talk much, and the other one (ironically, the one who doesn't hear well) won't STOP talking. Seriously, Nolan is NEVER quiet. Unless he's asleep. Then he's quiet. Which is why I LOVE nap time!
