I can't ignore it at all, but that is most likely down to my knackered ears and the strange hearing range I have - almost superhuman ability to hear certain noises.
Ear plugs from B&Q are crap anwyay.
But to the OP seriously get some. Even if it's a pair each. They will save one of you from stress sometime.
The whole fatherhood thing is bizarre.
I'm sat in the house in Bangkok just now. AC is blazing away, remote control for it is long lost, little Q is sleeping beside me on the bed. She's making little sounds as she sleeps and I check on her when she unsettles. Mrs Q is downstairs talking to the MIL and SIL about something or other.
I'm quite happy sat here, listening to music, typing crap on here, sipping a Chang and watching little Q, because that is my new role.
When she was first born, I had that whole adoration nonsense for a few days, then I had to go back to work and I can honestly say, I just didn't get the whole baby thing.
This holiday has been the first time I've really been able to spend with her, and I honestly think (bar the horrendous cost of it all) travelling across the world to visit in-laws with little Q and Mrsq and letting little Q experience it all has been worthwhile.
Before we got here she was chatty, but only a bit, but within 48 hours of being here and experiencing life in Thailand, she started babbling away on an evening for hours on end.
As I said before the whole fatherhood thing is strange, I've just reread that last section and thought, who honestly cares other than me, and that is what is great about it.
