The Weekly Wrap: January 30, 2022
Parenting makes you think about the oddest things.
The other day, our kiddo was walking around the kitchen with a wooden magnet stuck to the bottom of her foot. This is not the first time she's done this. She will deliberately step on a magnet and go tap-tap-tapping around the house. We think she likes the sound.
This got me thinking about all the random sounds I enjoy - the crunch of a gravel pathway under my shoes, the last gurgle of water as it goes down the bathtub drain, the satisfying clickety-click-chunk of the vacuum when it sucks up something bigger, the gentle rustle of thick paper pages being flipped, the soft smushy crunch of walking in new fallen snow.
So often I think of hearing being related to bigger things - music, conversation, sirens - but it's the little, everyday things I enjoy most. They're like aural details that round out the sensory experience. I'm beginning to think the details are why I love watching/listening to ASMR videos. It's satisfying and soothing.
What sounds do you enjoy?
