Mothers and the NOISE!

Posted by Mattie on Sep 28, 2010 in Motherhood |

The worst thing about being a mother is the NOISE. That awful sound that kids make when they are tired, wired and bored. I can change poopy diapers all day long. I can even deal with getting in my car 20 times a day, just to drive 5 kilometres.

But when my kids start bickering, squealing and thumping around the house, I feel like I am going to loose my mind. I feel like some one has thrown my head into a washing machine of symbols, violins and drums. I feel like the thin straps of sanity holding me together are deteriorating and snapping one by one!

I can only attribute this to the fact kids are inside the house TOO much. I try my best to kick them out, but it rains here a lot and in the summer it is too hot. The best place for fresh air is in the forest with its natural canopy to shield them from the rain or hot sunshine.

But who wants their kids roaming around in the woods by themselves? With sickos waiting for a kids to slip up. Not me. I know that I am overreacting, because the stats tell me so. But how could I live with myself if something happened to my children?

So we use electronics to keep our kids busy today. They have learned how to embrace technology in a way that I will never achieve. So I guess that is my justification.

Sometimes we go to the mall. At least the kids are moving.
