Hide and Go Seek

Mama will never find me here. She never comes into the exercise room.

If you want to feel like a winner, play hide and go seek with Chick. This is how it works:

First, Mommy hides while Ana counts to 10 like this - 1, 2, 3, I'm coming now!

Then, Ana wanders around, with no powers of observation, missing the obvious bulge behind curtains or under blankets until I am forced to strategically cough so that I don't asphyxiate.

Now, the true fun begins. It is Ana's turn.

Mommy. Come hide me.

I can't, Baby. If I hide you, then I'll know where you are.

That's okay. You can do that.

Sweetie, that's not how it works. You have to hide yourself and then Mommy will find you. That is why it is fun - because I don't know where you are.

But no, I need you to help me. Please? I'm afraid to do it by myself.

Sigh. Okay, I will help you hide from me.

Then, we hold hands and I take her to some hiding spot, whereupon I pull some sort of cover over her. Next, I am forced to wander around the house saying things like, I wonder where Ana is? Could she be in this room? Wherever could she have gone? I just have no idea.

Ana thinks it is the best game EVER, hysterically funny even. Me, I think it lacks a little challenge, but what do I know?
