That is the number of times that Nana said “mama” on the very short trip home from dinner tonight (maybe 10 minutes total).And yes, I actually counted.

Is it any wonder I’m tired of hearing it?

The irony is I couldn’t WAIT until she started talking. Now, I long for silence.

It’s always a really odd exchange, full of nothingness.


“Mama! I’m just eating!”

“Mama, I’m playing with sister!”

“Mama, I’m drinking my juice”

I get a play by play of her every action. And, on the off chance I don’t hear her the first “mama”, it’s repeated over and over, each time louder and louder.

Just silence, please.

    It used to be that I couldn’t wait for my babies to walk and talk. Now I just want them to sit down and be quiet! Noah and Tessa do that, too, and Noah’s six already. When does it stop?

    I’m sorry you had a rough ride home. Maybe you can finally get some peace at bedtime?

    I don’t know if you’ve ever watched the show ‘Family Guy’ but there’s a classic moment when the mom is feigning sleep while Stewie the baby is trying to get her attention: “Ma. Ma. Ma. Hey, ma. Ma. Ma. Ma. Ma.” etc etc for a good, monotonous 30 seconds or so. Finally she shouts “WHat??!” and he replies “hi!” and runs off…he he, it was quite good.
