So..I have been wondering about this.. you know how everyone has an internal monologue. Well, I was watching my two baby girls and my oldest (16 months) was playing by herself, and talking away. It was the first time I really saw her playing and talking to herself like that and it put me to wondering. Does she have an internal monologue now? If she does when did it start? Does it sound like her own voice?
I have a 5 month old that makes gurgly noises...does she have an internal monologue? What would it sound like? gurgles? coos? Me?.... what does the voice inside her head sound like? I always thought mine sounded like me talking to myself..BUT...does it sound like my mom?
I brought this up to my husband the other day and he said I was loosing it. Spending too much time alone with just the babies....perhaps he is right. Anyway it's an interesting subject to think over.
