Another thing both girls inherited from me is the uncanny ability (or curse) of talking ALL the time. Allison is especially bad; I swear she talks just to hear her own voice, because she NEVER stops! Tonight at dinner we had a couple of very funny comments from her.
First- she exclaimed "I'm higher than all of ya'll." Ok- we generally don't use the word ya'll, so I am not 100% sure where she got it. And the higher part was because she was sitting on her knees to be taller at the table. We certainly would not condone exclamations of drug use in our home :)
Second- Allison said that when she grows up, she wants to be a "big momma". I asked how many kids she wanted to have. Lauren said six, and Allison exclaimed- wait for it- 48. Lauren said "that would be a lot of responsibility having to take care of that many babies". Right you are Lauren, right you are!
There is never a dull moment around here!
