Yup, this is one of the things I put on my Christmas wish list, and Santa was obliging: big yellow noise-blocking headphones. I know. Terrible, isn’t it?

“What big headphones you have, Mommy!”
“The better to ignore you with, my dear.”

These headphones are excellent at blocking out:

-Zelda music
-Gabbey talking to the Zelda game
-Gabbey playing Zelda music on her ocarina or viola
-Gabbey whistling and/or humming Zelda music
-Gina practicing the flute
-Gina and Gabbey arguing
-Phineas & Ferb
-Wizards of Waverly Place

Due to the high-pitched, shrill voices of the title characters, the headphones cannot quite block out:

-Sunny with a Chance
-Hannah Montana

They absolutely do not block questions like:

“Mom, can I have candy for dinner?” and …
“Mom, can I have all the money in your wallet?”
so quit trying, Gabbey!
