Normally I am a very forgiving person when it comes to children crying. I always feel bad for the parents who get glared at in public becuase it’s not like they don’t already feel bad enough about the fact that their child is unhappy or uncomfortable and for maybe disturbing people. I always try to be the one to smile at them and let them know that not everybody is an ass. I’ve had a child. Sometiems you just can’t help it. Babies cry.
BUT, the couple downstairs from us have 8 month old twin boys. And one or the other or BOTH have been crying for about four straight days now. We keep our windows open because there’s really no need to run the A/C here. They do this too. I’ve never heard crying like this before. It seriously sounds like a 40 year old women scarred to death and screaming for dear life…. over and over and over and over. Scream. 5 second pause. Scream. 2 second pause. Rinse. Repeat.
Part of me want’s to go down there and help her out by maybe holding one for a bit (although she normally has somebody there to help her out)… and the other non-mom part of me want’s to go down there and slam all the windows closed and then duct tape their mouths closed after slipping them some Tylenol.
*damn I feel bad for saying that*

[15:53] Antigone: But DAMN the crying is just getting to me.
[15:53] Antigone: I don’t think it ever ends.
[15:54] Antigone: One or the other or BOTH are crying… constantly.
[15:55] Antigone: MAybe we could just slip them some Tylenol or something.

[15:56] LoverBoy: sounds good to me
[15:57] Antigone: We can call it ‘Operation Silence the Dawn’
[15:58] Antigone: Because they always cry right at 4am… when the birds start chirping.
