BUT in this case, I am speaking of the ones designed for noise reduction! Holy crap my kids are LOUD! I think that they have to be so quiet at school all day that when it is time to play at home- the volume is turned up. (You may think I am kidding, but I actually pulled out a pair of these babies and put them on today. If anything, it made the boys laugh and stop
yelling playing for a few brief moments.)—->Are your kids louder after school? OR is it just so quiet in the house now when they are gone that it just seems louder? Hmmm.
I do really miss them when they are both gone, but man am I thankful for the 3 hours of freedom I have gained! I have successfully made the most out of these hours this week. Monday, I went mountain biking with a girlfriend for an hour and 45 minutes. (I also didn’t fall at all- small success!) Wednesday, I went out on the road bike for 30 miles and finished it up with a quick 1 1/2 mile run. (I wanted to get one last brick workout in before my duathlon next weekend. This was not the best transition practice, because I came inside to grab the dogs to come along for the
pain fun. BUT it was a long ride and a quick run anyway. Poor babies barely had a chance to pee on the route!)I am also very thankful that as the boys get older, things get easier. I have been an Interbike widow this past week. I have to say that this has been the easiest Interbike week for me in the past 6 years. Sure they are loud, but there are no diapers, no sleepless nights, no inconsolable crying. All in all, my boys are fun!
