    Oh my gosh what an awful b*-%h!! I ALWAYS talk to my little ones. Especially whilst shopping! Any education professional/speech pathologist will tell you that is the perfect place to learn about numbers, colour, life skills etc... Dont let that witch put u off!! I hate when that happens, Im normally gobsmacked and never know how to react. People
    should praise parents who interact so beautifully with their children

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

    I've had someone look at me like I was an idiot and say "does she answer you back?" Because I talk to katelyn constantly or sing etc she hate being in the pram so I have to keep her engaged or she cries and wants to be carried.

    Some people are dumb. Maybe nobody spoke to them when they were little.

    Lol to the crazy lady talking to the icing sugar!!

    I talk to DD (15mo) all the time, especially when we're out. I point things out, tell her what we're doing, sing songs, giggle with her etc. I figure it's all part of learning about the world and communicating. If someone said something negative to me I'd just tell them I'm teaching my daughter and to please mind your own business.

    She's the weirdo.

    I talk to DS late at night when he and everyone else is asleep.

    Other day in Coles we were dancing Gangnam Style down the aisle. "Whoop whoop it's the milk aisle."

    Of course, perfectly normal imo. That woman sounds like a bitter, old busy body - don't worry about her and keep on chattering away.

    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"


    I have done this too.

    me - "Will we have lamb shanks for dinner, mummy loves lamb, would you like lamb shanks sweetie"

    random man beside me - "ummm, no I'm good thanks"

    People mock Farrah off 'Teen Mom' because she's always talking to Sophia about everything, but it's one of the best things you can do for your kid.

    Some people are just grumpy old busy bodies!

    I always sing and chat to DD, she is only 9 months, but I hope with all the chatting and having fun she is enjoying her time with her mummy!

    I wonder about the grumpy people whom give me looks or comment, I wonder if they hate everyone or just happy parents?!

    I think we are the normal ones.

    How rude!
    I always talk to the girls, even while they were too young to talk back. What's the big deal?
    Now they're older I get them to hold my shopping list and get things off the shelves.
