3 year old constantly shouting / singing random words and sounds - is this normal?!
It's been a really long day, and I was just wondering if anyone else has a 3 year old who is continually shouting / singing absolute nonsense?!
Any example is that today in town she sang 'Hey diddle diddle, the cat and the fiddle' over and over again, about every 30 seconds, for about 15 minutes while we were walking round the shops. She also makes up words and yells those at the top of her lungs or whispers / sings / whines them. When I tell her not to, she goes quiet for a few moments, but just can't contain herself and is soon onto the next noise.
She's highly imaginative, and seems to be doing role play all the time, and I'm not sure if it's part of this. She doesn't do it when she's playing with her friends or absorbed by something like a book or the TV. It mainly seems to be when we're out having a walk or when she's racing round the house.
People around me just give her indulgent smiles and think it's cute, but it's so constant that it's getting really wearing now. I have wondered whether it's because her little brother is just starting to talk, and she's trying to get attention by making noises because he makes noises. But I'm starting to get worried that something is wrong.
Does anyone else's children do this, and is this usual?
