    Now they're older I get them to hold my shopping list and get things off the shelves.
    I name whatever we're getting in another language, I hope someday soon he'll be able to identify the things I ask for and help like your girls do.

    Whenever I have my god daughter I talk to her constantly and have done since she was born. It's a great distraction for her when she's tired and cranky. I talk to her if she's in the trolley, a carrier or the pram :-) and almost constant chatter in the car lol I'm sure she will hate me

    Everyone does it - or should do!! Talking to your children is how they learn language.

    Wait till you start rocking the empty trolley back and forth and see what funny looks you get then!!

    It's not only normal, but the opposite is abnormal. What kind of parent wanders around the shops with their children remaining completely silent and not engaging them at all?

    No one I know

    I think what you are doing is beautiful.

    This is one of those situations where you kick yourself afterwards when you come up with all the things you should have said to her!!

    Silly woman!!!!

    What you are doing is absolutely brilliant for her language development please don't stop doing it!!! I constantly chatter to both my boys to the point of where my 5 year old will say "Yeah I know mum you've told me that/showed me that before" LOL!!

    Oh and I am loving all the stories about crazy people talking to themselves in the shops. Makes me feel slightly less crazy when I rock a trolley full of groceries with no child in it!!!!
