    haha.... We aren't exactly quiet around him. We are semi-quiet though when we get him down for a nap simply to keep him from waking up and demanding to play again, but by semi-quiet I mean we take him to bed and try not to disturb him so he thinks it's playtime.

    In the car or when we are watching TV, we definately don't really adjust the volume at all because of him.


    That being said..... there's no guarantee we'd be able to get him to take a nap during the time of the movie... and even if he did fall asleep going into the movie, the first time there's a major explosion in that surround sound theater (which won't take long with the movies I wanna go see), best case is he wakes up and wants to play. Either way, it's not so much that we are worried about Gus and the movie, it's more that we are worried about being "that family" who has the loud baby in the theater. (Baby awake right now means baby not wanting to be still.) He's also in that teething and just starting to get super-mobile stage, so there's always the potential for crankiness or his just wanting to go explore.... something I wouldn't really say is something we'd want to have to deal with in a stadium seating theater, in the dark, with those nasty theater floors. lol

    And actually....

    Seriously? We brought the 4mo old baby to Disney, complete with fireworks, parades, and loud attractions...... and the occasional loud table-side singers. You honestly think we are worried about him be around loud situations? :rotfl:

    First time Mom.... and super protective and attached. And around here, I don't really know a lot of people, so it makes it difficult finding someone she's comfortable leaving looking after Gus.

    Better shot when we are in NJ, but then she feels bad asking her Parents to look after Gus since they help out so much with so many things.

    This is hysterical. My son can sleep through anything. I bet, even to this day, I could probably just stick him near a freight train or vaccuum cleaner and he would fall asleep automatically. Autonomic training at its best. . .lol.

    Its not the awake time. . .its not being quiet around sleep time. It works when you start them real young. . .All I had to do was put Brandon in the car and he would fall asleep. . .then we could go into the movies and watch whatever we wanted. . .he would sleep through it. . .lol.

    I was not a big fan of sitters either. Wouldn't leave him with my parents because they smoke, my aunt and uncle had two grandchildren already that they watched and my friends had never been around kids much. His father's mom would watch him. That was the best. She was great, but we would have to drive at least an hour to have her. That's a lot when all you want to do is go to the movies for a couple hours.

    Multiquote Darcy.... You're slacking. ;)

    I guess our problem is mostly the curiousity. He can sleep thru some noise if he wants too. The problem is the wanting too. If he stirs and seems something interesting (or someone), he'll decide to stay awake so he can play. If he stirs and doesn't see much he's interested in (like, still being in the car), he's just as likely to decide to go back to sleep.


    Problem is Rachel doesn't currently have a "reliable" car. So it's hard to do the "stick him in the car to nap" thing on a regular basis. we'll do it on the weekends sometimes, but during the week there isn't much opportunity with my going to work.

    Just wanted to pop in! I agree to get them used to sleeping with noise, my kid had too because if where we lived at the time (noisy street) and now she sleeps through anything. But, I had been told over and over again to drive her in the car to put her to sleep, this works for a lot of kids, but never worked for her, she cried bloody murder in the car always, was torture for us both.

    So DC, figure out what works for you guys and Gus Gus! The grow up too fast, enjoy all the little things while you can! My boo is about to finish 3rd grade, where did the time go????

    :welcome: to the group! Feel free to pull up a chair, pour yourself a drink from the bar over there :drinking1:, and just have fun joining in the conversations around here. We can have a bit of conversational ADD sometimes, so don't worry if you fall behind or miss a part of the conversation since it's VERY easy to just jump into the middle of the current topic. :goodvibes:goodvibes

    :lmao::lmao: I'm starting to wondering If I should add " & Gus-Gus advice" to the thread topic. ;)

    :welcome: back!

    You have my number.... and the standing offer to come hang out or meet Gus. You are more than welcome to come meet Gus and spend some time with him (and us. ;) ) anytime.

    I figure you'd probably prefer to meet Gus.... and Rachel for that matter.... Before we started calling you to come do us babysitting favors. ;)

    Welcome. Feel free to jump right in. We are kinda quiet over the weekends so expect conversation to pick up during the week.
