Like me, when I tell everyone, "Can't you just be quiet for one teeny second because otherwise I am going to go insane" last night.

Overboard? Yes. Even though the noise was ridiculous, and I really needed it quiet.

We make mistakes. In that moment, I didn't count to 10, didn't give the most calming and empowering parenting response — I just let my emotion and irritation with noise dictate my response.

After a bit, and a little quiet, I came back and apologized for my crabbiness.

That noise? Someday, truly, I will miss it.
