'Tis More Blessed Giveaway and Mr. Conversationalist




 Every Friday in December, as part of the 'Tis More Blessed Giveaway, hosted by Milo James Fowler, I am giving away free copies of both of my books (That Mama is a Grouch, and That Baby Woke Me Up, AGAIN) to one lucky winner.  Even if you already have copies, feel free to participate, because they could make great gifts for anyone you know.  Just leave a comment below for a chance to win.  These are hard copies of my book, and I am willing to mail them anywhere in the world.  Be sure to visit Milo to find out who else is participating and have a chance to win their books as well.


And now for the story:

My nine-year-old son likes to talk to everyone he meets.  He'll go up to random strangers and just start asking them about their day.

Yesterday, I took the boy to get a hair cut.  When it was his turn, he sat in the chair and yappity yapped about whatever was on his mind at the moment.  The stylist, an Asian man, interjected a comment or two.

After we had left, Bubba commented, "Mama, I didn't understand a word that guy said. But since I'm so good at talking, it didn't matter!"

    1. That would be good, otherwise they'll be talking at the same time, and nobody will be listening!

  3. That is my gift also. As a kid I talked to everyone also, never met a stranger. One day in a department store I went up to talk to a man that was standing near the mens section. I said hello to him but he never talked back, his head was turned a little away from me, When I walked around to see his face I saw that he was a mannequin!

  6. My oldest son was a talker when he was younger. People used to call him the mayor of our little town because everyone knew him.

  13. In kids, being chatty and out going is a sign of confidence and security. So you must must be a successful parent!

  16. LOL! It's always incredibly hard for me to start a conversation with someone I know well, so I can't even imagine conversing with strangers so easily like this!
