words

With three girls around, there can be, well... rather there always is a lot of talking. In fact, if three girls are in the same room with me, there are most likely three conversations aimed at me. I must admit that most of the time, none of them are being received, at least not with total clarity. Words come and bounce, some are covered by others. Some wait patiently or not for a response. I find myself saying, "Sorry, what did you say?" repeatedly.
Recently I read a blurb about how we are only capable of hearing and understanding one conversation at a time, that our female brain is better at blocking out one conversation, in order to hear another, even if it is across the room.

A favorite quote from today:
Avery:"There is nothing that I don't really care about."

Hahahaha! My nieces always talked at the same time and I just nodded from one to the other, trying to carry on a conversation. Your dad always said he wouldn't do three conversations at once -- yet he had to do it. Once he realized it was happening, he lost it. And your daughters always have such interesting things to say!
