Re: Please stop repeating things!

We had that problem with my step son. It's maddening. One day his Montessori teacher knelt down and said "William, you don't have to repeat yourself all the time. Once is enough." in a very firm voice. He never did it again. Magic.

My two year old daughter is doing it now and she does not really understand the whole "once is enough" chat so I'm just kind of sitting here slowly losing my mind.

My DD will repeat herself until/unless I repeat her. I feel like a parrot.

Re: Please stop repeating things!

I'm so glad I'm not the only mama who's annoyed by her kids (sometimes)! I do the boring "yep" all the time! They ask questions they know the answers to, they repeat stuff, they milk jokes for every laugh. And I feel like a real jerk for this, but I hate when they remind me of things like I'm a child. My five year old said the other day, "Mommy, please make sure you don't forget Balon (his baby brother) in the grocery store. I'd hate for you to lose him." He said this in the same way we remind them not to lose the little toys they like to tote around when we go out. I know some may think that's cute, but in my mind I'm like, really kid? Cause I just forget my baby in random places alllll the time.

Re: Please stop repeating things!

My 2 year old is exactly like that. She is also the opposite of speech-delayed but has been doing it for about a year, ever since she started talking in sentences... I answer the question a couple of times then just say yes and act bored with it. And then I change the subject and talk about something different! I think they just like to hear themselves saying things!
