What Works For Me Wednesday

Don't laugh (okay you can if you want to). But this little megaphone really works for me!

Superman and I have joked about getting one for a long time. We've picked them up at sales and put them back down. You see we live in a 2 story home and I feel like I'm always yelling down the stairs for someone. Then if a door is closed we're tap dancing on the floors to get the chickadees attention. (So now you know my dirty little secret.) . I hate yelling and I really don't want it in my life.
So sure enough we were at a tool store's side walk sale and found this for $5.99. I've used it quite a bit and I think it will come in handy when it's my turn to run Park / P.E. Day. I wish I had it this fall. (I used a whistle which was a big help.)
So now I can just call a Chickadees and not feel like I'm always yelling. That REALLY works for me!

Oh my word, that is so funny!!! You have never seen our home but basically I would be screaming, megaphone style, in their ears if I had that. There are basically no walls, it's wide open!!! Love it. Now, I know your secret. If you need a bigger one my hubby has it at school (p.e.teacher) it's rather on the large side. I could hear you at my house!!!

This is so funny! I may need one for calling kids in from the fields! Lisa~

oh, my gosh! too funny, I really need one of those... but knowing me, I would probably end up shouting into the megaphone, making me doubly obnoxiousness to my kids =)

Oh, I love it! Cute idea! :) I should get one of those things to call the kids in...we live on a farm in the foothills...lots of hollers and hilltops...not always easy for them to hear me! I have been known to go outside and blow the car horn to get their attention.
This is my first visit here. Nice post. :)
