It's the golden rule of parenting: If your home is unusually quiet, your kids are probably up to no good!

Amy Hermann from Australia found that out the hard way, when she realized her house was a little too quiet... but it was a little too late. When she went to check on her kids, she found her 3-year-old daughter coloring stripes onto her 18-month-old daughter, turning her into a "zebra!" The worst part? She was using a permanent marker!

The video went viral after Amy posted it to her Facebook page, and although she was frustrated that her daughter decided on permanent marker, she told Buzzfeed, "I’m happy to see her creativity showing through, no matter the canvas.”

Check out the adorable video:
