The Sounds of Change

Newborn cries in the dark night
Moniter crackling as the sound increases.
Voices raised in laughter during the
Games of hide and go seek.
Building forts of pillow and blankets
While Rafi sings in the background.

"Mom, she doesn't like me anymore!"
Car keys jingling and doors slamming.
Voices raised in cheering during the
Games played on turf and diamonds.
Making popcorn and plates of nachos
While Beyonce sings in the background.

The years fly by...children grow
The sounds flow and ebb too.
But through it all love remains.

  1. oh, i'm waayyy to mushy sentimental these days for this!! Love it...and it's so true. Fun to think back on the "sound track" of their growing up...from pooh and disney, trough rap (not my favorite stage) and on to a pretty ecclectic collection of tunes! It would be neat to get them to think back on what songs match different ages for them!

  2. I never thought about how the sounds change as the children do. It's a wonderful cacophony that we're blessed to hear.

  3. Sweet....the love is always there no matter how the years go by......

  4. I can hear this! A whirlwind tour of childhood, ever shifting, always noisy! :)

  5. I remember. Changes, at first, was terrifying for me as a mother but then I got use to it. Thanks for the reminder.

  6. I love the juxtaposition of then and now. Even when I think of the sounds of our house three years ago they're so different from what they are now

  7. I loved that last line!! Such a great post!
