When you have small children there’s nothing like the sudden sound of silence. It fills me with dread. And then you call them and one tip toes in with the guiltiest grin, urg.
There’s a nice little library down the street from our new house and we took Sam over to get his first library card. He was very excited and picked out yet another truck book, but this one has flaps to lift and is ever so exciting. He “reads” it by himself and looks under all the flaps and tells me what he sees. I was doing dishes and didn’t notice that he’d left the book on the couch and Evan got quiet. Then I hear a distinctive rip. Great precedent we set by ripping a flap off the first library book he ever borrowed :( The librarian sighed and said those flap books never last long; I guess I’m not the only neglectful flap endangering parent.
