Learning Curve

"OK, Will, now you hide and I'll try to find you."

"OK, Daddy!"

Gallop gallop gallop down the hall. I start counting.

"...9...10! Ready or not, here I come!"

Gallop gallop gallop back up the hall. He grabs me around the legs.

"You found me, Daddy!"

"Will, you're supposed to hide!"

Shannon decides to help teach Will how to play hide-and-seek as a hider. They hide together in the bathroom.

"Ready or not, here I come!"

From down the hall I hear, "Mommy, Daddy's looking for me. Mommy, we're in the bathroom." Shannon can barely contain herself from laughing. Stealth is not yet this child's forte.

We try again. They hide. "Ready or not, here I come!" I start wandering. "Where are you, Will!"

Loudly: "In the bathtub, Daddy!" Shannon collapses. Will beams.

We all want to be found. Some play harder to get than others.
