My neighbours have multiple kids dropped off in the morning. Around 4/5 cars stop in the morning so i'm guessing 4/5kids. Ages range from say 2-5. Plus her own (nearly 2 i think).

So that is atleast 5 kids, maybe 6.

I have 2.

I NEVER hear them - not ever. I hear my two (all.day.long!) - i hear my other neighbours kids (she has 3 boys). But i never ever hear these kids. Except in the evening when the (parents i'm assuming) come and pick them all up again.

How do you think they have 5 kids in the house without making a peep? Whats her secret? Do you think it would work with my noisy ones?! laughing2.gif

She could be drugging them and they sleep all day, or they sit in front of the tv all day and eat.

Or they could all just love being at her place and are very well behaved children.

I gather as she is running a family day care that she would have heaps of cool toys and activities set up for them to do all day to keep them occupied with stuff being rotated all the time. It's probably much more interesting than their own houses, where I know my kids used to get bored with their toys in 5 minutes and would constantly be bugging each other or whining that they were bored.  rolleyes.gif

If she is a family day care person, then my guess is that a) the kids are better behaved, because they are at someone else's house, and b) she is sitting with them and engaged with them all.day.long. I know my kids are at their most noisy when they are doing their own thing.

She locks them in the cupboard Tounge1.gif

Seriously though I imagine that she is a family day carer or something and has lots of exciting stuff for them to do.

Yep I agree with this. Also you can't really hear my kids (even though they are NOISY) from outside when they are inside. Its only when they are out on the deck, or in the backyard that you can hear them outside.

She puts them in her secret soundproofed basement and forces them to print t-shirts with pithy sayings to sell on the internet.

She gets away with it because she calls it craft time.

Obviously she runs family day care and I'm guessing they are perhaps doing crafts and watching TV.  That or she does lock them in the downstairs dungeon lol

Knock on the door and ask to borrow something (a can opener because yours just broke?) and see if you can glean her secret!
