I've discovered an interesting phenomenon in the last few days. After 7+ years of talking all the time about what I am doing, or just talking to keep infants amused, I can no longer just think things through. Instead, I feel the need to talk them out loud - even if no-one is listening, or if the topic is completely unsuitable for talking about in front of toddler. And after a determined effort, I can actually think 'in my head' as it were, but in a somwhat peculiar manner - I have to 'write' it. As in, I have to think of myself as writing it down for someone to read. Bizarre. Realy hoping it goes away soon.
