I talk too much!

Really, I know I talk too much!

I have to keep myself in check when I'm chatting too much.

I'm an over-sharer too.

I guess these are traits of a fair few bloggers out there, particularly parent-bloggers!

I'm the sort of person who walks down the street and says "hi!" or "morning!" with a big smile to anyone who passes.

If I'm in a queue waiting for something, I can't help but strike up a conversation with someone.

It'll be about the weather, and then about how my kids are enjoying being out in it/or not enjoying being stuck in.

If I'm walking with Max and doing my overly-excited-with-signing talking to him, I'll grin when people walk past and look at me funny. They usually end up smiling back! After all, what they're seeing is a mum enjoying her son's company!

I quite like being the way I am.

In fact, I really like being the way I am.

I'm open to conversations, and tend to be able to get one out of most people if I put my mind to it!

I think I've taken after my mum with this one. She's such a warm, gregarious person. I don't think I've ever known anyone to *not* like her!

It seems the apple doesn't fall far from the tree. I hope!

I am very good at listening too, and giving hugs (*hugs*!), but mostly, I do rather like the sound of my own voice... probably a little too much at times!

At the end of the day, I'm a bit of an introverted extrovert.

I adore time to myself, and I do need my space, but I adore spending time with other people too.

The idea of going to Cybermummy or something similar (it will happen one year! *sigh*) fills me with delight!

The thought of meeting so many people, and getting to travel somewhere on my own, be independent, my own person...

Oh the possibilities!

I guess what it probably boils down to, is that I'm at a point in my life where I'm comfortable in my own skin, and confident in myself.

What about you? Are you a talker or a listener? Does the thought of going to something with dozens of people you don't know fill you with anticipation, or dread? Do you think it's maybe more to do with your self-confidence, or is that just the way you are? I'd love to hear your thoughts!
