Life’s Little Moments was describing her girls dressing up and it made me think of the several times a week when our girls do.
We, too, have wood floors and while I prefer them by the ton over carpeting they do seem to magnify sound.
Here is a little look into dress up time.
I have 4 girls who are dressed in their princess dresses, tiaras and princess shoes running around clunking and scraping and clicking all over our wood floors. How it sounds depends on the child. Our 2 year old isn’t as loud but she walks twice as fast so there are a lot of clickities in a row. Our oldest is 10 and she stomps so while there are less steps she makes up for it with gusto. The two middle girls are usually sliding all over the place (click, clack, scrape then a loud thump as they slide sideways into the wall) as they all run screaming trying to get away from their brother “Batman” who is swooping in.
The baby watches them with great fascination as I bang my head against the wall. 🙂
I wouldn’t trade it for the world.
