Quiet Time

The conversation at our family dinners often consists of me telling Eric of every little thing the kids did all day.  Sometimes, Eric finds it hard to focus and tunes me out a little bit.  It's not that he doesn't care, it's just that it really is every little detail of our days.  The other night I was working really hard to get Eric to understand how amazing it was that Amos drew this picture all by himself, with no help at all from me:

**Nan and Pop close your eyes, this one is currently en route to your house**

I was saying to Eric, 

"Look, he wrote his name, Pop's name, and Nan's name all without any help!"

About this time Amos chimed in,

"Yeah, I colored this all by myself while Mama was sleeping!"

Woops.  My secret was out.  I may use Amos' "quiet time" for a little "quiet time" of my own =)  Apparently Amos is teaching himself to write, so it's not all bad.
