Ran into our right-across-the-hall neighbor, who works from home and has two kids…
Neighbor: “Sounds like you guys are really in the throes of Elmo-obsession!”
Me: “Oh god, yes! Can you hear the TV in the morning? I’m so sorry!”
Neighbor: “No, no. Never heard the TV. But every single day, like clockwork, between noon and 1, I hear you singing ‘Elmo’s Song’ over and over. I totally remember that phase when my kids made me sing that crap on repeat.”
Me: “Oh my god I know. It’s the WORST.”
Our nanny comes every day at noon and takes Nora to the playroom.
Noon to 1 is my alone time in the apartment.
