That moment when it all goes quiet…

Every parent knows that moment all too well. The house goes quiet. Your toddler is no were to be seen or heard.

Decision time.

Do you finish whatever you’re doing in peace and deal with the potential disaster zone later? Or do you go check the monster is still alive and stop them drawing penises in permenant marker on your bedroom walls?

Yesterday, everything went quiet and I took option one. I found Little Miss quietly reading The Snail & The Whale on my bedroom floor. She then crawled into my lap and asked me to read it to her. It was one of those beautiful motherhood moments.

One hour later it went quiet again and lulled into a false sense of security from the morning’s charming episode, I finished what I was doing.

Oh Amie. So optimistic. So foolish.

It could have been a lot worse. Although, she’s getting cheeky. She kept blaming me for the mess!

    Hi Amie, we’ve got to laugh (or we’d cry!). I think both pictures are equally as cute and let’s be honest here, was LittleMiss really creating a mess or was she in fact tidying up after her very untidy Mum?

      Ha! Thanks for the vote of confidence Deb! To be honest, if all the mischief she gets up to is pulling all the diapers from the cupboard, I should be grateful. Could be a lot worse! Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to comment.

    Been there! Obviously things get better as they get older but I think with ours we were lulled into a false sense of security with our boys, both of whom were much better behaved than we ever gave them credit for. Then Kara came alon, and she is just a whirling dervish of destruction. Oops.
