And then the words continue. Mom do you love me now?

I have heard this allllll day long. I have not been the most patient parent as I have heard this at least 150 times today.

I feel kinda bad. I know he couldn't help it, but my god this was too much. And it wasn't just the words, it was rapidly said in a high voice. over and over and over again.

Lord help me.

Can this kid read? Maybe it's time for signs around the house that say things like


"Yes, still"


"Uh-huh"


"Just like 5 minutes ago"


"Yep. Even now."

Well I honestly think this is a new tic. Of course I answered him, but I find if I ignore his behavior and it continues, then it's most likely a tic.

1st thing this morning it started again. Just to make sure I asked him, if he is worried about something or if he really thinks I don't love him, and he said no, he knows I love him. I said could this be a new tic? And he said yes I think so.

Hopefully we shall get thru this new one ARGH. Gotta love my kid though lol. Maybe I should go buy some really small ear plugs that he can't see me wearing. lol.

How nice that your ds is old enough to recognize that it could be tic (tho' the tic-ing itself would be like fingernails on a chalkboard)!

I don't know if it would work for your ds, but when I hear the same question over and over, I sometimes start answering the question over and over even when the question hasn't been asked. It makes my kids a little more aware of how annoying it can be.
