Best Game Ever

Maggie has been really into playing hide-and-seek recently. Most of the time it consists of her running into another room and sitting on the couch. Rarely does she hide even 50% of her body from plain view.

Yesterday we were playing, and I was counting upstairs. She ran downstairs to hide. I like to build the excitement for her, so as I came down the stairs I exclaimed loudly, “I’m going to find you!” As I neared the bottom of the stairs, I heard the sounds of toys banging together. Turning the corner, there was Maggie playing in her kitchen. I yelled, “I found you!”

She didn’t even look up. She had forgotten we were playing and was on to better things. Most people would be a little insulted by her actions, but I’m just hoping she does this again when it’s my turn to hide…with a cold beer a bag of Flaming Hot Cheetos.
