Our house is noisy. It just is. There are six of us and if you get us all together in the same room there are usually multiple conversations going on at once. Now, being the Mom, I'm able to have a conversation and listen to another one at the same time. I can ask someone a question, break up an argument, issue chore reminders, and still get back to the original question, all in a matter of seconds.
Years of practice folks.
So, we were all in the vicinity of the kitchen. The kids were talking at the table in loud voices and Chris and I were puttering around in the kitchen. It was noisy and busy and chaotic. I noticed Chris was looking kind of gruff so in an effort to make sure that he wasn't upset with me about something I gently asked, "Honey, are you feeling grumpy?"
I know. Maybe not the smartest question but I asked it in my best June Cleaver voice.
And our house just happens to be full of grumpy as well as multiple other mood swings because we have fresh teens just breaking their teeth on their new hormones. Such a fun....fun....fun time. (eyes rolling)
But just as Chris turned to answer, my daughter said this...
"Huh? Did someone say my name?"
Apparently she thinks her name is "grumpy" now.
