A Moment of Mom Silence

My son, 11, is a very social child….definitely didn’t get that from me. He has a quite a group of friends and somewhere along the way our home has become the hangout for his friends. I should also note that he is an only child.

It’s rare that I come home from work to an empty house. There is obviously pros and cons to having our house as the hangout. It’s nice knowing where he is but at the same time I long for quiet.


Tonight I had 4 of them trying to out talk each other. Arguing over video games. And just plain old bugging the shit out of each other.

If you deal with groups of boys you know what I mean!

But the magic hour hit and they all went home. I went from earplugs to complete silence and I am loving every minute of it.

Playlist for this would include Depeche Mode – Enjoy The Silence – on repeat!!!
