As I sit here in the quiet, well almost quiet. I can hear my son laughing hysterically, wrestling downstairs with my husband.

But as I sit here, I like to listen. I’m here hiding in my room cause being around my kids is just too much for me to handle right now.

Overstimulation sucks big time.

My ears were throbbing with their laughter. I knew I needed to get away.

But now I sit here in the quiet and listen. Funny thing is? I don’t get jealous of not being there to enjoy the laughter. I can actually really enjoy it now.

I can hear the birds chirping outside, my son laughing and finally? Feel my body relaxing.

But now as I type that? It makes me sad that I sometimes hafta step away from my children in order to enjoy them.

What type of person am i?
