I meant to write about this awhile ago but never got around to it.
It’s something I noticed while talking to Lizze on the phone while I was at the store. I often hear people refer to their house as being a zoo.
However, in my case, it sounds a bit different. While zoo could definitely be used to describe the Lost and Tired household, it’s not the first thing that comes to mind when I hear all the screaming through the phone.
It have you ever walked in to a pet shop, not a big chain store, but a old fashioned pet shop? When you walk in all you hear are birds chirping, hamster wheels turning and maybe a puppy barking.
When I call home to check on things while I’m out and about, that’s exactly what it sounds like. Every single time I call when the kids are awake, it sounds like the old fashioned pet shops in used to frequent as a kid.
It’s actually a pleasant sound on my end of the phone and brings fond memories to the surface for me to briefly relive.
However, it’s a wholly different experience in person..
It’s just one of those weird things… Nothing profound but I thought I would share anyways.
