I Talk. It's What I Do!
Our daughter is really chatty. She talks all day long about everything and nothing and anything in between. It is a running monologue on any topic imaginable and sometimes she'll pause long enough for me or my husband or her brother to respond. It's adorable and cute, but frankly it is getting to be exhausting. So, today I was trying to get ready for a birthday party we were going to and my daughter was following me from room to room going on and on. I finally just said, "Sweetheart, please let mommy finish getting ready. Can you please just stop talking for a few minutes while I get dressed." She looked at me and with all the seriousness in the world said, "Mom, I talk. It's what I do." I could not hold the laughter in. A few minutes later as she followed me into the bathroom she repeated her previous statement and continued by saying, "Me and my daddy we just talk and talk all day long." Yes, they do!
