Ains count!

Hide and go seek is a favorite game around here these days. Hours on end, which is surprising given the age of the younger player. The other day I hid behind the laundry pile and Hannah couldn't find me. I need to work on that pile, maybe. Anyway, the pattern is predictable - a parent counts and seeks, then Hannah counts and seeks, and then Ainsley declares that it's her turn.

"Ains count!" and she throws herself up against a wall with her arms over her eyes. "One, two, three, four, eight, sixteen, COME!!!!" And then she runs to find. If she finds you in the first thirty seconds, you're good. If not, you'd better come out because it's likely she's found an intriguing toy, or decided to cook in her kitchen, or has inexplicably decided that hiding is more fun.

When Drue was small she was actually heard to say "one, two, four, six, chicken..."
