Is it bad my kids get on my nerves just playing?

It has always been this way. The loud laughing and noises and the feet running across the floor just grates on me. then what drives me batshit crazy is that is I tel them to go outside... they go and sit in the dirt or just wander around the yard. They want to yell and run in the house. but put them outside where it is appropriate and they sit still and quiet. SERIOUSLY?

Is it just my kids that do this? Does the crazy play int he house bug you?

  • It is the volume that drives me crazy. If my 13 month old senses some injustice, she will screech, and I swear to you it sounds as loud and as obnoxious as one of those screaming firecrackers. It is that same pitch.

    But by the way, I KNOW you're not alone, because when we were kids, how much time did we spend indoors versus outdoors. I swear we would be LOCKED OUT of the house outside of mealtimes because my mom got sick of us running in and out of the house. She would stand by the door and screen our reasons for wanting back inside.
