This is quite funny, My daughter had delayed speech and has rec'd speech therapy since 20 months. Now she is 4 1/2 and talks non-stop all day long. Her words are clear and precise, and she speaks better then ever, but she won't be quite. She also is extremely bright and an only child. I love the fact that she speaks so well, but sometimes she talks to me so much my ears hurt. I read to her, play board games, go to playgroup and do as much as I can. We even have movie night, but she will talk through the whole movie non-stop. It is a mixed blessing and I'm so proud of her, but I get a headache and my ears ache sometimes. Does any other parent out there have the same situation and is this a 4 through 5 year old stage? Any decent & helpful suggestions, would be appreciated based on your personal experience.
