I am very grateful to be a family that doesn't swear. Abby is repeating so much of what I say these days and it can be so funny. Most of the time. She's taken to using the phrase "you're driving me nuts" and today as I was hanging ornaments she said to me, "mommy look at you go!". So you can imagine what she would pick up were our language not so . . . clean.
But what else can I expect? After all, they are with me 24/7 and they do have talking genes -- both from the Whittacres and from myself. William is already proving to be quite the talker himself and when Megan's not talking she's singing. Her singing reminds me a little bit of what's-his-name in Elf: made up words and pretty much off key. But I love hearing it and listening to what she creates. She may never be a vocalist but I think a composer is still a possibility!
