Even though I am 44, and my son is nearly 17, I played hide and seek with him yesterday. He was due home at 1 for lunch. I hid then sent him a text message when I heard him enter the house. It took him 12 minutes to find me, which I am pretty happy with because we live in a modest size house.
It was the most exhilarating (and due to the fact that I has huddled-up and sitting on my legs, painful) 12 minutes I’ve spent in a long time.
There’s something in doing something childish, just occasionally. So, regardless how old you and your children are, Brilliant Idea #264 is to hide from them this Saturday. Brilliant.
