" And then you like aaaahhhhh... and I like... uuuuhhh? when you like aaaaahhhhh." says big sister, rolling her eyes and showing funny faces as she giggles herself to tears.
"Ha ha ha... You were like aaaaahhhh and then I was like uuuuuhhhh? Ha ha ha ha ha!!!" responses little brother opposite the table folding himself like a pocket knife from laughter and almost falling off the chair in belly aches.
"Ha ha ha! Wait, wait! Ha ha ha. You are like uuuuuhhh..." big sister continues the intelligent conversation... with the weird faces...
What is this exactly...??? This is dinner time in our house now a days. Yes we have dinners together. And yes, not everybody have dinners together but for us this is a priority. Dinner is family time. Dinner is an important time for us, this is where we re-connect after a day full of happenings. And these goonie chats between my oldest and middle child... I just don't get it at all.
Some days it drives me in sane and I force them to hush up and eat their food. Other days I let go and it is a joy hearing them laugh together instead of the normal squabbles. I can also remember the days when "I was like and you were like and then I was like when you were like...". Can you remember? I am not sure what the conversation is about but obviously they know... And this will past, right? They won't have goonie chats over the dinner table forever. Or?
Life with dinners together continues, with or without goonie conversations. Now we can sit outside when the weather actually allows, which is more and more often - YAAAAY! I still have hope that summer will arrive soon.
