J and I were in the Apple store the other day and I tried on these really cool headphones. I could seriously not hear anything other than the music coming out of the iPod. J was 1 ft away from me, talking to me and I could see his lips moving and couldn’t even hear a sound. Wow. I decided that since my parenting toolbox is currently depleted, that perhaps this could help. AND…they look really, really cool, too. I can so see myself wearing these around my house, smiling, dancing when me kids have gone haywire. Sound affects us so differently than any other sense. When I am scared in a movie but I want to still see it, I turn it on mute and, it’s not as scary.
Here is the link to the cool, Dr. Dre BEATS headphones. Every mom should have a pair.
