My brain is fried.
"Mama, Mama what's that? What that right there?"
"A picture." (I couldn't really see it, it was a tiny imprint on a book cover)
"No, I said what's THAT right here. In the circle. What's that? What's that, right there? Right there?"
"It's a picture." (I've stopped trying to explain things in detail. It seemingly goes over her head)
"No, I asked you about that, right there. What's that right there? That little thing right there. What's that? Mama, mama, mama, what's that?"
"Michaela, I already told you what it is."
"No, no, no, Mama, it's right here, RIGHT HERE!"
"Michaela, please hush, I already told you what it is"!
"Mmmmm, errrrrrr. I just want you to tell me what it is. What is it Mama? Look it's right there. "
"Michaela, do you know what it is??"
"It's a diamond. A little diamond. It's a DIAMOND, Mama! Yeah, a diamond. Look Libby! What's this? What's this Libby..........."
Rhetorical questions. That's what I deal with ALL DAY LONG....
"Mama, what color is that?"
"YOU'RE RIGHT! IT'S BLUE!! You're right Mama. It's blue. GOOD JOB MAMA!! What color is that? That one, Mama. What color is it?"
"Michaela, do YOU know what color that is?" (I've learned a little of how to get out of the run-around)
"IT'S GREEN! I'm right! It's green Mama! I like green. Green. Mmmm, hmmm, it's green."
But this doesn't stop. FOR HOURS. The only time she's not talking is when she's sleeping (and maybe eating, maybe), and thank God, she takes little naps throughout the day. In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if the incessant talking is what tires her out so much.
I could use a few naps myself...
How to feel like a hypocrite though. Here I am one day sad because she can't talk to me, and the next day irritated because she won't stop talking to me. And I am honestly flustered. Especially since it starts at 6 am, when I'm still sleeping.
I guess I won't win "Mother of the Year" feeling this way. Yet......how normal is this?!? Am I allowed to be annoyed?
I guess when it comes down to it, I'll handle it like this: I've decided that I don't like "Abnormal".......on BOTH sides of the spectrum.
And neither do my ears.
