The Art of the Whisper
The Yoys' bedroom doors are very close together. When Little E is napping, Big E and I are often in his room or the bonus room.
In a whisper, I'll say to Big E:
Please whisper, Little E is napping.
Big E responds in full, if not extra amped-up-on-purpose, volume:
No-whisper, like mommy is doing right now.
Ugh, I give up. Is it really hard to teach this concept? I'm being honest, I really don't know when toddlers can learn to control the volume of their voice.
Til then I'll be praying I finally discover the mute button somewhere on Big E's body.
Or maybe earplugs for Little E.
