Sanj was in the basement studying and commented on the noise of our household. Actually he complained about it. He was funny is his description of the sounds… describing a banshee sound (that would be Max) and all the other yelling and probably laughing.
Jordan talks loud all the time. Maybe he needs his hearing checked. (hum…..)
Max has a banshee screech when he is excited and hyped up.
Zachary yells when he is losing a battle.
Tyler and Sammy are just loud.
is this normal?
I was in the grocery store today… the boys (4 of them) were antsy. The lady behind me says, “It does get better.. 4 boys.”
I said… “Well I actually have 6.”
Well that was the end of her conversation with me… she and the lady behind her began…”Well poor thing… I at least had a girl somewhere in there.” blah blah blah.
Where do I go with this? My boys are busy, very active and loud boys. What am I going to do? Get rid of a few? Try a muzzle? Shock collar?
I think that they are normal. If there was 2 of them it would seem sane. Normal. But that normal level of volume is multiplied by 6 . Nothing is normal. Everything is amplified.
I feel so lonely. I wish there was another mom of 6 boys that I could bouncy this off of. I have no normal. I feel so often we are own walking freak show. Look at that family!
I have to cling to what so many older than me have said. Boys are hard work now. They get easy. Girls are easier now.. they get harder.
I love them so much. I feel bad when I am driven to crazy. Today it is a good thing I have my crazy pill.
We are going out to supper. Then it is a early bedtime for everybody!
