I am not normally tolerant of noise in my house. For Christmas, my aunt and uncle gave the kids a set of musical instruments (tambourine, cymbals, macaranas, a triangle, and some other noisy instruments). I didn’t see myself ever allowing them to play with these toys while I am in the house, or even alive. Well today, I was feeling weird. I actually got them out and let the girls play with them, I even joined in. I must admit, I had fun, and I now plan to have “music time” with my girls on a regular basis now.
