does anyone else tune out their kids?

sometimes i feel like my son just goes on and on and on...i know he does it to get my attention but sometimes he can really get under my skin so i just totally tune him out. He just asks me rediculous questions that make no sense or things he already knows the answer to...sometimes i think he just likes to hear himself talk. does anyone else tune their kids out? If not what else do you do when your kids act this way?

  • One time I was at the movie theaters and there were teenagers behind us (it was my two sisters and me) and those teenagers were talking. I didn't even NOTICE until my sisters started looking pissed. I was like, "what's wrong?" and they said the teenagers wouldn't stop talking. LOL, I was like "If y'all had kids, you wouldn't have heard those teenagers either!" LOL!

    I tune them out sometimes. I try not too but it happens! LOL

  • I do that with my daughter alot because she'll keep going "mommy" over and over then when I do answer she'll be like " what are you doing?" It's a constant thing with her.
