I'm a SAHM with 2 beautiful, smart kids. My daughter is 3 1/2 and my son is 1 1/2. My daughter is the MOST TALKATIVE kid EVER!! She always has a story to tell, or a song to sing, or a question to ask. She is talking from, no kidding, the minute she wakes up until the second she goes to bed. And even then she talks herself to sleep. It is constant, non stop all day long. The only time she is quiet is during naptime (for about 1-2 hrs.) and even then I have to listen to her upstairs talk and talk and talk until she falls asleep (could take an hour). How do I keep myself from going totally crazy???? I love her soooooooooooooooo much and she is sooooooooooo sweet. She never says anything bad (not usually anyway) but NOTHING makes her quiet. She watches TV and talks about the show she's watching, she talks along with the commercials. Coloring or artwork is even a vocal event. I can't talk on the phone (not even for a min.) I can't do housework without her following me around and asking questions or telling me a story. Holy Man, She's never quiet. By the end of the day, I'm mentally exhausted. Every comment, question, funny story or anecdote requires a response, answer, or equally funny story or anecdote. My brain is just tired. Sorry so lenghty. Mostly just venting, but does anyone else have a child like mine???
