All right, here we go again with Five Minute Friday – and, I was lucky enough to get the children participating this week again, so under my five minutes, you’ll find theirs as well.
Here are the rules from Gypsy Mama’s site:
For only five short, bold, beautiful minutes. Unscripted and unedited. We just write without worrying if it’s just right or not.
Won’t you join us?
1. Write for 5 minutes flat – no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking.
2. Link back here and invite others to join in.
3. Most important: comment and encourage the person who linked up before you.
OK, are you ready? Give me your best five minutes on:
Sometimes life is just too LOUD. Everyone is talking over everyone else – you can’t hear yourself think.
And, then all of a sudden, no one else is at home and it is quiet – too quiet.
And, then I get sad because I realize that the loud days of childhood are starting to come to a close. Anytime the kids are off at an event or camp or something, and it’s just me and moondoggy starting at each other I wonder – is this what it’s going to be like when they leave?
just quiet. No excitement?
So, I’m trying to treasure these loud days – even when they are so loud I don’t know how to cope because I know that the quiet is coming. And, I’ll take loud any day of the week – although quiet is nice in small doses – it helps you appreciate the loud even more.
I’m just hoping that as they grow, the noise will become more organized – more purposeful – so that maybe, just maybe, i stand a chance of keeping up and understanding what they are talking about.
Because really, in the end, that’s the most important thing – connections, understanding, and LOVE through the LOUD.

***note from momma: some of those words are pokemon, vocaloids, and Japanese words. If you didn’t understand it, don’t feel bad – I had to get her to explain it to me too.
I want to rock rock rock!
I want to rock rock!
There’s a feeling that you want me to turn down and I say No, no, No!
Ok, that was the start of one of my favorite songs “I want to Rock” and I’ll tell you another one of my favorites – well, the song is a very fun song but I can’t remember the name, But, there is another song that I like called I love Rock and Roll.
Some of the people out there don’t like the fact that rock and roll is loud.
The reason that rock and roll is loud is because it is amplified for the instruments.
They use an electric guitar – not a regular guitar – but an electric guitar which gives it a rock and roll sound.
Then there is the drums and when you push on the pedal it makes a specific sound.
There are other instruments that are also amplified. They use pianos and keyboards that are amplified and make a great song.
And, then there’s the singing. If the singing wasn’t loud, then you wouldn’t be able to hear what they are saying.
And, that’s the reason that almost all of rock and roll songs have amplified instruments.
It makes it sound great glorius that’s what rock and roll fans see in rock and roll.
Won’t you give 5 Minute Friday a try? I’d love to read yours – please let me know about it in the comments! (And, be sure to let comment-luv link you up.)
