The worlds most beautiful sound...

Some say that the most beautiful sound you can hear is your babies first cry or first giggle or when your growing child says "Mummy" or "I love you". I disagree. I believe. The worlds most beautiful sound is...The key turning in the front door. The door opening, and a deep voice saying "I'm home!" And internally I scream "Thank fuck for that"!

Cue joyous yelping from me and my children. You see by 5:45pm we are quite frankly bored of each other. When 5pm comes I'm generally hiding in the kitchen, ramming half eaten cold waffles down my gob watching the clock. The children? They are trying to kill each other or are sadly watching Peppa. Again (on a side note if I watch the one where there is a hole in the road one more time? I'm going to smash my tele in. Fact). 

The joy I feel when he enters the house and I literally throw the children at him. Is paramount to me seeing him at the alter. Actually. Forget that. It's bloody better!


But. If he's late? Even if its five minutes late? He's the world worst human being alive. I do not care that there has been some unexplained traffic issue. Or even if your boss wanted to discuss with you that he wants to give you a pay rise. Where the hell are you? I have wept. I have shouted. Hung up on him. Screamed even. 

That five, ten or even (gulp) thirty minutes I am left waiting is just the bit that tips us all over the edge. But the joy of him coming home early? A feeling of such elation I could scream. Kids thrown. Kettle on. And I watch two episodes of the Real Housewives instead of one. Sigh. Happy days. 

So yes giggles, new born screams and "I love yous" are beautiful. But that key? In that front door? A total and utter. Lifesaver.

  3. Totally agree! As soon as my little boy hears Da-da's steps up to the front door... All responsibility is passed over! :). I have been known to pass the wee one over and go and lie down in a darkened room for half an hour! :)

  6. Totally get where you're coming from! When my kids were little I would literally count down the minutes from 3.45. Not that he was ever home before 6.30. It's got to 7 now and all he wants to do is eat his tea in peace, but it's still nice to know he's there.

  7. Lol. I don't have that glorious sound in my life. Work means staying overnight for my other half. So he sneaks in in the middle of the night after 2 nights away! Even though I know he's not coming, I do still long to hear the key in the door!!!

  8. Ha ha this is so true. My husband was 30 minutes late last week, yes there was a suspected bomb scare in town (turned out to be an ornament) but still he should have found a quicker way home!! we are currently watching tv to pass the time before he gets back tonight I am all worn out by Friday.

  9. Haha so true in our household as well. That Peppa Pig epi is just so much to handle too. When husband is a bit late both son & I would look out of the window and ask why is he late? While looking at our imaginary watch on our wrist. #pocolo

  11. I used to be able to relate to this! The difficult thing in our house is that Ross works from home and is in his office next door to the kitchen so I never really know if he is 'coming home'! Thank you for linking to PoCoLo :) x
