Constant Noise Syndrome

Having kids means loud noises all the time! I do declare they could make noise 24/7 if I would let them.

This is especially true of my middle child. I don’t think he knows how to shut up. Until you give him 30 minutes of your undivided attention that is! Then he can’t come up with anything to talk about.

Zeva on the other hand loves to be the great ez drummer. She’s constantly banging on something. In fact, my husband put up a punching bag in our living room just so she would have something extra to bang on. I honestly thought he was nuts for doing it. Yet, you know what she bangs on that punching bag quite often! I have yet to be able to catch a good picture of her doing it (otherwise, I could have showed you how cute she is with her little fists going to town on it.)

Jimmy just loves to create music with other instruments. He’s really big into guitars. He is always whistling when he’s not jabbering away about something. Of my three kids though, he’s actually the quietest. There are times when he’s the only one in the house and you can’t even tell he’s there.

You know the old saying, “when your kids are quiet that’s when you have to watch out!” That saying has saved my kids so many times. The minute they are quiet is the minute I go figuring out what they are doing. Lately, it’s to find Zeva on top of a dresser standing up acting like she’s the queen of the room, Delbert trying to color something he’s not suppose to, or Jimmy sneaking to get onto a piece of electronics that’s he’s not suppose to touch. Having kids means there is NEVER a dull moment! When they are asleep that is when you have to get things done on your to do list, right?

Is your house the same way?
