Venting a Bit

I just need to vent a bit today. I love Lauren, Lolo, Lo, whatever, more than anything, but will she ever just shut her mouth? I'm not even joking, she has not stopped talking, actually, kind of yelling ALL DAY LONG! She began her day in her bed talking, and it has continued throughout, stopped a little during nap time (only an hour and a half) and then started up again when she woke up. And I have no doubt that it will continue solidly until she talks herself to sleep, which she does every night.
I was EXTREMELY happy when Bryan got home, because that meant I got to come downstairs and work in the peace and quiet of my little office - doors closed - and my Ipod. He came down a few minutes ago and asked me what was wrong with my daughter because she just won't stop. He's only been home for an hour!!!!
I don't think people understand that it is honestly like one continuous sentence after another, with barely enough time in between to take a small 2-year old breath. Today she has told me about how B Mya needs to take a nap about 50 times, about Hobby Lobby (I think she just likes to say the words), Daisy, Daisy sit, Daisy sit down, Daisy sit down now, needing a kiss from Daisy, needing a kiss from me, needing a kiss from B Mya, Daddy's working, Daddy's home, doggy needs her brush, doggy needs to take a nap, doggy needs a b, Mommy's cleaning, Mommy's still cleaning, Mommy's cleaning the floor, wanna help Mommy with the laundry, here's the laundry, I want some water, I want some water, I want some water Mommy, thank you for my water........and it just goes on and on and on. The above really is a good example of about 30 seconds listening to her. I know she gets this trait from me, I'm not fooling myself here, and it makes me feel for my parents - sorry guys, could you let me know when it stops? Lauren, I love you, but could you PLEASE just be quiet long enough for me to gather my thoughts?????
I'm trying to remind myself that I am VERY lucky to have such a smart little girl, and at least I can understand every single word she's saying. I was told that it's a really good sign that she talks so much at such a young age, and I am very proud of her vocabulary. It would probably be harder if it were gibberish that I had difficulty deciphering. I really do think she just says every thought that enters into her curly little head. Oh well, I guess it's better than a kid that vegges in front of the TV and doesn't say a word, right?

I am rollign around laughing!!! I feel for you. I think sometimes I am the worst mother because I can't take Ady's tlaking anymore!!! Boys are so different. Just wait until Mya does it too. Then they will fight over airspace. Or maybe they'll talk each others ears off. It's even harder when it's in the car. hahahaha, I love that little chatter box.

I'm hoping for your sake that she'll stop talking to you and start talking to Mya once Mya gets old enough to play with. At least she talks. My girl just screams and whines at me.

You'll learn to block it out. Sometimes Shawna will say something to me and then she'll say "You are not even listening" and I have to try and convince her I am even though I'm truly not! It's a little sad now that she's older and realizes I'm not paying attention! She was somewhat like Lo is, but I did have the 2 so they talked a lot together and would leave me alone, you'll have that soon (too soon probably!) And now I just wish I had some of that back, Annie couldn't care less if she never talked to me or spent time w/ me for that matter! Teens, ARGH!!

I totally feel your pain! Dax asked me the other day why I just say "Uh huh. Uh huh" all the time. I wanted to tell him, "It's because if I actually listened and responded appropriately to everything that comes out of your mouth I would have ended up in the nuthouse a long time ago!"

The comments just add to how funny this situation is. I just tune it out most of the time. It's easier when some of them start going to school. Then they don't want to talk to you any more. Good luck. Maybe crank the music up and then she will start singing to whatever is on instead of just talking.

Brock knows exactly how you feel! You can ask him, but first you need to separate them so you have a chance to talk!

I tell Boston to read Elsie a book or sing her a song.

She is just making up for all the years she isn't going to talk to you at all when she is a teenager. It's all about balance.

It never ends....not with a girl. Although, it does get sassier. Good Luck!
