Noise level? hmmm, I did not hear anything…

I am reminded today,  Valentines day, of the noise level my kids are capable of.  It is crazy and more often uncontrollable.

There are days I see someone with a hearing aid and am slightly envious. To be able to turn it all off…

Today there was noise of happiness but most days in this house – it is just LOUD.

LOUD talking, loud fighting, loud games, loud dancing and the loud toys. Let me tell you – the toys that make noise…curse you all who bought those and may you never have kids of your own. I know that those toys all came from people without kids, because no right-minded parent would buy anything that made noise. We even have those toys that go off randomly by themselves and make you double-check your pants. (too graphic sorry, I digress). I will return the favor to those people…be sure of that.

Is it just me or do small humans have no volume control? Maybe it is just mine. When you talk to them your always “yelling” according to them (not true) and when the YELL at you – you ask them to talk. And what is an inside voice when you have a small litter of kids to talk over? I am afraid…it is yelling to them, so that is how they “talk” to each other. I apologize in a random form to all of those who befriend us or my kids in general. They are not mad, just loud. SO much so that when I take my youngest out alone he TALKS (yells) all the time!

I wish you the best Valentines but more importantly a reflective one that brings you peace.

i leave you with a few peaceful photos taken up north – of the ice on our pier….
