“Mommy! I hiding!”
Yesterday was tough. I was up early for my run, then in to the office for a couple hours, then we had to go say an emotional goodbye to my friend. At the church, I saw my first flowers of the year blooming. I would have been a lot more excited to see them under different circumstances, but it was kind of poetic in a way.
No matter how bad life seems, I can always count on two things: running to get my head on straighter, and an afternoon spent with this kid to bring a smile to my face. We hung out at my mom’s for the remainder of the day and despite the circumstances we had a lot of fun. Baseball was on TV and it was window-open weather. We taught her how to play hide & seek. Up until yesterday, tea party was my favorite thing to play with her, but now I think it’s going to be hide & seek. I could have done this for hours.
As you can see, she is a natural at hiding.
Is running like therapy for you too? What was your favorite game to play as a kid? How about with your own kids? Are you as excited about baseball as I am?
