Diarrhea Of The Mouth

posted by Momo Fali on February 21, 2008

My kids talk…A LOT. My nine year old daughter started talking at 18 months and has been chatty ever since. It can take her ten minutes to tell a story that could’ve been told in three sentences. My husband and I often say that she would be an amazing FBI interrogator. Criminals would certainly cave in and divulge their secrets if they had to spend time locked in a room with her.

My five year old son rambles all day. He talks to his sister, us, and his toys. He sings while he plays, and is always making noise. He’s still at a stage where he asks questions constantly too. It’s enough to drive a Mother crazy.

Yesterday, I took my son to his doctor to have impacted wax cleaned out of his ears. His ear canals are very small, so they easily clog up and we’ve been making trips to the ENT every few months. When he starts asking, “What?” all the time, we know it’s time to schedule an appointment.

After the procedure was over and he climbed out of the chair, his doctor asked, “Does that feel better?”

My son replied, “Yeah!”

Then he realized that he could actually hear himself talk and said, “But, my mouth is SO LOUD!”

You’re telling me, kid. You’re telling me.

    Don’t you just love preschoolers? (most of the time) My son is 4 and he says the darndest things too. I’ve started writing them down because I want to remember them, but I have a terrible memory. Just the other day he informed me “Mom! I’m 4 years old and I have a DOG GONE pimple!” LOL, I was rolling!

  • Mimi aka pz5wjj


    And my kids suffer the same verbal diarrhea condition.

    I think they talk just because.

    I wonder if my kids have lost of wax. They also have very loud mouths.

  • Pinky

    Hope you’re doin’ well, momo!

    Everytime I read about your son I am SO happy my little gremlin only knows a few dozen words.

  • Jo Beaufoix

    Oh that is so cute. At least he’ll turn it down for a bit now. šŸ˜‰

  • tanya25m
