My little Chatterbox!!!!
I bought this shirt the other day.....
I couldn't resist.....
It sums up my daughter perfectly!!!!!
Anyone who knows her, knows she talks.all.the.time!!!!
I'm not complaining ....really I'm not! I love her stories, her singing, and her very strong opinions....on everything!
This is a little girl who didn't say a heck of a lot for the first six months after we brought her home. She was 26 months old and had a cleft palate the size of the Grand Canyon. Any sound or word she tried to make just got lost....literally! Shea came home in February of 2007. She had her first palate surgery in August. By Christmas....she was a chattering!!! And she had a lot to say.....trust me!
Now, several surgeries later and with the help of her amazing & wonderful speech therapist....
Shea is a talking machine!!! I hate to admit this....but, there have been times when I have asked Shea to (gasp) stop talking and let some one else talk!!!!
Here is a great story of "the kettle calling the pot black". (Or is it the other way around???)
Shea: Mommy, I just love my new pink shirt! What does it say?
Me: It says 'Chatterbox'.
Shea: Oh, like someone who talks a lot.
Me: Yes, exactly.
Shea: Hmmmm.....just like Pastor!
Gotta love this kid!!!
(Since our church has three pastors, I'm not quite sure to whom she is referring.....)
