I can tune chaos out like nobody's business.
I've had this conversation with many mothers, and fathers too. Seems like each of us has a different tolerance meter on what you are willing to put up with and just how much. My husband can't stand loud noise and fidgeting, especially in the car. I can have someone kicking my seat and tossing a soccer ball against the floor and still listen to tunes on the radio and mentally compose my grocery list.
If you wait until the last minute to ask me to complete a school form or bombard me the second I walk in the door, expect me to get real crabby, and real fast.
Especially if I'm hungry and need a cocktail!
