Don't Believe Your Ears...

Wed 7:31am -- I'm in the basement loading the washing machine.

The whole time I'm down there I can hear the king.

He's "eeeee-ing" loudly and he sounds really distressed and anxious.

This goes on for almost 5 minutes. And I'm about to yell up to the wife,

"Are you with him? What's bothering him?"

But I don't, and I go upstairs in a few minutes and my perspective totally changed.

He was sitting at the table happily watching a show on his iPad while eating pancakes & bananas & happily "eeee-ing" loudly.

No distress, no anxiousness, just happy.

Funny how your perspective can change so quickly.

The lesson here?

Don't believe your ears.

  3. Nice work with the self restraint. Expectations often throw me for a loop.

  4. We've gotten pretty good at determining what is a happy noise and what is NOT a happy noise, but this still happens at least once every other day in our house. I absolutely admire your restraint! :)
