Have you ever had one of those moments
when your mom instincts
tell you that your kids are up to something?
When you are upstairs
or in another room
and suddenly you realize that it's awfully quiet in the house
too quiet for a house full of 4 kids ...
So you pause in what you are doing
cocking your head to one side
so you can hear better.
And still you hear ... nothing.
That means trouble.
Honestly ... what could they be up to this time????
So you set aside whatever you're doing
and quietly walk down the stairs.
Pausing at the bottom, expecting to hear whispers or giggles
that would give away their location
and whatever mischief they are perpetrating.
I stand corrected.
Carry on kids ...
