Why kids are fat, deaf and annoying

Although it doesn't sound like it from my title, I truly love kids. Well... most kids. In fact, I wanted to be an elementary school teacher. Anyway...

So, I'm working from home today and it's beautiful outside. Mild temps, sun is out, slight breeze. Perfect to open up the balcony door and get some fresh air inside. But... the kids in the NEXT BUILDING OVER are so freaking loud. Their windows or door must be opened because I can hear them playing the Wii. In fact, it's so loud I know that they're playing the bowling game. Did I say the noise is coming from THE NEXT BUILDING!?!?!?!

First of all, when I was a kid (you know, it was so long ago) and home during the summer, my mom scooted us out the door in the morning and we played outside. All. Day. Long. Thankfully, we lived in the middle of no where, so we were free to run, scream and play. When we were inside, we had to read for at least an hour a day (no problem there, I've always loved to read) and when we were allowed to watch TV, it was at a normal volume level.

Grrr... kids like that annoy me. Really, the parents that sit there and don't make their child behave irritate me more, but that's an entirely different story. I'm really not an orge... I love kids (that behave)! Really!

HA! Yeah, I apparently grew up by you, because I was outside in the middle of nowhere all day too. Kids these days. Damn little bastards.

We were never allowed to play inside all day either. Unless it was Barbies, quietly in our room.

Shouldn't they be in school?

Every once in a while a tv lazy day is ok, but when it is nice out, you should be outside! Or playing inside. Bet not sitting around all day!

I have to say that my kids are LOUD outside. I constantly remind them that the houses are close together and no one needs to hear the details of whatever game they are making up. I have no idea why my kids are so loud since I am a quiet person, but there doesn't seem to be much I can do about it.

Schools don't start in Michigan until after Labor Day. Gotta try to extend the tourism season as long as possible! :)
