Over the past year or so we have had quite a few episodes of the house falling silent. It is then up to us to go and hunt around looking for something, anything that is out of place or not right.
The first time that I was introduced to this phrase of ‘Silence is golden, unless you have a toddler. In that case, silence is very, very suspicious’ was when Mabel took it upon herself to draw all over the hallway wall. The thing was I wasn’t the one that noticed it even though I had been at home with her all day, but my husband did when he got home from work. It had then dawned on me that Mabel had gone very quiet that day for a little while before coming to see me in the kitchen. Now I knew why.
You see it does not matter if you buy them loads of toys to play with or these large expensive interactive devices that are meant to help with learning. When you have a toddler who is curious about the things around them especially things they are not allowed to touch or do, of course, they are going to do what they want.
It is so unbelievable how Mabel and Martha, these two little cuties, can cause so much mess and sometimes damage, and these pictures are just a handful of some of the things they have got up to. I am sure there will be more to come and of course, my girls are not the only ones that do this. I bet you will find every parent has been in the same situation and has a story or a photo to share.
What has your child got up to when they have gone silent?
