Being at home without a TV, I must be talking more when Devin is around. Either that or his wonderful family genes of ADHD have been more active lately. Sometimes I have to remind Devin to focus on me and what I am saying. If I don’t, frustration easily takes over. Usually I figure out that he isn’t really paying attention by his responses or sometimes lack of responses. Usually we both get a good laugh when a relatively simple conversation quickly gets confusing. Here is an example of one that we had about a week ago.
We were driving in the car listening to the radio and talking off and on when I said, "can you believe it? We only have about 8 more weeks." This statement was in reference to the time we had left her in California. Which to me wasn’t confusing because we had done the countdown/countup several times before. To my surprise and confusion, Devin responded quickly with, "till the baby comes?! Wait, how many weeks are you?….wait….what are we talking about?"
We both got a really good laugh out of that one.
