Anna has started wanting to play hide and seek from time to time. It
came out of the blue (for me, at least), so I'm not sure if Beth started
playing it with her, or if she learned it in preschool. Her version of
the game is pretty easy. Last night, she asked to play and wanted me to
count first. So I closed my eyes, counted to ten, and said, "Ready or
not, here I come!" When I opened my eyes, I turned my head and saw her
laying on the couch with her eyes closed.
I took a turn hiding, and on her next turn hiding, she "hid" on the
couch again, only this time mommy sat in front of her to at least
partially hide her. When I came in the room and said, "Hmm, where is
Anna," Anna yelled out, "I'm right here behind mommy!" Then she said it
was my turn to hide, and she also told me to hide on the blue couch. I
guess not knowing where I'm hiding made the game too hard for her.
