Ayden and Sammie's "Hiding Place"
Ayden and his bf Sammie turned my family room into a secret hiding place complete with pets and snacks. They had such a good time playing together yesterday. Ahhhh, to be a child again with a wonderful imagination....It remind me of one of my favorite childhood poems;
I'm hiding, I'm hiding and no one knows where; for all they can see is my toes and my hair and I just heard my father say to my mother -"But, darling, he must be somewhere or other; Have you looked in the inkwell?" and Mother said, "Where?" "In the INKWEL?"said Father. but I was not there. Then "Wait!" cried my mother — "I think that I see him under the carpet." but it was not me. "Inside the mirror's a pretty good place." said Father and looked, but saw only his face. "We've hunted," sighed Mother, "As hard as we could and I am so afraid that we've lost him for good." Then I laughed out aloud and I wiggled my toes and Father said —"Look, dear, I wonder if those toes could be his? There are ten of them, see?" and they WERE so surprised to find out it was me!
