I used to LOVE to play hide and seek. Its such a strange thrill waiting to be found. I love that my kids are getting old enough to play games together now. Silas and Hattie aren't too good at including Luke who REALLY wants to be a part of what they are doing. But that'll come, I know. Besides, there is only 3 1/2 years separating Silas and Luke, with Hattie in between.
ANYWAYS...I have an absolutely terrible cold. So we stayed around the house today. And Silas and Hattie were playing hide and seek. I helped Hattie hide in the tub with the shower curtain drawn. When Silas was looking for her she made a noise. I seized the opportunity to scare the pee out of Silas. I yelled and gasped, WHAT WAS THAT? I grabbed Silas and acted scared.
Can you see where this is going?
He screamed out of terror. He looked at me. I was laughing so hard. Hattie pops out of the shower and Silas says out of pure relief, I KNEW IT WAS YOU. I KNEW YOU WERE IN THERE.
Of course he didn't. But man, that good laugh sure did make me feel better.
This summer we are going to have to teach them to play Sardines. I really loved that game.
