Has anyone else dealt with the stage of constant narration with their kids? I swear it seems like from the minute NB's feet hit the floor in the morning until she falls asleep at night her mouth is constantly working. She narrates every little thing she is doing while doing it. It's a fight to get her to eat anything because she is too busy talking, talking, talking to chew anything. Between the never ending spouting about what she is doing and what she is thinking, and the "remember when" conversations, and the animal noises....the only time the child is quiet is when she is asleep. (unless she is having a particularly vivid dream, then she sleep talks too)
I'm at the end of my rope. I hate to just tell her to hush. I know that in a few years I will have to pry her jaws open to get her to tell me about her day at school... but seriously? How do you deal? How do you get a few moments of quiet in which you yourself can concentrate or think? Telling her that "mommy is trying to concentrate right now" only deters her as long as it takes me to say it and then she is off and running again.
I guess more than anything, I just want to know if other kids do this too. Do they grow out of it? *laughs*
