My son is now to the age where you can start playing hide-and-seek really well with him.  He knows how to count and keep his eyes covered while you hide.  His hiding skills leave something to be desired.  He thinks he can hide behind the couch and as soon as I walk by he has to show himself.

A few nights ago I was having a hard time coaxing him upstairs to go to bed, and so I yelled down.  "I'm hiding you have to come find me!"  I quickly looked around, and decided the closet was a good place to hide.  I left the doors only 2/3 of the way shut so he could see me if he really got close.  Well, he comes upstairs, giggling, and saying "Momma where are youuuuu?" He just looks around the room real quick and leaves.  I'm sitting there trying to stifle my giggles thinking it would give me away, and yet none of the sounds seemed to tip him off.  He ran back downstairs, (because in toddler logic I could have easily gone back downstairs apparently.)  So I ran to the closet at the top of the stairs and just hid with the door mostly open.  He comes back upstairs crawling and doing his best T-rex impression and I just couldn't hold the laughs in. I'm standing in the closet laughing my butt off no more than 2 feet away from him and he looked all around him BUT the closet.  It was so cute!  It reminded me how innocent he is even though he seems to be growing up so quickly.

So if you want to feel like a pro at with a toddler. ;)
