I just accept it. Sometimes our kids are really really loud. I am not a fan of noise. I like peace and quiet. I like when one kid's asleep, to keep him or her asleep. I like when I can hear the sound of the hundreds of dollars we spend on PG&E in the summer whirring in the background. But alas, our little blessings often preclude such pleasantries. Enjoy this video at http://hanerhome.blogspot.com/ if you're reading this on Facebook and be thankful for the moments of silence...and noise...in your life. :)0
As a sidenote, I am a little concerned with the lack of pitch matching precision exhibited here, but I am still hopeful these kids will one day be musically inclined.

But this morning, my wonderful husband allowed me to sleep in...not just a little sleep in either. When I finally rolled over and looked at the clock, it was NOON!!!!!! "Noon?" I thought to myself..."how can this be?" Not only that, but when I awakened, it was quiet in the house. Both boys were sleeping and he had taken Kya to her private swimming lesson (with him as the teacher) at the Solera pool. Ahhhhhhh...seratonin levels were restored. I could face the laundry, dishes, sewing projects and MOPS publicity duties with fresh eyes (ones that didn't tear up every time I looked around the house or toward my overfilled inbox.)
I believe a special prayer lifted up by my pastor helped me find the sleep I needed. Thank you Lord, thank you husband, and thank you Pastor.
