This is Not Going to Get Me 'Mother of the Year'
Yup, this is one of the things I put on my Christmas wish list, and Santa was obliging: big yellow noise-blocking headphones. I know. Terrible, isn’t it?
“What big headphones you have, Mommy!”
“The better to ignore you with, my dear.”
These headphones are excellent at blocking out:
-Gabbey talking to the Zelda game
-Gabbey playing Zelda music on her ocarina or viola
-Gabbey whistling and/or humming Zelda music
-Gina practicing the flute
-Gina and Gabbey arguing
-Phineas & Ferb
-Wizards of Waverly Place
Due to the high-pitched, shrill voices of the title characters, the headphones cannot quite block out:
-Sunny with a Chance
They absolutely do not block questions like:
“Mom, can I have candy for dinner?” and …
“Mom, can I have all the money in your wallet?” so quit trying, Gabbey!
