I've noticed that the last few days I've been especially chatty. I don't know why. Maybe its because the weather hasn't been awesome and we've been cooped up in the house a little too long. It doesn't really matter why I'm chatty, just that I am. As most people know, Eric works from home. I'm constantly reminding myself that Eric is working and can't talk to me right now or watch whatever adorable thing Jack is doing. I can't seem to help myself. I find myself talking nonstop some days. Its always ridiculous, unimportant bits of information, but I can't save it for later when he's done working. Even when Eric falls into his tradition of nodding even when its completely obvious he has no idea what I'm saying...I keep talking. Friday I was in rare form. I had tons of useless information that I had to tell Eric right away. I was sure not to leave anything out. I even started to feel sick from the lack of oxygen because I had talked so much. Eventually, it was time for Jack's regular nap. Lately I've been taking advantage of this time to nap myself. I didn't realize until Friday that Eric must look forward to MY naps as much as I look forward to Jack's. For these reasons, a common sentiment in this house is...Thank goodness its nap time!
