Last night I mentioned to the girls that daddy would be home soon. Soon to me = 20 minutes. Soon to the girls = 20 seconds. They both started squealing and running around the house yelling hide, quick! Where should we hide? I quickly evaluated the situation. I'd just put dinner in the oven. Buddy was sleeping. If I could just convince the girlies to stay in a hiding spot, I might just be able to lie down and take a quick nap. Wouldn't that be great? But how to keep them excited to stay hidden for 20 minutes without them asking if he was here yet every 2 seconds, waking me up? Here you go:
Ta dah! I am a tricksy little hobbit, or I would be if I were a little hobbit. My brilliant scheme could only have worked better if getting them set up hadn't taken half of my power nap time.
