I was tempted to write an entry for "Day 3" but I started to feel like I was making tick marks on a prison wall. Not that I've ever been in prison or anything, but you know, like you see in the movies, ok, so maybe that was in the really old movies... Ahem... anyway, back to today's hide and Seek.
This afternoon I heard the garage door open. I assumed one of the kids went to play in the cul de sac in front of our house. So about a minute later, I got up and checked the front window, but I couldn't see anyone. So I went through the house. I found my older son, but I couldn't find my 4 year old. I asked my older son where his brother was. "I don't know" was the reply.
Now I started to get worried. I had gone through the house and couldn't find him. I had looked outside and he wasn't there. So I went in the front and started calling his name. Still no response. Finally my older son started to help me look. It had only been about 4 minutes but it feels more like 4 hours! Where could he have gone so fast?!?!
As I start to panic and I'm almost ready to call 911, I run through the garage calling his name and I hear a feint, "I'm here." But I still couldn't see him. Where was the voice coming from?! So I asked, "where are you?"
His reply, "I'm in the car."
I open the door and there he is in the front passenger seat.
"What were you doing in there?"
"I wanted to take a nap in there."
Of course, as if I'm the crazy one for not knowing something as obvious as that. Why didn't I think to look in the car first?!
