the birds in my yard.
the toaster popping up waffles for breakfast.
the pool guys outside my bathroom.
crayons coloring on the table.
"mom, I need help with floppy." spelling words.
"mom, I gotta go potty!"
"popcorn popping" a dozen times.
the rrrrrrip of packaging tape at the shipping store.
the pleasant voice of the teller at the bank.
primary songs in the car
squealing on the tire swing at the park.
"mom, my state is botswana!"
tears on the phone during a great session
the buzz of a very loud insect stuck in between my window and screen.
complete silence during naptime.
"push me higher!"
scooter wheels flying across my patio.
my refrigerator running.
the weed-eater next door.
water washing strawberries.
three very loud boys in my backyard being complete boys.
doors opening and slamming.
me crunching tortilla chips.
"oh man, broccoli?"
pork chops sizzling on the grill.
