The Sounds of Summer (Two More Sleeps ’til School Returns)

I’m hungry.

What are we doing today?

He touched me.
She looked at me.
NO! STOP IT! GET OUT!
MUUUUUUUM!

I’m hungry.
What can I eat now?
(you’re literally eating right now)
Yeah, but what can I have?

Mindless shrieking.

I DON’T WANT TO (insert perfectly reasonable request here)!!!
THAT’S NOT FAIR!!
UGH! I have to do EVERYTHING!

Doors slamming.

Muuuuuuuuuuum? Where are you?

Can we go to the beach / zoo / moon today?

Can I have (list of ten friends) over today?

I’m bored.
No, that’s boring.
No, that’s boring.
No, I don’t even like (pretty much all of the toys in their bedroom).

Can I have something to eat?

I’m hungry. Again.

Random wailing.

Muuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuum.

Something that sounds a lot like murder.

I DIDN’T DO IT. THEY DID IT!
NO THEY DID IT!
Harmonic screams.

Chanting.
(what is that?)
(…that’s me)
TWO MORE SLEEPS. TWO MORE SLEEPS.

TWO MORE SLEEPS. TWO MORE SLEEPS. TWO MORE SLEEPS. TWO MORE SLEEPS. TWO MORE SLEEPS. TWO MORE SLEEPS. TWO MORE SLEEPS. TWO MORE SLEEPS. TWO MORE SLEEPS. TWO MORE SLEEPS. TWO MORE SLEEPS. TWO MORE SLEEPS. TWO MORE SLEEPS. TWO MORE SLEEPS. TWO MORE SLEEPS. TWO MORE SLEEPS. TWO MORE SLEEPS. TWO MORE SLEEPS.
