Hide and seek with Max

I have this fun game that I've played with all my kids when they were little. If I knew that they were coming into a room, I would hide around the corner and as they walk by I jump out and growl at them. Sure, at first they had this look of sheer terror on their faces, but it soon melted into uncontrolled giggles then they would be their turn to hide and "scare" me.


Today, I got into the hide and growl game with Max. He loves this game, and will play it forever. When it was my time to hide, I hid in the kitchen closet.





I heard Max walk in the kitchen and around the island.





He looked in the bathroom by the kitchen.





He looked in the hall closet.





He looked behind the couches.





He looked in the laundry room.





I'm still in the closet waiting. I can't believe that he hasn't looked in the closet, I mean, it was the only place he hadn't looked, and it was SO obvious!





He went and looked in the living room, then I heard him go downstairs.





I continued to wait.





When he came upstairs he went down the hallway and looked in the bedrooms and bathroom again. I heard him opening all the closet doors. He even started calling "Mom! Where are you?"





Then it dawned on me.





You know those white childproof doorknob covers that you put on your doorknobs so that little kids (and some adults) can't open them?





There was one on the door to the closet that I was hiding in.

When I had to leave my son at daycare, the daycare lady used to have to let me out of the house because I couldn't master the childproof door knob.

But, but, did you jump out and scare him? Poor Max, I can imagine his frustration!

Hmmm...I'm thinking this closet may have some potential when you are looking for a little "me-time."

That is so great! And I have a hard time with those knobs but I use the excuse that I don't have children yet and very little experience with them.

That story is hilarious! I wouldn't know anything about those childproof door knob covers because they weren't childproof enough for our kid. We had to take them off after a few months.
