A quiet house might be the nicest thing around. I love when our home settles in for the night or the girls are out with someone other than me.
A quiet house might also be the most terrifying thing, for a mom, as was my experience this morning. I was catching up on some emails while the girls played when I realized that the house was… quiet. (cue climactic horror movie music)
Worse yet. Last time I heard the girls they were making their way towards the bathroom. (cue shrieks of horror)
OK, so it wasn’t too bad, I got off easy this time. They just got into my hair conditioner. I’m pretty sure they each ate a little and they were using it like lotion on their hands. When I told my eldest that it was not body lotion but more like hair lotion she promptly ran her hands through her hair. Rookie mistake on my part, I should have known better. My baby immediately copied her big sister. So I have two little girls running around with some extra conditioner in their hair today and thankfully that’s the worst of it. Phew!
Here’s to a noisy house for the rest of the day, except nap time.
