The Sound Of Silence

You are sitting in your living room (kitchen, bedroom, etc) and all of a sudden you realize that there is complete silence in your home, and you have a toddler or toddlers, what do you do??

What do you think??

Are they curled up reading a book or looking at pictures?

Are they sound asleep??

Are they watching a Barney DVD??

Or are they creating a ruckus, that you can't hear?

It happened to me twice today and I wish I would have gotten a picture.

The first time was this morning. I was sitting at my desk and all of a sudden I realized my little red headed angel was to quiet.

So, I go to investigate like anyone would do.

I call out to her, no answer.

I call out again as I'm getting closer to the room that I know she is in, and I hear a giggle.

I say to myself: "self, what is that smell?!? It smells like peanut butter. Lots and lots of peanut butter."

She comes running out of the bedroom, covered in Jif Peanut Butter. From head to toe. I investigate the room. Our bedroom. Yep, peanut butter on the pillows, bed, wall, if it was within slathering distance it got peanut butterized (my word for that mess).

Like I said, I should have got a picture. But couldn't think quick enough about that. I just wanted to get her cleaned up.

The second time today, was just a bit ago.

This time, my little red headed angel is sound asleep in the middle of the bed.

Ha ha! So great. You should have got a picture, or maybe you did.

Didn't get a picture, wish I did. You know it still smells like peanut butter in the bedroom this morning.

That is so funny!

Ha cute!! You could have so posted that on if only you got a picture.

My toddler hasn't gotten 'there' yet being 16 months old, but I'm sure I will see something like that soon that is blog worthy.

I have two babies and the only time it gets quiet like that is when they have gotten hold of the baby wipes and are throwing them all over their room. Luckily, we have our kitchen sectioned off with a baby gate, or peanut butter would all over our walls, too!

Oh the fun of it all. Yesterday she got a hold of a brand new bottle of Smart Balance cooking oil. The floor was like an ice-skating rink. Ahhhhhh to be 2 again.

Can I just tell you how happy I am that your child was out of your sight for 2 minutes and you didn't put out an APB???? I am so tired of these helicopter parents but I find out on blogs, a lot of mothers actually let their children be CHILDREN and discover things on their own, even if it means a boo boo or two. Or way too much peanut butter all over the world. I'm not saying let your kids run wild for hours while you watch the soaps, but letting your child out of your sight for an instant is actually OK!!

Funny...though now you dont' have any more peanut butter. What to do?
