I know what your thinking. No overheard conversation can be good. Your right....it usually isn't. But it can be funny and sometimes change your perspective on things. Especially when it's your kids doing the talking.
I once overheard a conversation between my 4 year old son and his 5 year old cousin. We were visiting their home and I was passing by the bedroom where the kids were playing. It went something like this (you'll have to imagine the lisps):
"What wrong with your bed?"
"Ohhh, nuttin'. Sometimes I pee in there."
"What??!! Why?" My son was obviously horrified yet fascinated.
"You get in trouble?"
"Is it still wet?"
"Let's roll on it!"
I hurriedly interrupted.
Last week I passed by my son's room, his door was open and it was late morning already. His phone rang and he picked up. I paused before entering. This is what I heard:
"Hello? What? No, I didn't say that. No. No. I said you thought she was all right. No. I didn't. No, I don't like Lisa. Well, I don't like her like her. I just like her. No. Yes, you did. You did. You said it. Whatever. OK. By."
They had obviously worked it out. But I was left with plaguing questions.
What happened to my baby?
What happened to the promise he made me when he was 5 that he would hate girls forever?
When did my son start having these kinds of conversations?
And more importantly, who was this teenage temptress, Lisa?
All questions that remain unanswered. I must face facts. Somewhere along the line my son's voice changed and he now sounds like Froggy from Little Rascals. He is as tall as I am. He is not a baby anymore.
It just happened so fast.
As you can see from the more recent picture...he rarely thinks I am funny any longer...or cool. He'll get over it.
