My in-laws are loud.
They talk loud. And they talk all the time.
I hide up in the computer room all night long or run quickly to the basement to watch tv after I put my daughter to bed because they are so freaking loud.
I can hear full conversations while I'm putting my daughter to sleep. That is, if she actually falls asleep before I do. Because she can hear everything too. And it's not nice soft sweet comforting lullabies.
I even have those playing and they don't cover up the freaking noise.
I can usually handle it, but seriously, it's getting on my nerves. I'm fairly talkative, but silence, particularly now as a mother, is golden. I don't need to talk all the time. In fact, there are times when I wish I didn't have to talk. Maybe that's why I like blogging so much. I can do it in TOTAL SILENCE.
I've actually thought about calling my husband to call them while I'm putting her down for bed and letting him tell them to shut-up because quite frankly, I just can't think of a nice way to say it.
"STFU" is about all I can come up with, and I'm guessing that won't go over too well.
Any other suggestions?
