HAHAHAH! Love this!

The volume at our house is deafening at times, so I can definitely identify and there are days where I feel so danged bad about yelling all the time....so I usually breathe and then do something so completely irritating like tickling them or getting nose to nose with them and asking who is the best mom ever? It's silliness personified but then I don't seem like such a dick who yells all the time. ;)

Keep up the good work, Ma.

you and your kids are very lucky


Aw, a shared soda of love. Much better than scoldings...good call!

I don't have kids. And I don't have something super spectacular to comment here. I just wanted to tell you how much I love reading about the interactions you have with your kids.

It's funny, heart-warming, crazy and I just love following along.


I'm kind of ashamed to admit it, but I yell too. Most of the time, it's because I get ignored when I talk in a normal volume. Of course, then there's a temptation to skip the "normal volume, get ignored, repeat yourself, ignored again, yell" process and start right at "yell." I fight this temptation and wish I could say I was 100% successful. (It also doesn't help that I came from a loud house and so tend to have a loud voice even when I'm talking at a "normal volume.")

Maybe I need to follow your lead and start yelling nice things at them to counteract my yelling when they ignore me.
