I hate it when it's quiet!

I grew up in a large family and it was always loud.So now when it's quiet I can't stand it. It makes me want to take a nap. Don't get me wrong I love "me" time but I have to have the radio or TV on.

  • I grew up in a house with 10 kids on a highway. Even as an adult we have always lived along a main road. I can't concentrate without some a tv or a radio going. And at night, even after living where we do for the last 6 years, I still haven't gotten used to the dead silence at night. I am used to the traffic, so when it is quiet like this, I hear every little thing all night and it drives me nuts!

  • I like it both ways, I like it when the kids have friends over and it's loud and everyone is having fun but there are times where I love the quiet....right now I would really give my right arm for a day of quiet

  • Not me. I grew up in a noisy home and I LOVE the peace and quiet of being alone.

  • I have 4 loud kids and I relish the little quiet time I get.

  • Most people love it, I get that. For me I prefer noise that's several decimals below screaming toddler. i just don't like it to be completely quiet. like right now DS is in bed and I have the radio going.
