No Loud Noises

Katie doesn't like loud noises. She hates the vacuum cleaner, runs out of the stall in restrooms where the toilets flush noisily, and has worn ear plugs to every concert we've ever attended.

I told her it's really odd that a child who is quite loud herself doesn't like for other things to be loud.

"It's because I don't like for anything else to drown me out," she said, grinning.


  1. the toilets were when I was 8!

  2. Oh that sounds like our youngest.She has always been very sensitive to loud noises like trucks and people talking very loud, the driers in public toilets ect, and yet she can be as loud as she wishes.I think that it is because she is in control of her own noise but she can not turn off external noise when it becomes too much. She has a lot of sensory issues and we have learned that sound is just one of them.
