Is there ever any silence? A vent, I guess...

Okay, so today, has been an interesting day. K was up at 4-5am this morning after only about 5.5 hours of sleep and both DH and I slept through our alarms, so V didn't go to daycare. K refused to nap in the morning, despite his early wake-up and V only slept like an hour at naptime.

We watched some TV, did some colouring, went to the park, we made some muffins, we played cars, read stories, you know, all the regular daytime stuff. DH is working nights, so I just did dinner and bedtime by myself, which is always stressful. K refused to be put down and cried the whole time I was getting V to sleep, V tried some of his nightime antics, but they are now both sleeping(well K is in my lap, but asleep, so I'll take it) and I'm embracing the quiet because, that was the one thing that got my nerves today, the constant chatter!

V doesn't stop talking, EVER!!! It's non stop, all day long. He's very verbal, has a great vocabulary, surprises me everyday with all the new words and sayings he's aquired. But there are times when I wish the kid would shut the eff up!

Like during storytime, he's all like "Hey Ma, what's that?" "Hey Ma, look at his feet." "Hey Ma, it's an owl! Hoo!Hoo!" "Hey Ma, doggy, chien. Woof" Or the constant barrage of questions, What are you doing? What's that? Who's that man? Where's the train/firetruck/police car/tractor?

It makes me crazy! Am I am bad mom? Is that bad to say? I can't wait for K to start talking so they can chatter together and leave me alone tongueold But knowing my kids they will both me vying for my attention and there will be two little voices going "Hey Ma!"

Feels good to get that out....where's the wine?

If you are the head of the bad mom committee then sign me up too.

The noise. The noise. The constant, uninterupted noise. There is nothing else quite like it in the world. Somedays i feel like I am holding my breath in all day and as soon as the silence aka sleeptime envelopes the household at night - I can exhale again...

I feel you're pain. *Hugs*

Oh man, V totally sounds like my guy too. He doesn't stop talking all. day. long. Seriously, he'll even talk straight through a movie and everything is a question, why? why? why? I love him to pieces but some days I am seriously counting down until bedtime so I can have a little peace and quiet! We're all human, pass me some of that wine. smile

Hate to tell you but no, it just gets worse frown Anna NEVER EVER stops talking. Sometimes I tell her to just stop because I can't deal with the constant 'mommy...' anymore.

So I guess I'm a bad mom too! wink

Ugh I hear you!! You know that Family Guy clip where Stewie is all "Mommy? Mommy? Mommy? Mommy? Momma? Momma? Momma?".. I feel like that's my real life when I watch it.

LOL! Emmy, I think of that clip all the time too rofl

He actually comes over the me and says "Mama, turn!" and turns my head to face him, if he thinks I'm not paying enough attention, especially after barrage of Mamas! and Hey Mas!

Yup. DD is like Stewie. Broken record until I repeat what she says, or in her mind, acknowledges that she said something. Drives me crazy!!

I hate it when she does that during story time!

Anyway - most of the times, I try to enjoy her chatter but there are days where I just want to taper her mouth shut. Sign me up to the bad mommy club too.

Sounds like your day is a lot like mine but without the addition of an infant. In the past five minutes I have heard "I want my bob the builder pjamas, where are my pj's, no I don't like them, where are my bike jammies, what's that guy doing, Daddy no thank you, I want some milk, I'm cuddling with mommy, no like my pants on," and don't get me started on the fact that it is 9:25 and my kid is not yet in bed! The noise just never stops. If it's not his mouth it's his toys that are loud or banging and crashing into something.

sorry, stupid question but why can't your DC go to daycare if you slept through your alarms? do they have a cut off time for drop off?

I remember wanting so bad for my DD to start talking so she could call me mommy. I just wanted hear that word soooo badly. Well now it's driving me NUTSO!!

Just like Emmy's clip it's constant.all.the.live.long.day!!! Now she's asking me "why" all the time. She's 2!! I thought that didn't start until at least 3!! LOL
