It strikes me as a little funny that not a whole lot has changed since I wrote it. I think the volume control knob that came with my kids arrived broken. I thought, when the MiniNess got a little older, that she’d be the quiet little princess. But no. Anything the KnytLite does, she has to try to do better. She’s a competitive sort, that girl! She loves making sound effects too. That one threw me for a loop! A girl? Making shooting noises and car noises? Just goes to show that you can never, ever, peg your kids.
It’s still fairly loud here. But now, they’ve learned to roll their eyes behind my back while saying, “We know, we know! ‘Be quiet!’”
I am oft reminded of Bill Cosby’s routine – “Parents aren’t interested in justice – they want QUIET!”
From the kid’s point of view, I guess it’s, “What’s life without some sound effects?”
Still, Darc and I had to laugh the other day when our son complained of the birds in the tree by our place being too loud. “That’s a bit pot and kettle, eh, son?”
At this point, I’d probably be totally freaked out if things were quiet around here.
