Shut up Puleeze!
The noise is tremendous. Hard to imagine 3 little kids can make this much noise. I yell at them to be quiet, but they don’t listen. I yell shut up and receive no more response than before.
I long for the soundless evenings when their father is here and all it takes is a look and they all shut up promptly.
“Daddy’s home!” I yell into the din.
All 3 kids immediately shut up and run to the door. It opens and they hug him.
“Have you been good girls for mommy?”
“Yes, daddy, just like everyday.”
