What is your first thought when your kid/kids get quiet?

I was cleaning and all of a sudden I realized it was quiet! My first thought was uh oh! I went into the living room to see what the quiet was all about. I found my 2 year old sitting in the corner looking up at me and pointing to his stomach and proudly saying "tattoo tattoo!" He has got a black permanent marker and had colored "tattoos" all over his belly. I couldn't help but smile :)

  • I have twin boys who are 16 months old and when i dont hear them i know something is up. I am a smoker and go outside to smoke when i dont hear them i know im in for it when i go back in... i have came in and found them in their bedroom with an entire box of cereal dumped in the floor and they were just smiling and eating it... ive came in with every diaper i had on the floor everywhere and every wipe pulled out of the box one at a time and shredded everywhere.. ive came in to them with my computer mouse and keyboard in the floor being chewed on!!! All of this is sooo aggravating but so funny i cant help but laugh.. they like it when i go outside to smoke because they get into everything they know they cant usually mess with!!! They are just too smart.
