Poor Lu. I feel like all I have done for 4 weeks is tell her to be quiet. I never realized until Milo came that she is the Noisiest Person in America. Her whisper is a scream. She sings constantly. She has been forbidden to close any door in the house because she can't close one without slamming it. And making me yell at her. And waking her brother. It is unclear at this point if it's her yelling or mine that is actually waking Milo.

I was trying to explain "inside voice" as in "the kind of voice you use in your classroom." She said, "Mom, I'm pretty loud in the classroom." Indeed.
