I think that there is an unwritten law with children that as soon as a mother gets on the phone, they gets have to get louder. It is programmed into their little brains just before birth. I have noticed here in our new house that that loudness while on the phone is so much worse than anywhere else. We have wood floors and I really think that any little sound bounces off the floors then back onto the walls and gets blasted in the direction of the phone. I get a little embarrassed sometimes just because it may seem like I am not listening. I just uhuh as if I really did hear everything the person on the other end did say and hope that I pick up the conversation through other clues later on in the conversation. I am sure that you all must have the same "syndrom" in your house.
I am a very busy mother of 7 wonderful children. So my life is never dull. We are quite the zoo I am realizing but who doesn't love the zoo right? This blog has become my journal so you will see the good along with the ugly but thats our life.
