DS1 3yo talks constantly. He repeats announcements individually to each person present until they acknowledge it.
TRAIN ANNOUNCER: the next station is Kew Gardens DS: nana, the next station is Kew gardens Nana: yes DS DS: mummy the next station is Kew gardens Me: mmmm DS: MUMMY! the next station is Kew gardens!!! Me: yes! Me to my mum: god that's getting a bit annoying Nana: yes you were exactly the same for years
So a huge apology to my parents for repeating myself over and over. It looks like I'm finally getting the punishment I deserved!
she started arguing about what she was wearing at 16 months & its gone on from there - I did quickly learn that best bet was to teach her what was weather & and occasion appropriate, but it STILL doesn't always stop the "Clothes Wars" - she's now 8 & some of the outfits she will pull together can be verging on mini streetwalker scary - & then the tears & tantrums begin
apparently I was even worse - it did end up being my trade profession though, so will be interesting to see where she end up
Being a know-it-all and refusing to take advice, even when it's in my own best interests...
It is very humbling now to dread the thought of my own dc being like this and NOT listening to all the sage advice their mum has to pass on, from the experience she has gathered over the past 40 years or so...gulp.
I have even contemplated apologising to my parents now in retrospect. Will than undo the karma??!
