Talking to the lo's
« on: January 25, 2006, 15:17:21 pm »
This might be a silly question, but in general I chat to Cate most days, teaching her about things, greeting her from naps, etc.

But some days I just don't feel like talking much (I was never a talker before I had her).

Do you think she is missing out on those days? Or does quiet time teach her things too?

Silly I know, but I've been thinking on this for a while now.

TIA!

I think a balance is good for them.  I talk alot to Samuel, but the same thing, if I'm having an 'off' day, I don't as much.  I try to cuddle him more those days.

Hi there:

I am not much of a talker and sometimes find it difficult to talk to my daughter, for the most part I do talk to her throughout the day, but there are times when I am quiet with her and I worry about that. During her activity time, I play with her and sometimes talk to her, there are times that I just observe her. I try to read/sing to her.

My daughter seems happy and content - and when my husband comes home from work, there is more talking amongst the three of us.

Love to hear from you.

Good question - I've wondered the same thing & never thought to ask about it!  It's good to know someone else feels the same way.  I like the pp's idea of cuddling more if you're not feeling as talkative that day.  :)
