Video Vault: The lost art of conversation.

For most meals, we either have the twins facing us as we feed them or we let them watch a little of the Curious George series on TV. But one day it occurred to me that we weren’t properly preparing them for the art of dinner conversation. So, for what I think was the first time ever, I had them face each other at lunch. The following video goes to show that there’s no ice that a little chit chat and footsie can’t break. And that lulls in the conversation happen at all ages.

I hope nobody finds out that I’ve watched this video 28 times.

Ooops. You said that out loud. Busted.

I can’t stop laughing at the way their conversation suddenly grinds to a halt.

I know! It’s like she’s looking at him thinking, You are in trouble for dropping your milk cup like that, and he’s saying, Whatchoo lookin’ at, lady?
And I am compiling a long list of things you did during your week off, to remind you how you worked like two dogs, as my grandma used to say.

Lara, I LOVED that video. First one I’ve seen of them I guess. Makes me feel like I’m there. Of course all the pictures are priceless but it’s nice to have a video now and then. You two do such a great job. Thanks!

And, by the way….It was Elaine who made that last comment…not Patrick. I noticed that Patrick and his old email address showed up above the comment window. Maybe that’s why I have not been getting my updates. I rejoined, but it said that my name was already on the list. I’ll keep trying.
