Scary Silence?

It was quiet... too quiet.

Dangerously quiet.

Looking up from my project, I cocked my head, listening intently.

Not a sound.

No pattering of little feet, no shuffling of a diaper, no rustling of papers, or indication that a movie was playing. There was just... pure silence.

It was almost, scary.

Determined not to panic, I went to go investigate.

I came across the first one, not too terribly surprised. He's been sick so, this was good!


The second one was also easy to find. All I had to do was follow the bread bags. He seems to have a slight obsession with bread, and falling asleep on the kitchen floor.

In case you couldn't tell.

He really is in there, I promise.

Two down, one to go.

I quickly, and somewhat frantically began searching all the rooms, inwardly preparing myself for whatever horrible disaster was laying in wait for me.

Because let's face it. Alayna + Silence = Disaster.

It's a proven science.

Not finding her with the initial sweep of the house, I went at it again, more thoroughly.

And what to my total, utter, and complete amazement did I find?

The little one herself, tucked away in her own bed.

I just stood there, dumbfounded!

What magic was this? Maybe Fairy Godmothers really do exsist!

Smiling now at the peace and quiet, I set off to enjoy this ever so rare moment of tranquility.

Then, at that exact moment, the one who had been sleeping on my bed walked in and announced he had an accident.

All over my DRY CLEAN ONLY comforter.


I take back what I said about Fairy Godmothers.

A new slant on having someone rain on your parade.



Felicity said...

Haha! Three sleeping angels...and a surprise...what more could you ask for? Naps are a rare thing at our house...and let me tell you, they sure are tender little mercies when they do happen!

Sorry about your comforter....

Felicity, at {Simple Elegance}

Neisha said...

hey...they put themselves down for naps...wish mine did

Stacy said...

Oh my.

Why aren't we living next door to each other. My sickies could play with your sickies and no one would care, because they're all already sick!

OK, maybe it's not a great idea, but at least we would live next to each other.

You need to write a book. You are so funny..and it makes all of us feel a lesser need to scream since we all go through the same thing;) ha!

Cluttered Brain said...

I was clapping there for a moment.
Sorry bout that.
STUPID dry clean only.

The Martos Fudge said...

Such angels, I am happy you had a little break today.

Cherie said...

That would give you a moment of pause - but then to find all of those sleeping angels...Heaven - well until the bedspread. Oh well!

Saimi said...

At first I'm thinking, "Yay silence is golden!!" Then I see it comes with a price...sorry about your bed!

Jocelyn Christensen said...

Rain on your parade...ew, Sue!

a sleeping child is a happy chi... umm, a happy Mom...

and the words "dry clean only" should be reserved for houses without children... I once had a dry clean only shower curtain... seriously - what possessed anyone to thing THAT was a bright idea?

On a completely different note - you've inspired me... I patched a pair of holey jeans today - and for the record: 1-the sewing machine didn't help - stupid legs are too narrow to manuever. 2-I goofed up a few times before realizing the EASY way to add the flannel to the back... 3-I'm pretty sure it took me longer than 45 minutes. I'm tossing in an "inspiration" link tomorrow :)

Stef said...

Oh, man!!! Just when you notice that heaven is close, it gets yanked right out from under us!
But how did they all fall asleep in such different places. That is really a freak thing...or at least it would be in my house.

Sarbear said...

Maybe they were playing "hide and sleep" Ha. I wish my kids played that.
