Silence is not golden

Posted 02-12-2013 at 11:53 AM by whitneywalters

It was a pretty peaceful afternoon here in the Walter’s house. Alex and Destiny were working on their home work, Amelia was playing with her toys and Kairi was coloring at the kitchen table. Alex started a new section in his math book so I was helping him with it. It had been about ten minutes since Kairi came over to see what was going on and since I could not hear her, I went to check on her. Let’s just say I was a bit surprised at what I found.

Kairi had drug her small chair over to the counter, gotten the left over cake, brought it to the table and helped herself. She was covered in frosting and the small amount of cake that was left was destroyed. My camera was up on the counter so I was able to snap a picture to share with you all before sticking her in the bath. I had to run clean water after the inital washing because she turned the water red from all the frosting that was on her hands.

This is not the first time Kairi has done something like this either, sadly it is not the second, third or even fourth. Kairi loves making messes and she will do it ever chance she can. She has dumped almost an entire sack of flour on the floor while I was doing school with the other kids in another room and then played in it, spilled half a bag of rice and played in it while I was putting laundry in the washer, dumped salt all over the nursery carpet while I was making lunch and done many other things. Her favorite things to do outside are the sandbox and anything wet, the messier the better.

I know you all have heard the saying, silence is golden unless you are a toddler, then it is suspicious, well Kairi makes that saying very true.

    She is one is curious and active toddler! Guess she is a *sensory* type of kid. Lots of hands-on activities would make her day!
