Things I can hear

During naps I experience (and enjoy - which is totally weird for me) silence. Total and complete silence. I share my "office" with nobody. Josh isn't home to talk to, and I've stopped the annoying habit of talking to myself.

However, when Josh (and the rest of the neighborhood) comes home it's all a different story.

In the past 15 minutes I have heard all of the following:

  • The last of "Old Dogs" in which some dude is singing "I'm all out of love" while being cradled by what the viewer can only assume is a killer gorilla. (What do you know about gorillas? Enlighten me.)
  • Josh singing "I'm all out of love" cuz now it's in his head.
  • Thomas shrieking with laugher.
  • Splashing in the bathtub.
  • Josh singing "splish splash I was takin' a bath" which somehow lead to whistling "a dream is a wish...your heart makes" which then morphed into "scrub-a-dub-dub my baby's in the tub-a" which of course leads to that "Trashing the Camp" song from Tarzan. If you've never played Encore or "String of songs" you should. But you should be on Josh's team or else you'll lose.
  • Microwave beeping.
  • Phones ringing (3 of them).
  • Car alarms going off.
  • Garage doors opening.
  • Some kid crying the middle of the road because he fell off his bike. Poor kid.


  1. Awh, the silence we love in just a short while of quiteness.....was nice while it lasted, but the love that those other sounds left in your head ,like Josh's tune in his, is greater sometimes.

  2. I accept Josh's challenge (or your challenge in behalf of Josh). Too bad I'm in California ...

  3. I love your blog. Sounds like you have a great life. :)

  4. We like to sing 'splish splash' during bath time too! You're right, in the evening it is certainly nosier than during the day.

  5. I can hardly wait til Thomas starts singing back at you! So fun!

  6. I want him to sing back at you too! How fun will it be when he starts saying everything you do:)
