Gates came into the living room where Josh and I were sitting. He proceeded to say: "Mom can I have some ear plugs for Christmas?"
Me: "Why do you want ear plugs for Christmas? " (I thought it was for shooting pretend guns or something because Josh had taken the boys to the Firing Range and he had to wear ear plugs. Little did I know what he was going to say next.)
Gates: "Because Beck talks too much and I get tired of hearing him talk."
Josh and I cracked up. Beck for the longest time didn't say a thing. In fact, when he was a year, I had him checked because I was worried he was delayed in talking. I was wrong. The lady tested him and said he was actually advanced. HA! However, since then, the dude talks non-stop. I mean all the time. Ear plugs would be nice sometimes. Silly Gates. Silly Gates. I do think Santa might have to leave a pair just for laughs.
