Hide and Seek

Life with our 3 year old is never boring. Her favorite activity is to hide things. She likes to fill bags, backpacks, and boxes with various items from around the house. This time, the object in question was one of Soccer Girl's basketball shoes. Unfortunately, Soccer Girl has a basketball game this afternoon, so an all-out hunt to find the missing shoe ensued. One lonely basketball shoe just wasn't going to do.

Over an hour was spent taking everything out of every box in the room that the two of them share. We also cleaned everything out from under both of the beds in there. (Did I mention that both of them like to stash stuff under their beds when they're supposed to clean their room?) Needless to say, there was a lot of stuff piled in the middle of the bedroom, but no basketball shoe.

While Sassy Pants and I (along with The Boy who is always so very helpful) continued to search that bedroom, Soccer Girl and Little Red went into the other girls' room to hunt. First up was to locate any and all backpacks and bags that were in the closet in that room. Finally, a shout of joy came from Soccer Girl as she found her shoe - in a bag stashed in that closet. At last the two shoes were reunited!

Will Sassy Pants continue to hide things? Probably. She is definitely a work in progress, but aren't we all? I'm just thankful that Soccer Girl won't have to play basketball wearing only one shoe.
Sweet Shot Day
