Why is it that every time noisy toys come into the house, they find their way to my office?

Although I suppose there is a tiny bit complaining going on on my part, in truth, it makes me super grateful that I have the kind of job where I can be near her all day. (Even when she is on the verge of contributing to noise pollution.)
