I can't help it, I'm just chatty.

A rare moment of solitude.

The title of this post is Child 2's normal response whenever he gets in trouble.  The thing is, he's right.  He's very chatty.  In fact he's turned chatting into a whole new offensive tactic in his t-ball games.  When he plays third base it doesn't matter who lands in front of him.  In under five seconds he finds a way to engage them in conversation.  It's a constant source of amusement to the parents on our team when we see the poor frustrated coach of the other team yelling at the kid standing on my son's base to, "Stop talking and run, rUN, RUN."

Okay, so the thing is, my son is not the only chatty person in our family.  He got the amazing hair from his dad but he *might* have inherited the chattiness from me.  I too love to chat.  Life is interesting and I like to hear what other people have to say about it.  It's entirely possible that I too was frequently reprimanded for talking in school and after-school sports and girl scouts and, well, you get the picture.

The point, I've come to it at last, is that here on my blog I've finally found a place to channel all that chatty energy.  I can go visit other people's blogs and read what they have to say (and comment).  I can tell you my thoughts, each and every one of them.  You can tell me your thoughts, each and every one of them.  It's chatty heaven!!  Sometimes I worry I might run out of things to say, but then I remind myself I'm going to be forty in September, and so far I've never been haunted by a loss for words.

I am huge into conversations and social interacting. I love to hear what other people think and know. The exchange of info and thoughts and memories is so satisfying to me!

Child 2 sounds adorable! I love that he's super chatty. How sweet.

I can tell you'd be a chatty person. You have a really easy going and fun way of writing on you blog that seems like you'd have a lot to say (but not in annoying way).
