Highlights from hide-and-seek tonight:
Rose hid in the toy cupboard. She gave herself away when she mistakenly thought she was the last to be found.
Mabel hid in the kitchen cupboard. She gave herself away by accidentally knocking her elbow against the door. She did say her “silver spoon” strategy worked: you hold a spoon against your face to keep you cool.
Henry hid in a laundry basket and Mabel covered him with clothes. Isaac didn’t find him until he’d walked past twice and we sent him back into the room.
And I owned the game: I put a stepladder in the back of my closet, squatted on its top step, and hung a long bathrobe in front of me. After Isaac checked the closet once I had to whistle to get him to check again, and he still didn’t see me. He found me on the third try, when I couldn’t hold my giggles back anymore.
