Major is terrible with interrupting. DH and I basically can't speak to each other because the second we start to have a conversation, Major interrupts. We usually just tell him that we are talking and he needs to wait until we are done, but that doesn't always work. A lot of times, I will just stop talking/listening to DH and address Major real quickly because I know he will just persist if I don't.
We struggle with that, too. If DH and I are talking, she is bad about interrupting. I'll usually say something like, "Wait just a minute, sweetie, I'm talking to daddy right now." It doesn't always work, and often she'll respond with, "DON'T TALK TO DADDY! I want to talk to daddy!" Ugh.

We're still working on it. We flag it a lot more with her now whereas before I'd stop my conversation to address her, now I ask her to wait patiently or I say "i can't listen to you right now because I'm talking and I can't do both at the same time" so sometimes she waits and other times she'll persist.
It's mostly annoying when I'm talking to other people.
We have to work on it more. He's getting mixed messages because DH and I don't agree on how to handle it. I think that he needs to be taught and I'll stop my conversation for a moment and say that mommy is talking right now and he needs to wait for a moment, finish what I'm saying or wait for the other person to stop talking and then turn to him and ask him what he wanted to say. DH feels that he should just be ignored and continues talking which ends up with Eli repeating things over and over. I'm frustrated.
Trey is terrible about interupting. He also understand my expectations for him...and doesnt give a darn. haha he's 3.
Most of the time, i really want to scream in his face "SHUT UP!!! I'M TALKING! YOU LITTLE BRAT!"...but i usually just tell him "hang on just a minute, i'm talking to ____ right now". And, like Nicole, a lot of times i just acknowledge him quickly, and continue talking to Tim.
It has been horrible lately. I was pausing my convo and addressing her and that made it alot worse. Now I tell her she has to wait and I will talk to her in a second. It works sometimes and sometimes not... eh 3 year old...
*Thank you *Kiliki* for the beautiful siggy!
