20 'Malingat Ka Lang' Photos: You Know It's Bad When the Kids Are Too QuietToddlers strike again!by Kitty Elicay .
We can’t leave our children alone for five minutes, and it’s not always because we’re clingy. Kids can cause total chaos when mom or dad become distracted even for just a few minutes, as the photos below will show you.
While we’re all about letting kids be kids — at toddler stage, they’re all about exploring their environment and engaging their senses so a mess is inevitable — we totally feel for parents who need to clean their children’s “Oops, I made a mess moment.”
20 times silence means you need to check up on your kids asap
Whether they used markers, lotion, powder, rolls of tissue, makeup or milk (the last two really hurt!), these photos prove kids can play with anything. Moms and dads, you are not alone — “malingat ka lang, magulo na” is real!
Kids love playing with powder
As expected, a quiet toddler should make parents very, very suspicious. In the case of mom Dhaynelle Cabalang, she was doing chores outside the house when she noticed her son Dranreb had become too quiet. When she peeked, her 4-year-old son was already covered in powder. “Kaya po tahimik siya kasi alam niya po na may nagawa siyang kasalanan [laughing emoji],” she tells SmartParenting.com.ph via Facebook Messenger.ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOWCONTINUE READING BELOWRecommended Videos
