Toddler Telephone Tourettes
What is it about me picking up a telephone - landline or mobile - that seems to trigger N to have what I am now considering to be toddler tourettes?
The moment the phone in my hand moves to my ear, she's off. She will scream, shout, kick, cry and even roll about on the floor making general grunting and growling noises until the point said phone is put down.
I've tried running away to the kitchen and shutting the door behind me but until I get a bolt for it (which is bloody tempting!), she just opens it or bangs on it (whilst screaming) so I'm pressed against it trying to keep it shut to have any chance of hearing what the other person is saying. It's that or go for a hurdle of the stairgate and a sprint upstairs before saying hello. Usain Bolt I am not!
Maroon 5 are better off having a conversation in the explosion than at a payphone anywhere near this house.
Is it just me?
