Confession: Shhhhhhh.......I Can't Hear Myself Think!

With kids......life is never as quiet as it once was. Sometimes it can be difficult just hearing yourself think! Do you ever have one of those days that you just need a few minutes of peace & quiet? Ahhhhh.......that's how I am feeling today! LOL The fun game of 'Let's see who can be the quietest for the longest' just doesn't work on kids anymore after they play the game sooo many times and see that it offers no true benefit to them. My kids seem to be always making noise and most of the time I am okay with that...or perhaps I've gotten used to that, however I catch myself asking them to please be quiet for so many reasons throughout the day. Think about how many times each day that we are actually asking for our kids to please be quiet for a second.....it's amazing how many times that they need to be reminded! LOL
Shhhhhh........the baby's asleep!
Shhhhhh........I'm on the phone!
Shhhhhh........I can't hear myself think!
Shhhhhh........You're talking way too loud!
Shhhhhh........We're at the library!
Shhhhhh........The neighbors are sleeping!
Shhhhhh........I can't hear the news!
Shhhhhh........I'm trying to work!
Shhhhhh........I'm trying to sleep!
Shhhhhh........It's a surprise!
Shhhhhhh......................Shhhhhhhh..................................Shhhhhhhh
And to think when they were little bitty babies...we just couldn't wait for them to start talking. Once they start, they Never stop! LOL
Hoping that my day gets a little quieter!

I know exactly what you mean! I am shushing my kids all day! They are super loud just like the hubby, so I can NEVER hear myself think, I swear. I think thats why I stay up too late, it is the only time I get some quiet! :)

I do the same thing...hence, it is super late right now and I am typing away on my blog and reading new posts from other blogs....Why? Because the kids & hubby are sound asleep and I can actually hear myself thinking! I know I need to go to sleep myself....but I am getting sooo much done!!! :)

All the time I'm asking the kids to be quiet and even my husband usually.. lol. The minute I think I get a few moments, it's another cycle of shhhh.
