Uh Oh Something Is Amiss

There is yelling and crying
Good.
There is screaming. 
A loud wail. Great!

Uh-oh.
Dead quiet.
I creep up, quietly
To spy on them

Knowing something is
Up. They are four, six, 
And eight, 

Only quiet when they
Are up to their most
Dastardly deeds.

And the fatherly radar too if you are lucky enough to have them for the day, right Charles?

One time I heard screaming and yelling above my head. I was talking to my daughter at the time. She stopped in the middle of the sentence and yelled "Don't make me come up there!" There was dead silence. We high-fived each other. I was so proud; she is the kind of mother I planned to raise. Neither of us took a step toward them.

I'm mystified. You leave me with many questions.

I am laughing now. All Mom's have a radar that when the NOISE and LAUGHING and FIGHTING stops, and silence kicks in, you had better rush in there now. They are plotting something which is why they are so quiet, as they do not want MOM to hear them.

I doubt you miss much, actually, Mahtab.
