The noise, the fun

Parent Bloggers and Generation Next asked us this week to talk about how life has changed since we had kids. Is it more wild around your house? More noisy? More just-a-bit-crazy round the edges?

Mine is. Where once we had quiet dinners and cozy evenings reading together, now we have family dinners and after-dinner matchbox races, miniature train extravaganzas, backyard expeditions to hunt for fireflies, and wii sports championships.

We have playdates instead of dinner parties, trips to the zoo instead of trips to the movies, and you’re as likely as not to interrupt a bunch of kids playing wildly in the family room if you drop by unannounced.

And you know what? I wouldn’t have it any other way.
