My husband and I are going to hell. We hid from the baby tonight. Yes, hid. As in, behind a blanket, holding perfectly still and trying not to laugh.

The boys were playing together with the magnets on the fridge and DH and I were watching TV on the couch. It was the much anticipate Rock of Love reunion and I was glued to the screen. Every now and then I'd hear Sawyer say, "Don't, Beckett. Beckett, stoooop it!" But no screaming or sounds of body parts being impaled with plastic alphabet magnets, so they were fine.

DH got up to peek over the bar at them, and he got too close because Beckett saw him. And when Beckett sees you, that's it. He's coming for you. The kid is like a bloodhound, I'm telling you. DH flew back onto the couch and whispered, "HIDE!!!" as he jerked a blanket over us. We huddled silently under the blanket for a few seconds until I peered out to make sure the coast was clear.

We were giggling and trying to be quiet, and then the shadow of his bald head appeared in the door way and we raised the blanket up to form a wall. I heard him shuffle onto the carpet, babble a bit, and then be still. We sat like that for a good five minutes, until he turned around and crawled back into the kitchen to resume tormenting his brother.

Yes, we are evil. Don't worry, the kids both definitely inherited that trait so there will be paybacks.

Good thing they're cute.

I still maintain you were looking over the bar when they came running after us but it was my idea to hide. You learn that you can hide under a blanket on the couch when your kid wants to play at 6:30am on Saturday when you got to bed at 2am the night before. If they see you then they want to steal that last 15 minutes of sleep you'll be getting for the day.

I'd totally do the same thing. My kids trashed my house while the Rock of Love reunion was on - I was too glued to the TV to care.

That strategy had not occurred to me yet. We'll be trying it at some point. Thanks! LOL

BTW -- you were teaching object permanance, not hiding!
