Not a quiet house...

No matter how hard I try, I am not a quiet person. Just ask my husband, family, any roommate I have lived with, and even my students.

My mom used to say, "Stasia, you are like a bull in a china cabinet!" Referring to the way she could almost always hear me anywhere in the house. I used to get offended by this, now I have just accepted the truth. When Andrew and I first got married he had to adapt to me washing dishes and cleaning the house at 3:30 in the morning. 

I have always wondered how I would adapt when we had a baby... worried that I would never be quiet enough to let a baby sleep! Luckily, a couple dear friends informed me that being quiet is not necessary for a baby, that in fact it is good to be the opposite at times! I watched in amazement on one girl's night as their boys slept through the loud movie.

So I have made the decision, or rather accepted the reality, our house is not a quiet one. Life must continue even after we are blessed with little bundles of joy! Bailey Drew sleeps through music, television, movies, and our conversations. I even took BD to the movies with one of these friends and their newborn... She slept right through it!
On our baby date... babies on the way to the movies!
This has worked for me with this baby... Hopefully it will continue!
What about you... Quiet house? Or not?
