After a few minutes of silence with my son in the house, you KNOW something is up. He is a natural chatterbox and isn't one who likes to be alone, unless, of course, he knows he will get in trouble for 'decorating' the walls, making recipes or cutting puppy's hair[= Typically, I don't even get the chance to worry because their is never an extended period of silence, but if I don't hear chatter for five minutes, I usually have to bolt upstairs looking for him. He is eight now, so these episodes are fewer and farer in between, but they still occur on occasion. However, let me tell you, when he was 3 or 4, nearly every day their were new discoveries as to my sons activities. [=
BQ2- I fell asleep for about an hour (whoops) a couple of months ago and when I woke up (not to tears or being shaken by my son), I thought for sure he had made his way into some antics during the whole HOUR I wasn't watching him. When I ran upstairs my heart melted, he was quietly working on making his mother's day card, and NEATLY. I was nothing short of amazed that not only did he remember in the first place, but he also executed a very lovely end project. [=
BQ3- A few years ago, I was shocked to discover after only about ten minutes my son had turned the oven AND stove on, created a mixture of ingredients (like pickles, gummys, milk, mayo, leftover ground beef...) and attempted to create a casserole, all the while, he nearly set our house on fire. Thank god I noticed the silence when I did!
