Then this happened. Nothing like a real-life analogy to drive a point home, in my opinion. My husband was playing a few rounds of hide-and-seek with the kids before bed. They turned all the lights out and it sounded like they were having a grand time. I shut down my computer and went to join them. Oh, the squeals they made, knowing mama was going to join in on the fun. My husband’s eyes twinkled as he started to count. We took off running and of course, I had four of my six kids try to come and hide in the same room. Go! I stage whispered, We can’t all hide in the same spot—he’ll find us! Of course, they didn’t listen to me. As I looked around frantically for a hiding spot, I had to resort to hiding under the bed. And I almost made it, too. Until I tried to fit my butt under the bed. It wouldn’t budge, no matter how hard I tried to squeeze it under the frame of my daughter’s lovely antique bed. My butt was too big.
