I read somewhere yesterday that most five-year-old kids chatter non-stop and it is their way of testing out words and becoming skilled in conversation. The article said you should feel privileged to hear every thought that passes through your five-year-old's brain (!). Sometimes Ryan and I can't hear ourselves think for the constant flow of words. And did I mention that he has no inside voice?
I know someday he won't tell me what is on his mind, and I will wonder and try to figure out what he is thinking and feeling. At five, he hides nothing inside, wears his heart on his sleeve, and spills his thoughts out loud. So privileged.
