We started a new ritual every morning. Right after we do bizness outside, Lexi is asked to “stay” at the bottom of the stairs, while I run upstairs to hide somewhere.
My favorite place to hide is right at the top of the stairs behind a GLASS door in our living area. I call to her “Come find mama” and she races up the stairs, and down the hallway away from me. It’s a riot! She can’t see me through the door, EVER! It’s really a wonderful hiding spot, because I can see her and her reactions perfectly.
Eventually, she will see me behind the door, when she’s searching through the living area. It’s so cute. Both Mindy and Lexi love “Hide and Seek” – we play with food kibble too!
