Suspicious Silence: Monday Quotes # 18

Silence is golden… unless you have a toddler. In that case, silence is very, very, suspicious. Fail Blog

The kids are finally playing nicely together. Suddenly you realize that you haven’t seen or heard any noises, good or bad, from them for at least 10 minutes. You should be worried. They are doing something they should not be doing.

Do not freak out. You need to find them first, then watch quietly from around a corner. Pick just the right moment, when they least expect it, then it’s time to freak out!

In the rare instance when they are not doing anything wrong you have 2 choices: let them play, or keep watching because any minute they’re probably start doing something they’re not supposed to be doing.

I found this little quote on Fail Blog. I used to check Fail Blog on a regular basis, until I got too busy. I think that I need to find just a little more time in my day. You should always make time for more laughing.

I'm a parent of two lovely (most of the time) children. I work full time out of the home and I don't cook well, bake, sew, or do crafty things. I keep my high heels and jewelry at my office because there's no point in having them at home.

    Haha, I can totally relate to this. I’m always suspicious when my toddler is way too quiet. He’s usually up to no good but he’s trying to be an adult and doing adult things. Yesterday I caught in the bathroom with the door closed, washing his own hands with soap and drying them and making a huge mess. How can I get mad at that? 🙂

    • You can’t get mad. But it baffles me that a 4yo who cannot let me go to the bathroom alone or with the door closed, now will not allow me to either be in the bathroom with him or leave the door open? When did that happen!

        I spent years without being alone in the bathroom, especially if I wanted to use the toilet. And the kids wanted to play with my limited make up supplies. My younger son Tiger loved to play with water in the sink, including watching fresh tampons blossom in the water. And I’m working on the blog post about Tiger and the Toilet.
