I don't know how many of you have a LO that has the gift of gab, but I do. I am not talking about vocabulary, talking earlier than others, or babbling, I'm talking full-on continuous conversation, a barrage of questions with no stop, no pause and no end in sight. Yes folks, I have a 5 year old with no off button. I know, I know, he's learning. I've heard it before. Countless times. But, can't momma get a moment of silence every once in a while? Pretty please?! At the beginning of 20% SAHM-ness (aka summer vacation) I thought it was cute, entertaining even. Now...not so much. It's like nails on a chalkboard, slowly driving me insane. Some days I handle it well, fielding question after question calmly and with some level of humor. Other days, my patience wears thin and I find myself not listening to him, saying that I don't know or deferring to another adult in his life (guilty). Sometimes, after the thousandth "but why" I want to scream "Mommy has no fricking clue, okay?!" or a less classy "shut the hell up". Kidding. Kind of. My little man is a great kid. He is a kind little boy who is friendly and fun to be around. I'm not complaining about his personality. But the questions...oh....THE.QUESTIONS. Lord have mercy. If anyone has some sanity-saving tips on how to get through this stage (hopefully) please leave a comment. Otherwise, if your LO isn't at this lovely milestone yet...consider this your formal warning. Gather your patience, take a deep breath and be ready. It's quite a ride.
Mr. Personality himself :) Can you believe this adorable little boy tests my patience like no other?!
