|Outside my office last week|
My kids are at the age now where they'd like to start calling people. Our relatives love that, but have no idea what my kids are talking about when they go into the minutia of DS games or everything princess Elsa ever said. We've hit upon the secret for giving my kids something to talk about with relatives though, and you can find it too on cable TV.
It's the weather channel.
They'll watch it for a half hour on a Saturday morning, and then make their phone calls.
"Hello Grampa have you noticed any coastal flooding?"
"Hi Auntie how are you doing with the lake effect snow?"
It's the cutest thing, and gives everyone a conversation they can participate in.
Talking about the weather is the oldest trick in the book, but it's working for us!
|They closed school early for this the other day...|
