    Default do you chatter to your child while in the trolley?

    So this morning i was out doing some shopping with DD 20mths in the trolley. I always talk to her and maybe sing a little song/she will sing a song while we walk around and shop. Im prett sure most mum's do this?...right? Anyone who overhear's us usually just smiles politely at us and goes about their business. But not today, not this particular woman.
    She turned around, tapped me on the shoulder and said "i think you have been watching too many cartoons!" and she was serious! I didnt not get the impression she was making a mock of me.....WTF?! i was showing DD all the diferent colours of shorts on display! what business is it of hers?! Stupid woman!
    I just said, whatever and walked off. Grrrr!!!!!!!!!
    Now i feel like im abnormal for talking to dd about what she's loooking at, making up songs ect while we stroll around in the trolley. DD is so used to it, she babbles away.....Argghhh !!!
    Rant over.

    Not abnormal at all. I shopped for half the day with my 28 month old son yesterday and we didny stop talking the entire time, from colours to shapes to things he can see, counting, singing songs etc.

    I don't pay attention to what other people think, it makes me and my son happy to do what we do and I don't care what others think

    I would of said "clearly you don't have a life".

    I absolutely talk to DD while shopping. We discuss everything! I make everything a game and fun and if anyone is pathetic enough to make snarky comments, than I just feel sorry for them. As they are just jealous they aren't as awesome.

    Yes, I chat to DS when he is in the trolley. I don't sing in public because my singing voice is vile!

    This world is full of fools and trolls, and you unfortunately met one today.

    Don't change how you interact with your DD over the comment of a random loser. It sounds like you have a lovely little thing going on together

    I talk to my 3yo even when she's not in the trolley.

    A couple of weeks ago I was standing in the sugar aisle saying "Now, does Mummy need icing sugar? Mummy can't remember". And then I looked down and remembered that she wasn't even with me

    Nobody made any comments though, I think it was more like "stay away from the crazy lady talking to herself"

    Geez what a weirdo! My DD is only 3 months and I chatter away to her constantly!

    I had a woman stop me on the street the other day and tell me to make sure my baby was breathing in the ergo. Pfft.
