I am so ashamed to admit it, but I sometimes hate listening to the sound of difficult child's voice. He can't ever just sit quietly. He has to be talking constantly. I woke him up 20 minutes ago and am already ready to strangle him just to get him to shut up. No, he's not manic, he just can't figure out that sitting quietly is okay. He has opinions about everything and he's bound and determined that he's going to voice them. Most of the time I just tune him out, but then he just amps it up because he wants reactions to what he says. He asks questions and if I tell him I don't know the answer he'll repeat the question until I wind up growling at him.
