The little hider....

Do your kids ever hide from you? Do you have the feeling they are looking right at you thinking you must be dumber than a rock? We had another hiding incident with Wyatt today. He doesn't do it too often but when he does, he's gooooood at it. What do you do when they finally reappear? Spank them ? Praise them for revealing themselves? I have yet to nip this in the bud. I lean on the "act casual and let them know not to ever do that again". How about you? Ever have your kids hide on you? Or your cat? Nothing like feeling you've been taken down a notch that day, huh?


  1. My oldest is named Wyatt! He's not my hider, though. That would be my middle child, Scott. I'm not a spanker, but I do let him know how much he scared me and why - in my best serious mommy voice, of course. :-)

    Happy Easter!

  2. I see, so I'm not alone in this "hiding" phase...Happy Easter!

  3. I usually act really scared and tell them they are really good at hiding and that I was worried when I couldn't find them and laugh about it as my heart pounds away. They usually laugh and are proud of how good of a hider they are. (Angie)
