Why You Should Never Trust Two Quiet Kids
|The destruction of a 4 year old and 3 year old
I was having one of those days – the everything-is-getting-on-my-nerves-and-want-to-go-back-to-bed days. I hadn’t gotten a lot of sleep the night before because Baby E has decided to push her bedtime back to a crazy insane hour and that never puts me in a good mood.
We have a play room in the basement for the kids – a section that is just for them to run and play and watch a movie. We don’t like the kids running in the house except for the basement and on days where we just can’t get outside – it is a lifesaver room. … Sometimes.
Back to my everything-is-getting-on-my-nerves-and-want-to-go-back-to-bed day. Life with 3 kids can be hectic at times and at this particular time I was busy nursing Baby E to sleep and Big P and Princess R were just going crazy – like fighting and playing and singing – they were loud. I needed Babe E to sleep so when Big P and Princess R went down to the basement I didn’t fight it. If they were in a different room Baby E would sleep and I would have some silence.
What I didn’t know was that a BIG bag of awesome craft supplies I got from my mom was down there in their room. I had forgotten that I had just placed it there a few days earlier with intentions to put it away. I had no idea what was in that bag but was about to find out.
I was up in the living room with sleeping Baby E in my arms and it was quiet. I could hear the kids playing downstairs but they were quiet – a very rare thing around here so I just let Baby E sleep. That might have been a mistake.
When Baby E woke up I went downstairs to see what my relatively quiet kids were doing and I was met with a disaster. Apparently there was a big jar of gold glitter in the awesome bag of craft supplies and my kids got creative pretending it was snow.

I should have known – this is not the first time their silence has met me with a giant mess. Glitter is like near-impossible to get out and you will always find bits of it everywhere. I was thankful that Baby E got to take her much needed nap – but my poor husband had to spend his Sunday morning cleaning it up (with Big P’s help) and it took near 2 hours.
Have your kids surprised you with a massive mess when you think they are being good and playing quietly?
