I have a dog. A big one. His barks are loud and thunderous even though he’s a total lover.
I also have kids that nap.
Are you seeing where I am going with this?
The doorbell sends the house into complete and total chaos – with dog barking and running, kids waking up and screaming (and then also running) and me trying to shush and stop the frantic dog from crashing into the front door (have I mentioned he’s blind?).
I needed a solution, I had a Sharpie, and this is what I came up with. Hopefully they take the hint, because the tape on the doorbell wasn’t working! 😀
I wrapped a Styrofoam frame with burlap (because anything harder knocks on the door when it’s windy – UGH!), looped a black S with twine and added the faux succulent for a splash of drought resistant color. I stuck the sign on the S with some Scotch mounting squares and hung my new creation on my door, with a little prayer for some sweet silence.
I had a friend that said, ” I NEED THAT!” so I thought… hmm… maybe there might be more of us out there, caught in the no-doorbells-at-naptime phase, so I whipped up a free printable for those of you with dogs or babies or BOTH!
Blessings & Prayers for Sweet Silent Naptimes,
