Overheard In My House, Episode 6

It's Saturday morning. . . . . . the family is happily munching away on oatmeal pancakes, when I notice that the usual meal chatter has been replaced by an eerie silence.

I venture a comment:

Me:  "Everyone must be hungry this morning- it sure is quiet right now!"

Nathaniel:  "It's not in my head."

Emily:  "WHAT?"

Nathaniel:  "I'm talking in my head."

(If you know my son, you'd know that out of our five children - including 4 girls - you'd know that he is by far and away the most talkative of the bunch!  Which was why the silence was truly eerie. . . . )
