Toddler Brain?

I always talk to MC. It seems as though I feel the need to give the poor child a play-by-play of each and every move I make. I suppose I want her to be exposed to as much vocbulary and possible... or maybe I just get lonely sometimes and feel more social if I attempt to converse with my 18 month old whose only response usually includes "bahgadoo". (I'm being slightly sarcastic with that. I will take a moment to brag that MC now has a vocabulary of over 20 words....If you are one of those people thinking "oh no she didn't!" I say to you, oh yes I did. I counted every word my child can say and blogged about it. Just wait my friend, you will fall into the blog brag trap soon enough. )

Anywho, while this overly descriptive habbit might be great for a developing toddler, I have to wonder if it has become a detriment to my own mental health.

Today I talked to myself about making mac-n-cheese. Out loud. With no one home. Is that sad? I have to admit I'm a little concerned. Thoughts?

Ha ha ha! Welcome to the Mommy world...or Daddy too. You probably hum or sing Baby Einstein too . For us it was Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Disney's Robin Hood. Conversing with MC is the best way to develop her vocabulary and other mental abilities though even if she doesn't understand what you ate saying right now. Her little brain is sucking in that info and storing it away for later...
