5 Things Kids Do When They're Quiet

Kids will be kids. They can talk, scream and constantly ask you things throughout the day. They behave and then they can misbehave a second later. Parents love to have a break now and then, just to hear the peace. But when the kids are home and it's quiet... a little too quiet. Then it can make you a little nervous. Well it makes me nervous!!
What 5 things can your kids get up to when they are quiet...?

1. Playing in the bathroom. Oh the joys of finding them in the bathroom, soaked through. Toilet roll down the toilet, toothpaste and shampoo everywhere and on the kids too!

2. Drawing on walls. Most kids think they're artists and we praise them for their art work BUT WHY OH WHY! draw on the walls?!!

3. In your bedroom. Oh yes. You tell them every single day NOT to go into your room. But you end up finding them jumping on your bed, taking something and loosing it, oh and emptying all your cupboards and draws. Don't forget plastering themselves in make up and painting their nails too!

4. Sleeping. Why do kids feel the need of napping about an hour before bedtime? Even though you would love it if you could leave them to sleep, they haven't had any tea and you know it wouldn't be worth it when they wake up in the middle of the night at so damn early in the morning!

5. Hiding. Ever had that time when the kids were quiet. You go to check up on them, too see what they are doing. But. You can't find them. You shout their name and then 10 minutes after you hear giggles coming from the wardrobe! Happened to me... plenty of times.

I have experienced every single one of those above. Although, Mia is older now so she can happily sit down and colour or write. But when she was younger she was a right terror. Elliw is still at that age of exploring and pushing my buttons, sometimes Mia will join her too!

Have you ever experienced any of the above? If not, what do your children get up to when they are quiet?

  1. Oh, god yes. Those moments where it just goes so completely silent and you just know they're up to something. She's progressed on to smearing my makeup up over her face (and the bedsheets and the walls); it used to be Sudocrem all up her arms. And the thing that really gets me, if I just gave her a pot of blusher to play with, she'd have NO INTEREST AT ALL. How does that work, eh? #bestandworst

  9. Haha YES! Alfie locked himself in the loo the other day to have a poo, I was instructed to 'stay away', all was quiet and I went in after a couple of mins to find a whole loo roll ripped up and stuffed in the loo!Nightmare. Thanks for linking up to the #bestandworst :-) x

  11. My twins are 18 months old, so not quite here yet...BUT there is a photo of me about 3 years old emptying ALL of the drawers in my parents bedroom. I still really enjoy having a clear out now. Not sure why they were so angry really?!? #Fridayfrolics

  12. Apart from no.3 being quiet is pretty much always a bad sign ain't it?! #FridayFrolics

  13. I'm just beginning to realise the panic that follows realising my child is quite now that she's turning into a toddler. In the past week I've found her halfway up the stairs (cue panic stair gate fitting), eating dog food and licking the toilet roll! #TheList

  18. YES! I have one of these little people in my house. She is into everything. Silence is suspicious here. Visiting from Let Kids Be Kids linkup.

  19. Oh yes, I have had most of those, though I think I am incredibly lucky not to have had the drawing on the walls. Quiet is nice, but very suspicious! ;)
