I don't mean he's squealing all the time. I mean when he's talking HE'S ALWAYS SHOUTING AT US.  Bump is constantly sighing "Buddy, I'm right here. Why are you yelling?"

Sometimes he's excited, but usually he's just casually mentioning that he cleared Level Whatever on his Gameboy but HE'S MENTIONING IT SO LOUDLY I CAN HEAR HIM IN THE ATTIC. It's like sitting across the dinner table from a guy with a bullhorn. Or Aunt Bob when she's drunk.

If I had a dollar for every time I've reminded him "Use your inside voice, Billy Mays" I'd be a very wealthy woman.

Please tell me this is just a phase.

If it's a phase, they don't out grow it by 9 years. Will does the same thing. Oy.

I thought it was just my kid.

yeah my kid (she's nearly 5) shouts a lot too, and not 'cos she's angry. Only I didn't notice it for ages, until I had my ears syringed.

Two loud kids live at my house. It drives me nuts!
