This afternoon

This afternoon our five year old was playing with Legos in the living room with her 9 year old brother. John and I were sitting at the dining room table, and the other kids were elsewhere in the house.

Pretty soon the 9 year old ran off to another room. Silence reigned for a few minutes. Then the 5 year old looked around the unusually quiet living room and said, “Is it just me in here or what?”

“Yeah,” I said. “Is it too quiet for you?”

“Yes!” said my socialite daughter.

“You just wouldn’t do well as an only child, would you?” I said, laughing.

Without missing a beat she replied, “A LONELY child, that’s what I’d be!”

  1. Oh she is quick! I’m sure mom and dad were enjoying the quiet though! 🙂

    Wow, I’m impressed that with 10 kids there was quiet long enough to notice let alone comment – there are only five kids in my house and the only time its quiet that long is after bed time.

  3. Oh FUNNY!!! : ) She IS quick! I think if I were her, I’d be LOVIN’ the “quiet moment”!!! : )
