One of the best things about having a toddler is seeing the small wonders and gifts that surround us I had forgotten about. Annikah does not take for granted new things and can make a game of endless fun out of almost anything. No light up plastic toy has amused Anni as much as the games she invents on her own. Here is her latest game; closet required. These are the apparent “rules” of the game: Anni runs and hides inside a closet, I or Jason say “where is Anni?” and pretend to look everywhere in the room for her, and then out pops Anni only to quickly close the door again. She actually stays in there for a few minutes each time. It is dark in there but the thrill of being hunted for and then emerging to utter shock and surprise seems to be more than worth it.

    so funny – luca still loves this game and gets mad if we don’t spend enough time looking for him in other places. gia has just begun enjoying “hiding.” other fave classics that she may like in the future: stealing her nose with your hand then putting it back and up high, down low, too slow. btw – so glad you guys are feeling better!
