As I sit here, I'm listening to my 15 month old daughter talk to herself in her crib. She's been in there an hour. She SHOULD be sleeping.

I could hear her drop her blanket, pacifier, and stuffed bear out of her crib one by one. Each followed by a loud "uh-oh". I could hear the scrapping noise of her pulling the picture frame off of the bookcase next to her and into her crib. Its a picture of her daddy and I. And now she sits jabbering and chattering to the faces in the picture... when she should be sleeping.

It's times like this that I think about how a like we can be sometimes. How we both seem to have so much to say even when no one is listening. A good 70% of my day is spent talking to a toddler... who in turn talks back... in her own language. And while I love every minute of it some days I find myself talking to...MYSELF... just to have a little adult interaction! I was having one of those conversations one day when I realized that maybe if I typed to a blog instead it wouldn't be quite so weird. HA! So here's to my attempts at normality and sanity. Where ever they are. Perhaps someday we'll be friends!

Love the sounds of interaction that is my life daily! And btw, normality and sanity are over-rated and a figment of of the imagination. :>)

This coming from a mom of a 3 1/2 and 2 year old. ( if you are interested.)

I also know what you are talking about. I spend my day talking to a 3-year-old and a 15-month-old. Sometimes it's not very intellectually stimulating!
