Quiet Children

Are getting into things.  At least my three year old is.

That is my Mary Kay foundation artfully squiggled on the stool and floor.  One of my eye shadows is gone.  She coated her legs in A&D.  She peed on the floor, got the step stool wet then dropped my makeup bag in it.  When I came in she was squeezing toothpaste right into her mouth.  Days like this make me want to work, and make me VERY glad I am not having more.  I was considering taking them to a wedding of one of DH's former youth kids, but we will be staying home while he goes.  I don't want to see what she will do out in public, and there is not enough notice to find a sitter.

Why does she have access to all this stuff?  And medicine bottles right there too.

She's a climber.  She also is unable to open medicine bottles-the only kid I know of that child proof caps actually work on.  I can't lock every single thing up, there simply isn't that much space in our house, so we teach them not to get into things.  That day she got bored, and escaped my sight for about five minutes.

Quoting CLEKate:

Wow, she's a quick one! Sorry for the mess, but no worries, it's just a phase!

My daughter never got into my makeup, but she would pull all the tissues out of the tissue box.  She would grab the box when I wasn't looking and scoot around behind the half wall between the living room and the foyer and pull them out one at a time, throw them up in the air and say "tissue" as it fell to the floor.  When she was 3, she threw cat litter in her fish tank.  Thankfully, the litter was fresh and I discovered the litter floating in the tank before it killed the fish.  I bought some silk leaves and put them in an empty baby wipe container so she could throw those up in the air instead of the tissues.

My mom always said that if your kids are quiet you better go see what they're doing, because it usually means they're into something they shouldn't be.

I can commiserate. I have the cutest picture of my son when he was 2 covered in glue holding a spool of thread. I was doing laundry and he tried to fix the loose end of thread.

Same child found the bottle of cornstarch baby powder in his room around age 2 and made it snow!

Yes, in my house, quiet is not a good thing!  Between my three year old, and my 3 dogs, quiet means BAD!

Lol whenever ds is too quiet I check on him because it means he's probably up to no good
