Life is not about getting to the destination, life is what happens to you on the way there.

Ear piercing blood curdling, seizure inducing....

Middle child has a problem with other people when they are listening to their headphones. If it's loud enough for the person to hear it, ,she screams that SHE can hear it and therefore it must be too loud. In the few days since Grandma bought the kids their own music playing devices, ,middlechild has tortured Firstborn and youngest with her whines and rants and complaints. She will sneak in there and turn it WAY up, she will sneak in there and turn it OFF. She will unplug headphones. She will hurl projectiles at the offender, and will pull earphones off the cords - ruining them.

All because she is annoyed at the faint "boom boom" of music that she is not listening to.

Last night, youngest had had enough of Middlechild's antics. On the way home from the store, middlechild yanked the cord out to quiet youngests earphones. Youngest let out the most EAR PIERCING blood curdling, involuntarily pee your pants its so loud, seizure inducing, plug your ears and it still hurts scream. DH and I nearly lost control of the car and went off the road. We thought she had SEVERED her leg. I turned around expecting to find a knife in her chest, protuding bone, or fountaining blood.... There was none of that thank goodness. Let me tell you, hell hath no fury like a set of parents thinking omigad-we-nearly-killed-ourselves-in-a-car-wreck-because-middlechild-unplugged-those-headphones-again.

All headphones and music playing devices are confiscated and youngest had a very sore bottom. Middlechild was also grounded for the night. I don't know what else to do with her.....

Thanks Grandma! (I am SO going to use the grandma gene when I get older - I am SO going to do it. I can hardly wait to torture my own kids with toys for my grandkids... yeah!)
