The 8th Wonder? of the World

***image source***

Why is it when you talk to your children they don't hear a word you say and you have to repeat yourself 10,000 times a day?

But as soon as you are having a private conversation.. BAM! they could hear the wings of a butterfly.

Master K, 8 years old, has an uncanny knack of doing just that. Yesterday while we were talking about my father's tow ball cover that he left at our house, Master K came in halfway through the conversation.

"Who's was it?" he says
"Poppy's." I replied
"Poppy's what?"

...arghh.... make that 10,001 :)
