#AtoZChallenge: Q is for Quiet…Not

There are three things a mom wants: rum, Netflix, and peace and quiet. (There might be an “and” in that last one, but we’re still counting it as one item.) Okay, so maybe other moms don’t all want to be couch potato boozers, but they at least want the last thing sometimes, and if there’s one thing you can count on in life besides taxes, it’s kids not being quiet.

Answering an important phone call from your doctor’s office? It’s gonna sound like you’re at a rager from all the background noise. Trying to send an email — or write a blog post — and need to focus so you don’t come across like you’re drunk typing? Obviously this is the time the kids will decide to work on their banshee wailing. Or maybe you want to catch up just a little on all the sleep you’ve lost over the past nine-plus years? They try to set a new record for decibel level.

The one with the monitor is Baby Girl’s version of The Feeney Call.

“Q” is definitely not for “quiet” when it comes to rousing Mommy.

Iโ€™m a SAHM to two kids. When Iโ€™m not doing all the typical mom things (diapers, soccer, etc.), I like writing, reading, and playing games. Clearly I live the life of a rock star.

  1. Haha, absolutely! They are at SOP 110 dB all day long, right? Starting at daybreak…. The drum set awakening will forever stay in my head (thankfully we don’t own a drum set … and never will!) – I’m sorry for you. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ Thanks for the shoutout, Erika! ๐Ÿ™‚

      1. Actually my greatest fear at the moment is my girl getting tap shoes! My sister is law is waiting very impatiently to get them for her!! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ


  2. Oh man, see, that’s one of those things YOU WON’T MISS and people are stupid. Quiet is heavenly. Quiet is up there with sex and ice cream. It’s wonderful. Plus, oh, the joy of waking them when they were up all hours of the night. ๐Ÿ˜‰


  3. Before having kids, I used to complain to people about being. I wish I could time travel and slap myself.

    My three year old recently came into my room with one of those recorder / piano things. I am not even sure of the name. All I know is I hate it, and myself for teaching him how to play it. “WAKE UP MOMMIE!!!” Indeed ๐Ÿ˜ฆ
