We're playing the "Who can be silent the longest?" game. Noah is not good at this game, because it's so easy to make him laugh. His attempts to crack Sarah and me up only make himself laugh. Sarah, as it turns out, is surprisingly able to stop talking when she sets her mind to it. She actually beat me. I remember my mom introducing this game to my brother and me while we were on a family road trip to Colorado. I always thought she invented it, but now I'm thinking mothers have been doing this since the beginning of motherhood. Maybe Cain wouldn't have killed Abel if Eve had used it more often.
