He wants to participate in the conversation.<br>
I know it it is mind numbing, though b/c I have a 5 year old who never stops talking and will repeat the same question if necessary. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eyesroll.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="roll">

I'm glad to know that Patrick isn't the only one doing this. He insists on telling me the details of his fantasy play over and over and over. Usually while I am busy doing something so I don't have the ability to focus on him and keep engaged with him. I think it is the same impulse as the one that had him holding on to my pants legs while I was doing housework when he was pre-verbal. Gotta love that he loves me, but I don't always love how he shows it.

Do you have my five year old? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
Last night I made the kids smoothies, and we had the following conversation:<br><br>
Ramona: Momma, my smoothie is too thick.<br>
Efram: Yeah, my smoothie is too thick.<br>
Ramona: I need some milk for mine.<br>
Efram: Yeah, I need some milk for mine.<br>
Ramona: Milk will make it smoother.<br>
Efram: Yeah, milk will make it smoother.<br>
Ramona: Momma, will get out the oat milk?<br>
Efram: Momma, will you get out the oat milk?<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/blahblah.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="blah blah"><br><br>

I don't have any suggestions, but I can see why it would drive you crazy. You have my sympathy!

"Is there an echo in here?" Word of the day calendar that contains redundant? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
That's better than my 7 year old who does this thing where he says,"mom?" and I start to answer a split second later and he's all "mommmmm!" Um, yea bud, give me a second to acknowledge you, not even a whole second, like half of one. Even better, just start talking, I'm the only one here, I'll know you mean me!
