Today she asked me to pop one of those big air filled bubbles for packing boxes, I told her okay, that it was going to be loud, I cover her ears and back up. She said okay and did so, I popped it and she looked at me, sat down and stared. I asked her if she was okay and she busted out crying and ran to mama. Made me feel so bad, I tried to tell her.
I know how she feels. Some times I'll bump an air dump valve. I know exactly what it is but it makes me jump every time.

LOL, I am told the same thing. That is unless I'm getting kneed in the back or smothered with a pillow over my head. Warning, warning -- danger Will Robinson!

Why you hanging out in a cemetery? And why aren't I invited instead of some other guy?

We're going to see the grave that apparently says, "victim of the beast" and "666"
You're always invited, I just feel bad for him. I would NEVER make you watch Twilight.

When my oldest was till in the womb I would sometimes talk to him and try to feel him move. Once I sneezed (my sneezes are like a cannon going off) and he jumped something fierce. It was like something out of Roger Rabbit, like he was trying to run out of the womb! Freaking hilarious. I felt like I might have damaged his hearing before he was even born. Anyhow, as the two were born and grew, they got used to my booming voice and really don't respond to it like other kids do. I can wake the dead two counties over and they will hardly notice. Other kids will jump to attention and say "YES SIR!" but my boys think it is just another day with Dad. Other parents marvel at this fact. I have inadvertently made kids cry just when I say hello because of my voice.

On the other hand I have conditioned the boys since they were very young to respond to a singly sharp whistle and their heads snap around. It annoys them somewhat, they have had to explain it to friends sometimes. But if we are across a convention center from each other and I whistle, they immediately know where I am and look at me to see what I want.

Comes in very handy. I recommend it as a tool for all parents!

When I was pregnant with my first child, they were testing the fire alarms at work. My poor little baby had a fit inside me at the loud noise.

I have a way of getting my kid's attention in a crowd, too. My daughter's nick name is Lou and I have a high pitched, sharp, quick LOU call. She can hear it far away and she wears hearing aids. LOL

Hmmm... My parents had a neighbor that would blow up balloons and give them to his kids and pop them with a pin while they were holding them half the time to teach then that life sucks and to be tough.
