Hide and Seek

We played hide and seek for the first time last night. I don't think I stopped laughing until we finally got her into her pj's.

Top 5 Reasons Why Maddie Will Never Be World Hide & Seek Champion:
  1. She always hides in the same spot. And that spot is the front hall closet. Just so's you know.
  2. She likes to peek out of her hiding spot (the closet) while you "look" for her.
  3. If you're like me, and like to narrate your life (i.e. "Is Maddie under the table?" "Is Maddie behind the couch"), then she will answer you "NOoooooooo" - from said closet.
  4. If you take too long "looking" for her, she will jump out of the closet and say "Maddie in closet Mommy!"
  5. And if she is the seeker, she will actually only look in one place for you. And that place is... drumroll, please... In The Closet. Because CLEARLY that's the best hiding place in the world, right?
And these are the nights that make up for all those nights of fury and tantrums.

Aren't kids hilarious? It does make up for all the tantrums for sure.

This summer we played hide and seek almost every day. Lucy's favourite hiding spot?

The middle of the dining room floor. Where she'd giggle uncontrollably as we stepped around her, saying, "Oh dear. WHERE is Lucy. She is SO hard to find."

Love it! We do hide and seek all the time too...Alex just copies Austin who has finally graduated to hiding in the same place all the time to saying 'mommy you go count and I'll go hide in my room!'
