I was deliberate in executing a "little victory" today.
During school, we took a break to played Hide and Seek! Momma would hide and all the children would look... screaming hilariously when I roared as found! Then all the children would hide (in pairs, until Olivia thought she'd rather count and seek with me) while Carolina and I searched around every crack, crevice, and corner.
It was a hoot! That Zack is especially good at thinking up original hiding spots, and Susanna faithfully relied on the same one - under the bed - every time;-) (Hey, if somethings working for ya, stick with it!)
It was a good thing for me to play WITH the children. It was wonderful to laugh together! It was also a nice treat to stop in the midst of doing duties to do something fun and unexpected.
I doubt I could do it every day, but then that's what makes deliberate little victories like these so special.
Oh... you want to know where I hid? With Carolina and a pregnant belly? Hmm.. Let's see...
First the Shower:-)
Then the closset,
and finally under the bedroom desk. (It's a big enough desk) (Okay, I squeezed!)
Amazingly Carolina was a very cooperative participant! We had a good time:-)
