Overheard

The following conversation went on for over 5 minutes in the back seat of my car today (I've edited it for brevity, but I'm fairly confident not much was lost in translation):

Evan: Dada?
Julia: No, Evan, Dada's at work.
Evan: Dada!
Julia: Dada's at work, Evan.
Evan: Da! Da!
Julia: Dada's not here, Evan. He's at work.
Evan: Dada?
Julia: No, Evan, Dada's at work.
Evan: Dada!
Julia: Dada's not here, Evan. He's at work.
Evan: Da! Da!
Julia: He's working, Evan. He's not here.
Evan: Dada!
Julia: Dada's at work.
Evan: Dada!
Julia: Dada's at work.
Evan: Dada!
Julia: Dada's at work.
Evan: heh.
(long pause)
Evan: Dada?
Julia: No, Evan, Dada's at work.

Both children were giggling hysterically the whole time, clearly sharing a joke. It's a good thing that they enjoy each other's company so much, I decided while listening to them, because if this conversation is their idea of a good time, no one else is going to want to spend much time with them...

We say Daddy's "bringin' home the bacon". I fear both of them will tell their friends that daddy's a pork engineer!

Sam and Matt have that conversation all the time. For them, it's often punctuated by Sam every so often getting exasperated and telling Matt to be quiet or shut up.
