would this bug you?

My sister is always bragging about her son. How he is sooo advanced. He's almost 2 and can count to 5 by himself and 10 with help. How he started sleeping in a toddler bed at 10 months and blah blah blah it goes on.

I'm sick of it!! My daughter turns 3 in Dec. and she asks me when she will be talking more because she doesn't talk that much but she can tell me what she wants. I understand her because I'm around her all day and my sister lived 2 hours away

  • UGH! Yes it would bug me it would make me want to tell her to shut up already not bc I am jealous but enough bragging. hang in there your child is going to do the same watch sooner or later and she'd probably find something else to brag about. just go with it in your mind say yeah yeah yeah blah blah Just tell her that is good. (Whatever)

  • It would annoy me too. Tell her that your daughter will talk when she talks and that as long as the doctor isn't worried you are not either.
