Got Something To Say

There is a curious phenomenon when talking to kids: they can’t hear you if they have something to say.

Try as you might, you can repeat yourself over and over in a monotone, but the kids just can’t process it until you acknowledge them first. 

Perhaps it is part of being a young kid when you think the whole world revolves around you. The brain is definitely immature and all the synapses aren’t firing in coordination yet.

But, mostly, I think it comes from the fact that the kid is thinking: doggone it, I got something to say!

I'm starting to feel the same way myself.
