A reward for a laundry day well done

As I was folding the last load of the day, Josh and Lydia came to keep me company. I heard Josh's conspiratorial voice behind me say, "Mom, where did we go?" I turned toward the dirty-laundry-sorter thing to see this:

(And by the way, that big old rip is the result of Lydia's new love affair with climbing in the sorter on top of the dirty laundry all the time. It currently stretches all the way from one end to the other. Anyway, on with the cuteness...)

I was so charmed by seeing their cute squirming little backs and their muffled giggling that I indulged in the fake search. ("Hmm, are you behind the door? Nooo. Are you on the ceiling? Nooo...") They finally revealed their hiding spot with a triumphant, "Here we are!"

I indulged them by not being able to find them for a few more times, and they indulged me by recreating it for the camera.

I think 2 of my co-workers read your blog as well. today in the nursery, they were hiding in this big cardboard box, with heads tucked down, saying basically, "Where did we go??!". I had to do a double take, because at first I thought t must be Lydia and Josh.
