Chatty Cathy

My daughter talks all the time. I'm so used to it and frankly most of it is so cute that it doesn't really phase me. However, today I was trying to do a zillion things at once and she was following me around just talking. About what, I don't even know. I said, "Sweetheart, mommy needs you to stop talking just for a couple of minutes until I can finish taking care of all this stuff."

She looks at me and says, "Mom, I talk. It's just what I do. So, I am just going to keep talking, okay?"

my 4 year old is the same way. Time out is being quiet for 4 minutes and he cant do it.

Hm, let's see. Maybe you have on your hands a future politician? A disc jockey? A career in public speaking? What nice company while you're working!

Jodifur, that's funny! Mine can't either.
Joanne, the way she negotiates everything I think she has the fine makings of a lawyer (or a politician). :)

Chatty Cathy was a popular nickname in our house growing up (along with an actual Chatty Cathy doll!).
I have to force myself to stop talking sometimes so my husband can work across from me!

Nancy, that sounds like me and my husband except that he is the one that talks a lot. :)
