bathtime stories

Lila has a lot of stories. Never mind that she cannot actually talk yet, she lets everyone know what she has to say. The checkout lady at Target, our waiter at lunchtime, the sketchy old men who without fail stop us in the grocery store and want to touch her face. For some reason, bath time makes her extra chatty. Maybe its all the singing we do in the bath. Maybe its that fresh feeling we get with newly soaped skin. Maybe she just had some pressing thoughts to share after listening to the new Justin Bieber song.
Sometimes when I am talking, my words can't keep up with my thoughts.
I wonder why we think faster than we speak.
Probably so we can think twice.
~Bill Watterson
