Today, I played hide & seek with Annie.
I wonder if, back in the day when I was toiling over a Bachelor’s Degree, planning on a Master’s Degree, and contemplating going on for a Ph.D., if you had told me that one day, when I grew up, one of my favorite things to do would be to play hide & seek with a 3-year-old, if I would have laughed out loud?
I was pretty sure of my plans back then.
Two of those degrees I thought for sure I needed, never materialized.
And I don’t care.
Somewhere along the line my priorities changed.
It is pretty ridiculous how much fun I have playing hide and seek.
Its also ridiculous that she doesn’t quite grasp the concept and every time she hides, she tells me in advance where she’s going to go.
“I goin’ to go hide in da curtains, momma, and you come find me….”
But even if she didn’t let on to her whereabouts, I think I might be able to locate her.
