I know you’ve often wondered “How the hell does she stay so calm with six freaking kids?”

I have a secret.

It’s like a little piece of heaven for my ears. Just enough to make me be able to tend to Trixie screaming her fool head off because someone won’t give her a clothespin or a spoon or some trivial object. Without smacking her, I mean. Cause I guess that would be one way to deal with it but I’m agin it, you know.

Highly recommend them if you have the means.

  1. heh…..I got some of those from my dad, ostensibly for C, but um, yeah, very useful. Mine come tethered on a cord so that the littlest one doesn’t find them. 😉

  2. Well, my secret to easygoing parenting is to have all your kids become grownups like mine have! Ha Ha Ha!

  3. ROTFL….I use Bre’s shooter muffs. That way they have a visual cue that mom isn’t coping so well with the noise.

    on the smacking… ‘agin it’ indeed LOL!

  4. I never thought of using earplugs! I will definitely try this, I have some in the garage, I’m getting them out tonight.

  5. GREAT IDEA!!! I could definitely use some of those sometimes. Wow! My husband will get a laugh when I tell him about them, too. We both get a little overwhelmed by the decibal levels in this house on occasion.
