Beware the quiet toddler

I've come to realize that a quiet toddler can only mean one thing: Danger ahead!


And when you have a baby in the house, it becomes increasingly more difficult to stop the trouble-making toddler before things get messy.


For example, the other night I was putting Babycakes to sleep. I came downstairs to find every single one of my CDs and DVDs, out of the containers, in a giant pile in the middle of the living room floor.


So maybe I should have known better. But today while I was feeding the Baby his lunch, I let the toddler watch a video in the other room. He even picked out an educational video about bugs - so I was feeling rather proud.


From the kitchen I could see that he never even got up from our dark red wingback chair - one of my husband's favorites.


(Now, I should qualify that there was a tiny, tiny hole in the fabric on the arm of the chair - like a white pinprick, hardly noticeable.)
