Monday Listicles - 10 Sounds That Drive Me Bonkers

Happy Monday Everyone! After 4 (long) days at the Ocean the boys are home! Hooray! Of course Jakah is a whiny tantrum mess from not napping for 4 days, but its expected. He told me he missed me (awe) and has given me lots of hugs and kisses!

I am frantically trying to get all the laundry done so that Casey can re-pack his bag since he has to head down to Portland tomorrow night for work. Ugh! He asked me if I wanted to go, since I have never been able to go on a work trip with him (due to my work) but of course we would have to take the kids and its too much for 2 days and 1 night. Boo!

Anyways this week Stasha has asked us to list the 10 sounds that drive us bonkers! Sounds like fun!

10  Sounds That Drive Me Bonkers


1. Whining / Tantrums (from any child, but mostly my own)

2.Wood scraping together (I usually hear it when opening and shutting dresser drawers, or play with Jakah and the wooden train tracks, makes me cringe thinking about it)

3. The recorded messages they play over and over while you are on hold (of course I'll call 911 if my kid has an emergency, but I need to schedule a Dr appointment thank you)

4. Crying, the kind that doesn't stop not matter what you do (Jakah had colic, worst sound ever!)

5. The dogs nails scraping against the wood floors, or licking, or panting near me...basically the dog

6. Brakes grinding and screeching

7. Those stupid mini-bikes called pocket rockets (or quads), driving up and down the street at 10 or later at night. Kids are sleeping people! By the way, why are huge adult men riding pocket rockets? (P.S. if you Google pocket rockets you get vibrators heh. Hope my husband doesn't get all excited when he sees that)



8. Teeth grinding, especially at night, around 2 am causing me to not go back to sleep.... (ahem Casey!)

9. That disgusting sound / process of hocking a loogie (makes me gag just thinking about it)

10. Thomas the Train... I hate him... his voice annoys the crap outta me! I won't even let Jakah watch that show


And a bonus one

11. The sound of my son eating sand. Grinding it all up with his teeth (makes me shudder just thinking about it)

So there you have it! I need to go do ANYTHING to get the thought of those sounds out of my head before it annoys me even more!

  1. We've seen maybe half of an episode of Thomas...fortunately the boy isn't into trains, so it's not a big deal...and ha! on the pocket rockets, though I would have to agree!

  2. ewww to #9. And the pic of the pocket rocket annoys me so I can't imagine how annoying the sounds must be.

  3. Thomas the Train ranks right up there with Mr. Rogers for me but not nearly as bad as Caillou!!!

    Ummmmm...my nephew had one of those "pocket rockets" and I had a blast on it. Eeep. Of course I rode it prior to 9pm. ;P

    1. Caillou is kinda whiny and annoying too. As long as its before 9 pm pocket rockets don't bother me!

  4. My son had colic - you are so right about the unstoppable crying! Really, anything loud outside after 10pm drives me nuts!

    1. I think its the fact that there is nothing you can do to make it stop and it goes on for hours... I hope this baby doesn't do that!

  5. Did you have a good time on your own? Glad your boys made it home safely and you got some sweetness from Jakah.
    Chewing sand! Gah!
    And if it ever works for you to come down to Portland, I would love to meet up with you! It would be fun to meet in real life.

    1. I had a good time, did some mall shopping, went to the casino while my mom watched the baby for a few hours, got things cleaned out at home and new pictures hung up :) Funny you say that because as soon as he mentioned going down with him I thought of you! Ha ha ha! Hopefully it will work out someday and we can meet!

    2. Glad you got to do some things for yourself while your boys were gone. :) And yes, I hope it works out someday, too! :)

  6. Oh yes, those recorded messages say the stupidest things. Specially when they tell you your call is important to them 197 times!! Um, really?
