Out of the Blue

MrsBlue is home from work today, which should have provided a perfect opportunity to continue the discussion of whether to pop an air conditioner into one of the windows in the living room. That is, of course, if it wasn't for the rainstorm that has taken the local temperature down to 66F at the moment, which I'm pretty sure is not going to help my argument. As usual, the key to life is timing.

I read a "how dare you" article just on the side story of the 3 month old in the theater... Apparently babies will sleep right through a loud movie and we're not allowed to criticize parents for taking an entertainment break while their baby sleeps.

Whomever wrote that article is an idiot. Even if the baby would sleep through the noise, sleep deprivation isn't the point. The damage caused to the still developing infant ear drum during pre-adolescent growth by loud noises of any kind is the point. It is for that reason that they carry small ear muffs that look like headphones at baby stores. (alternatively search them out on Amazon) Remember when the Saints won the Super Bowl and Drew Brees was accepting the trophy, wife and baby next to him? If you can find the video on Youtube, or you have a really good memory, you might notice a set on his kids ears. It wasn't because the baby had been listening to the play-by-play of the game. It was to protect the kid's ears in all that noise at the Superdome. With that in mind, it is entirely possible that the 3month old infant at this particular movie did in fact have a pair of said muffs. Just saying....I mean, it isn't like that would be a detail most reports would focus on.

Protip for that author and any sympathizers: If you can't let go of the movie theater and concerts long enough for the kid to at least get old enough to use a baby sitter, perhaps you aren't ready for parenthood. Parents need breaks, believe me I know, but parenting is as much about sacrifice as anything else on the planet. Perhaps more so.
