the Sound of Silence

Any parent knows that silence is usually not a good thing with kids. I somehow seem to forget this from time to time.
The other day I was happily getting housework done (which is a rare thing with 2 girls and 2 dogs to keep up with). K was helping me sweep and C was playing with toys in the living room. Everything seemed to be great. Then it dawned on me that I hadn't heard any noise from C in a few minutes. I feared that Chubby Kong was on the loose...

and I was right.

I walked in the room and first saw her accomplice


Then I found my sweet baby...

who got into the chalk we keep in the art cabinet.



How could anyone be upset with such a sweet, innocent, dirty face?!

Ahhh yes, silence is far more worrisome than chaotic, joyful noise. She is so sweet, I love those photos!

Joy said...

Indeed. She looks perfectly innocent...maybe it was the dog. ;)

Oh Dearie me, I think I would have gobbled her up with kisses! *giggle "Chubby Kong"*

oh!!! so cute.
it's funny how sometimes the silence is good--oh, she's really climbing into an activity and focusd! and sometimes not so good--uh-oh, she's eating chalk.
i'd like to think i can intuit the difference from the next room, but sadly this is not always the case!

: ) Too cute!

Lisa said...

No way could you be angry with that cute little face!

Wow, we have a lot in common...2 big goofy dogs, black cats, little girls, red hair and LOTS of freckles, love to sew and the need to live a simple life. I am still laughing over the post about the newspaper all over the dog bed!

ROFL! Yes, very hard to resist! I agree, silence + children (generally) = trouble.
