    Default She never ever stops talking!!!

    DD turns four in a few months, and the constant never ending talking is just doing my head in lol Are they all like this? How do you cope? Does it ever stop? At least it can't get any worse...

    My 3.5 yr old is very similar, and my 2 year old isn't much different either

    Lucky for me they chat to each other... all.day.long.

    I don't think my almost 7yo has shut up since she started talking.

    And now she comes home from school and relays EVERYTHING that happened that day, including when Jude asked to go to the toilet because he'd eaten Mexican the night before and the teacher said there was no need to share that extra information..

    It's fun though right.

    Yeah, tiring as it is, I do love that she shares so much with me.

    I love hearing about her day at Kinder for eg.

    She does come out with some hilarious stuff!

    DS doesn't talk yet but I know a 3yo who literally never shuts up. I know what I'm in for!

    My almost 4 year is the same and it drives me bonkers.
    What makes it worse is i have to respond to everything she says or she gets really upset ('mummy, mummy why aren't you talking? I'm telling you something mummy') but then when i do start talking she tells me she wants peace and quiet and stop talking
    I don't know how she finds so many things to say....it's really tiring.
    She also asks a millions questions, most of which are so bizarre i can't think of a response.

    My now 4.5 year was talking complete clear sentences by 18 months, and its ony gotten worse since. No she never shuts up, no matter how many times i tell her to be quiet, or bribe her. The longest she has lasted is 3 seconds (not kidding). She even talks in her sleep!!! How do I deal? I have learned to drown it out lol. To me its just like background noise now. And DD2 is going the same way, although not as advanced as DD1 was.

    Oh the questions, yes, I get that too.

    Mummy, what would happen if we didn't have roads/houses/toys/arms etc etc? Mummy why do they call it an apple? Mummy why is that woman doing that?

    They are so random, and half the time I have no idea how to answer!!
