Some parents talk, sing, and entertain their infants even though the babes don't answer back because they want to shower the tots with attention. Other moms and pops feel awkward having one-sided conversations with wee ones and hold off on excessive dialogue until the children attempt to chat. Which way did you choose to communicate?

Did any of you see Saturday Night Live this weekend? If not, you missed a hilarious skit all about "girlfriend voice." Three guys gave each other a hard time about the way their tone changed when talking to their significant other, yet it didn't seem to prevent them from doing it every time their phone rang. I know that most of you think baby talk is worse than hearing a couple fight, but tell me, do you do it anyway? Do you talk to your boyfriend in a different way than you talk to everyone else?
I know that most of you aren't fans of baby talk, but what about dirty talk? For some, it's easy to let your mouth run wild, whether it's talking out your fantasies or descriptively describing the act at hand, but knowing how to talk dirty in a way that makes it seductive is key in order for it to work! Of course we all like to hear that we're desirable, but do tell, are you generally into dirty talk? Does it turn you on or does it have the opposite effect? And if you're into it, are you the dirty talker or do you like to hear it from your partner?
People say that moms can tell the difference between their newborn's cries. But, I felt like a complete loser when I couldn't distinguish the hunger cry from the tired whimper.

He’s moving within an hour of you in three months so you decide to just let things happen naturally, but you're growing more and more attached. The problem is you start noticing a pattern that you just can’t get away from. Would it be worse if . . .
This: Every time you get on the phone with him, you’re confronted with an onslaught of the most over-the-top, sickly sweet baby talk you’ve ever heard? The only time you can get him to stop is you start getting into a little sexy chatter.
That: Every time you guys get past the pleasantries, he falls into a dirty talk tirade that just seems to gain momentum as you guys go along? It wouldn’t be so bad if he kept it to the phone-sex encounters, but instead it’s just constant.
Well, which conversation style is worse?
Everything is coming up babies these days. Expecting actress Jessica Alba swung by the Today Show to chat up her new movie, The Eye with host, Matt Lauer, but the two got a bit off subject joking about the "red elephant in the room," morning sickness, and the starlet's blessed life.
Relationships take work -- they are filled with the good, the bad, and the ugly. All couples fight, and sometimes these fights happen in the heat of the moment smack dab in the middle of a crowded restaurant or an airplane. On the flip side, all couples love to love each other, even engaging in some serious public displays of affection.
While overhearing a lover's quarrel can be extremely uncomfortable, so can listening to a couple whisper sweet nothings into each other's ears. So what do you think is worse, overhearing two people fighting like cats and dogs, or a couple speaking baby talk to each other? It's a tough choice, I know!
