Boys and girls are different, they just are. One major difference is noise. My boys make noise all the time...they don't even know they are doing it! Today, they spent the snow day rolling in laughter while watching Home Alone, talking through their Valentine decorations, video game sounds, lots and lots of gun noises and pretend walkie talkies, and, my favorite, singing loudly while sitting the echoy cabinet.
Its the shooting and ship noises that annoy me the most and are the ones that I don't think they even realize they are making. And they make them all the time.
All I want is a moment of quiet. With three boys in the house, I suppose it is unlikely for the next ten years, at least.
