If you have a toddler, you know that silence isn't golden. Silence means that they are probably doing something to get into trouble. I shared with you last month about how Grace drew on her closet doors. Well she's found some new ways to get into trouble lately.
Last Friday morning, I realized that I hadn't heard her in a while and I got worried. I found her in our bedroom with a dry erase marker. I still have no clue where she found it, but this was her artistic masterpiece:
Later that day I found her in the guest bathroom. She had pulled every last bit of paper off of a full toilet paper roll and was shredding it into the bathtub.
This morning I found her in her bathroom filling her potty chart with stickers. She had gotten her step stool to reach the chart and stickers and showed me proudly how the whole chart was now full. It was really hard not to laugh at her for that one.
The other night we found pen marks on our sheets and wall. We have absolutely no idea when she even did that!
It would seem like it wouldn't be that hard to keep her from doing this stuff but she always manages to sneak away when I'm occupied with Connor during a nursing session or diaper change.
I've learned to be nervous anytime I don't hear her for more than a minute or two.....
Does your toddler get into things they shouldn't when your occupied? Please share your stories, I know I'm not the only one this happens to!
