I share the Joys and struggles of raising 9 children; from the most outrageous things people have said to us to how I manage a large household. I share what my children have taught me and why I'm not your stereotypical quiverfull mom.
Silence is the absence of movement. So if your children are being quiet the thought would be there is lack of movement. And lack of movement is never good. You might find them with their hand in their diaper playing with the contents - you can infer what you will from that image. Maybe you will find them trying to dislodge whatever it is they just stuck up their nose or in their ear. Or they might be trying to hide whatever it is they just got into. The last of these scenarios is frequently the case at our house. The Dh remarked that we have more photos of my 3yr old covered in stuff than not. I'll let you be the judge. Does this seem like a lot of pictures of one kid covered in stuff?
Blue Frosting? who knows.
Peanut butter, his favorite. He was often covered in this. Flour, That was fun to clean up. Lipstick, the kind that does not wash off. Not to be outdone by the fingernail polish on his face. He did try to paint his nails though.
He likes blue. Remember the blue paint from a little while ago?
I don't know, but I think maybe silence isn't all that its cracked up to be. I think I would rather them be loud and obnoxious so I know what they are up to. Silence is not golden, unless its the form of peanut butter all over your toddler. Usually its multicolored: red, pink, white and blue, but mostly blue.
