Hiding spots

We were just finishing up lunch this afternoon, when I decided it was time for a surprise. "Boys, I said, as soon as you do your chores, Mommy has a surprise for you!"

"YAYYYY!" was their response.

"But what is it?" asks my 4 year old, Isaiah.

Deciding to give him a hint, I say, "It has something to do with your train table"

"Oh," he responds, "is it the new train tracks you have hidden underneath your bed?"

Wow. I guess I better come up with a better hiding spot for new toys. Smart kids.

Nonetheless, today, I'm thankful for children that are smarter than their mother... and children that can make me laugh.

LOL! I love smart kids and sweet ones who don't yell out the secret toys when they find them. I wonder how long he knew.

I remember finding toys as a kid and once told that I found it. I was in some hot water that day. I never told when I found a toy again! (I did still look for them though.) LOL!

I love this! I have twin boys who are 7, and they are hard to surprise also... how they figure things out sometimes just amazes me. Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier today, have a blessed day and enjoy your boys!

Haha, too funny! I've had to find a few new hiding spots over the years, too!! Man, I HATE having to come up with a creative story for why there's a toy or book or new movie stashed somewhere in the house!

One of our three boys was like that, too...and he could NOT keep a secret!

These are precious times...enoy every I know you do!
