Eavesdropping Spud

Category: Being Parents

Spud loves a little bit of a chatter whist having her meals, and being the natural chatterbox that she is, she takes every single opportunity to yak. That usually means, talking with her mouth full – even if she would be talking to herself. And at which point, we would tell her that she should not be doing that because it is impolite.

With her Papa sitting next to her and feeding her one evening, Spud did what she usually does while eating – talking with her mouth full. Even though I was sitting at the same table, I was busy with Squirt and was oblivious to the entire conversation. It was only later that Silver Bullet repeated the following conversation to me:

Silver Bullet: Don’t talk with your mouth full. It’s impolite.

Just when Silver Bullet was about to give her another bite, the little imp said, in Dutch,  “Nee nog niet. Ik wil eerst praten!”
“Not yet. Want to talk first!”
I could only laugh my head off in amusement. The little imp is catching on fast!

And here’s a moment with her Oma from our last visit. Come to think of it, “loves a little bit of a chatter” is an understatement. Actually, Spud, like her father, is quite the chatterbox and the only time she is quiet is when she is sleeping.
