My son will say - "crafts mommy" for example. I will say - sure we can do crafts, right after I finish feeding your brother (9 months old). He says - ok. Then 3 seconds later - mommy, crafts? Crafts? Crafts? Like every 3 seconds my 2.5 year old is repeating words. It doesn't matter what I say, it doesn't matter if I answer him or not, it doesn't matter what my response is, it doesn't matter what tone of voice I use, it doesn't matter who he is asking, he will keep repeating it. I know it is normal for them to repeat some things some times, but he does it a lot. I always talk calmly to him, but if it takes me 10 minutes to feed his brother, by minute nine I say - I will get your crafts in a minute, but this time I am close to the yelling stage. I do think he understands, his hearing has been tested and is fine, developmentally he is right where he should be, and we don't have any other issues with him. He is a mild mannered, sweet little boy. Any ideas or suggestions for my 2.5 year old repeating words?
