Hide-n-Sleep Seek

"1 . . . 2 . . . 3"

I could hear Lauren counting downstairs as I searched for another perfect hiding spot for our thousandth round of hide-n-seek.

"4 . . . 5 . . . 6"

Hmm, I wonder if I can fit under Lauren's bed; it's pretty high.

"7 . . . 8 . . . 9"

Yes! It's actually pretty spacious under here. I can stretch out with plenty of room.

"10 . . . 11 . . . 12"

I don't hear the boys' footsteps anymore; they must have found hiding spots.

"13 . . . 14 . . . 15"

Okay, I have at least 15 more seconds before she comes upstairs. Since I have to lie here and be still and quiet anyway, I may as well close my eyes, right?

"16 . . ."

Do I really need to tell you how this story ends?

Suffice it to say when I awakened from dozing off under Lauren's bed, there was a lot of fighting going on about whether Lauren had told Ethan where Joshua was hiding, but they were still all completely in the dark as to where mommy was. In my defense, I only debated with myself for a moment (or two) as to whether I really must come out from under the bed and intervene.

It's a good thing there was no snooze button under there.

If you ever come to my house and can't find me, take a peek under Lauren's bed. It just may be my new favorite place in the house.

Hah! That's classic!

(And even crazier because I just finished up a post about our own hide and seek game, posting tomorrow morning. But yours is definitely funnier -- I got all mushy and stuff in mine :))

That's hilarious! Man, I'd be playing hide and seek all the time and praying that they never found that particular spot.
