Hide and Seek

Today is the day that families around the world follow the age-old tradition of post-family hide and seek.It's the day after Christmas and all of the well-meaning relatives have left. Today is the day that we find all of our stuff. All of the stuff the relatives borrowed, cleaned-up and moved only to be put back in mystery locations.

Our family just loves Hide and Seek Day! The kids look forward to this day all year. They think of today as a giant family game.

Who can find mummy's blow dryer? Under mummy's bras in the linen closet. (huh?)

Soap Nuts? In the trash can. (huh?)

Who can find the potato peeler? In with the cereal bowls. (huh?)

Who can find the bath towels? Downstairs in a showerless bathroom. (huh?)

How about the clementines? In the garage, of course. (huh?)

Maybe these new and different locations make sense to my extended family. Maybe they are simply insane. Really, it could go either way.

Enjoy your family's hide and seek game after the relatives go back to their own fruit-filled garages and combination bra and blow dryer shelves.
