Keep Talking

July 9, 2007

My kid doesn’t stop talking.

To me.

To her teacher.

To anyone.

And you know what?

I love it.

But I just know others think she’s a little attention hog. Especially when she says, “Hey, Look AT MEEEEEEEeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!” While she’s playing, reading, eating….in public.

But they are dead wrong!

She has just found her voice. Literally and figuratively.

You see, I know what she was like last year at this time when she wouldn’t dare open her mouth in public or talk to anyone even if I said it was okay!!! To the point where I had Early Intervention come over to get her evaluated. (Turned out she wasn’t developmentally delayed so they advised me to go through her public school once she started.)

And I planned to do just that, until she blossomed…And she became a chatty, outgoing and dare I say, confident girl.

That’s why I love that she talks.

All the time.

Yes, it does get monotonous once in a blue moon…Yes, she repeats herself often. Yes, after a full day of chit chat…all I want is peace and quiet and maybe a solo spot in the bathroom.

But I’ll be damned if I ever tell her to stop.

Her vocabulary and understanding of the English Language at her age is almost freaky. Her use of wonderful words in their correct context, her joy in communication, her love and excitement for learning and reading…

I could never stop that.

I love it. I love it all.

And I am so proud of how far she’s come in just one year.

As Farfallina would say…”This is phenomenal!”

And you know what…she’s right.

Keep talking Girlie, I’m all ears.



  1. awwwwwwwwwwwwwww.

    Sweetpea’s phrase is “that is aMAzing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”


    Glad she has found her voice.

  2. You are exactly right. Don’t tell her to stop.

    You’ve been waiting for this – and now you are getting to enjoy it.

    It is indeed “phenomenal.”

  3. Sweet! I feel the same way. It actually pisses me off when I hear parents shushing their kids for squealing in delight. It could be SO much worse, ya know?

  4. So awesome that she blossomed!!

    Becca likes to say “That would be cool … yeah that would be cool if we did that!”

  5. It is like hearing an angel isn’t it?

  6. good for her! I never got over my severe shyness as a child until my late teens!

  7. Great to meet ya!!! Great blog.

    I know what you mean. It’s wonderful to hear what they say – if only they had a mute button or something sometimes LOL.

  8. Isn’t it super cool when that happens!

    Yay FA!

    Oh hey can you email me and invite to your old site. ladirig@yahoo.com

  9. Oh for crap’s sakes Janet!!!! LMAO. And the funny part was I was trying to access your old blog and it said I needed to be invited. I was feeling all shunned and stuff!!!


    (Well I still love your blog).

  10. My mom has said the same thing about my niece and nephew and that I was exactly the same!! It blossomed into a huge love of speech and debate in jr. high and high school and public speaking now. I LOVE to talk in front of large groups.

    Don’t ever hold her back. It’s a great way to learn and grow.

  11. You do know that this is a tribute to you as a parent, don’t you? So enjoy it for her, and enjoy it for you 🙂

  12. The Mayor never stops talking either. Oh, the great yammering.

  13. I love that you’re like that. My mom was the same way and I hope to be, too.


  14. She so great! And you’re a great mom!
