Gah! Every time I've got this mom thing figured out that first kid of mine throws me for another loop!
Sam has started making this noise. I don't really know how to describe it. It's a cross between a grunt and a throat clearing and a singing note. It almost reminds me of the old-person noise I make when I bend down to tie my shoes. Except he makes it all the time and it.is.driving.me.crazy! Watching TV. Reading. Sitting at the table. Walking from one room to another. ALL THE TIME!
Is it a phase? Is it some weird verbal tic because I've finally screwed him up that bad? I know it's not right to be critical of the weirdness your child presents...but he stops it if I tell him to stop it. So it seems he has control over it. I don't get it. WHY is he doing this? And how do I get him to stop it for good?
I don't really expect an "answer" here. Just needed to give this one a voice, I guess.
