Kid Conversations

I'm watching my two nieces this week while their parents are in Germany.  Eva and Machara are the same ages as John and Gus.  They all get along pretty well.  I love listening in as they play.  This is what I heard today...

They were watching Spiderman.

Eva: "What's going on?"
John: "Well, you see..."
Eva:  "Oh, I know....what is that?"
John:  "It is..."
Eva:  "Oh, it is (rambles something)...what is going on?"

This went on for about 3 minutes

John:  "Eva, if you would just stop talking for a second I can tell you what is happening."
Eva:  "But I have a voice!"
John:  "Yes, but you need to put your voice on hold if you want to know the answer to your question."
Eva:  "What is that?"
John:  "OK, that is Spiderman's friend..."
Eva:  "Oh, I know, it's..."
John:  "Never mind Eva.  You seem to know it all.  Mom, why do girls talk so much?"

Mind you, this is coming from the kid who talks non-stop. This should be a fun week.
