And just out of habit, I still do all my noisy chores while my kids are sleeping so that when they wake, they have a better listening environment. We may not spend our entire days working on language development we could use some serious de-languaging around here truth be known but old habits are hard to break. They sleep peacefully while I vacuum away. I have to be more careful not to vibrate the floor too much in regards to waking these kiddos! I try to run my washer, dryer and dishwasher all before they wake. Maybe that's why I still get up at 5 am!
