Five Minute Friday: Loud — 26 Comments

  1. Yes… I do have an aversion to one loud noise… the TV… and it goes off Mon-Fri here at our place… I find it so much calmer… and I am able to enjoy the laughing and the squeals and the discussions without competing with the Disney channel 🙂

  2. Yes, I do have an aversion to loud noises. You are looking at it in the right way, though.  Be thankful your children are healthy enough to make noise!

  3. i did the five minute fridays for the first time and have found your blog because of it! i struggle with loud noises too, although funny enough, my post is exactly that…me being loud! i love your bio description and though i’m not a coffee drinker, i’ll take the hug and chocolate. thanks for a great blog!!!

  5. Dropping by from Gypsy Mama. Quite a wait this weekend to get up our links. Yes I have trouble with loud noises but as I age I can’t hear as much.. lol:) I enjoyed your post – children need time to express and be loud, but they also need to know when to be quiet. A good balance works.

  6. since my honey has hearing loss and wears hearing aids, it reminds me what a gift hearing is. it’s amazing, how loud everything was when kelly 1st put his aids on. : )

  7. I do have an aversion to some loud noises (especially the repetitive ones like smoke alarms with old batteries, house alarms, car alarms) but those are the ones that people need for warnings, so I am thankful for them.  

  8. Barbie, no kids here any more — all grown.  The loud one is my husband — the stereo goes full bore when he’s in the house, the car, wherever!  And yes, as I get older, it’s too loud.  🙂  I do get it.  Wanted so much to be a part of Five Minute Friday today, but we’ve been traveling for family again and I’m behinder than behind at home, on my blog, etc.  Asking God to give me the strength to get caught up in the next few days.  

  9. Funny~ our family is exactly the opposite… we tend to *all* be a little loud. I guess being married to a guitar player, I didn’t have a choice. And our son is quite the drummer… yeah, we were the parents who actually purchased a drum set for our own child! =) Hope you have a great weekend!

    • Mandy, that’s too funny!  My husband, oldest son, and my two daughters all play guitar.  And my youngest son is asking for a drum set!  Oh boy, I suppose ear plugs were created for a reason. 

  10. oh, the yelling at the steps gets me every time…I’m working on it.
    love your honest, raw posts, Barbie. makes me feel like we’re chatting at the kitchen table 😉
     

  11. I do not like loud. In fact, I love the quiet… no tv or music or busyness… just quiet. But, I DO love the loud laughs, silly antics and sweet voices of my girls. that does build memories and remind me of the wonderful life God has blessed me with!

  12. i think i have sensitive ears too, but i don’t like the quiet…it’s intimidating, but i know i need it sometimes. it’s always loud at my house with my 2 year old and 5 month old! great post! enjoyed reading it!

  13. you know, i think i have always had sensitive ears because i am not that old and have had a hard time with loud noises for a long time!  that said, i seem to be able to tune out constant kid noise as long as it is a steady hum of noise.  

  14. like how you were honest about what you didn’t like but at the same time you were able to see the blessing in your son and family…Happy Friday, Barbie 🙂

  15. how do such little people make such loud noises?? but, like you, I am glad to have them and their voices regardless of how loud they may get. have a wonderful weekend making loud memories!!
