Often, the volume level of my three noisy boys makes it feel like I'm at a bad rock concert! Not to mention the increase in volume when a few of their friends are added to the mix (which is fairly regularly!).
On my better days I remind myself of what quiet will someday sound like. Yikes! I don't like the thought of that at all! On my better days I like to call it "Joyous Chaos". Thank goodness that I have a lot of joyously chaotic days! Hey, when all else fails, there is always Advil or vodka!
