This afternoon (long before I started dinner) Munchkin was talking to himself while he was playing. I've never heard him do this before, but his solo conversation was in a form that sounded like he was reading a book. I didn't pay much attention at first -- there was something about going to the store and was the boy going to be good (hmmm, where did that come from?). But my ears really perked up when I heard Munchkin say, "I smell chicken that the mom's baking. 'Is it organic?' said the boy."
