sometimes, the only private time i get is when i'm playing hide-and-seek.
but that's okay. i know that these days of hide-and-seek, snuggles in the morning, playing candyland, and singing old macdonald with my three year old will be over and gone before i know it. the days when my oldest tells me who is the pretty girl in class will not always last. now i can comfort my daughter with a hug, kiss and a tickle, but i won't be able to do that always. i don't always treasure these days like i should. sometimes i'm so busy thinking about what i want to do. about how i want to spend my time. about things i need to do... that i forget that these precious days are fleeting.
though, some days i'm tempted to find really hard hiding places just to have that extra few minutes.
