We had one Saturday afternoon with not much to do. The kids wanted us to play hide and seek. Instead of pacifying them with TV or drawing pictures or other usual methods, we just did it. AND…it was very fun.
What was surprising was how much fun my husband and I had while we were playing. It was honestly very thrilling and exhilarating standing in a dark place very quietly…Waiting to be discovered, not knowing when we’d be found.
My husband was very sneaky and would scream out BOO when I found where he was. It scared me so much I almost peed my pants several times. We all just died laughing about it after.
Who knew you could still feel such excitement and emotion as an adult, playing hide and seek.
It was fun to see all the clever places my oldest daughter found to hide. My younger daughter tended to hide in the same place over and over, but she sure was cute while she was doing it.
So…if you’re ever feeling down or blue and need a quick pick me up, I’d suggesting a little Pleasant Event like this one. This one was fast, cheap and guaranteed to change your mood in less than 5 minutes. Plus, you’re kids will tell their friends you’re the coolest mom ever.
I’m counting this as number 81 on the Pleasant Events list.
