Silent – Day 13

by Jen on January 18, 2011

I’m a big fat liar if I say I’ve been silent today.  Yesterday and today, I was a hoarse, squeaky, strained, airy blabbermouth.  I’m paying for it tonight too.  I deserve it, I suppose.  I feel like I’m silent – sort of like I diet.  I have the “I’ll start that tomorrow” mentality at the moment.  This crap is for the birds.
I’m silent tomorrow.  Hear me????  SI-LENT!  (I have to make these promises to someone other than myself, as I’m clearly as accountable as a two year old.)  Know who IS accountable???  Casey.  Casey and her Silent Support Group (minus Olivia, who was clearly napping).  
Their sign reads:  Our Mom asked us to be SILENT in your honor and we just laughed at her!
I could stare at them all day long.  How I wish we were neighbors, so I could have them over for messy projects so their mother could watch The Young and the Restless like she used to.  
Casey and I were e-mailing back and forth today about different baking challenges we were going to take on in the coming months, and I began to daydream about a group baking project with her brood.  I imagined using the icing gun to squeeze gobs of pigment stained frosting into their tiny and eager little mouths when their mother had her back turned.  We would giggle and try to hide our secret from Casey, only to be discovered when she noticed their frosting stained tongues.   Who could love those little brats?  They are the busiest, sweetest, funniest little people in the world.  And, I am fascinated by them.
