What sneaky kids do to find their Christmas gifts early...
Unwrap gifts early and re-wrap.
Cut tape off package, unwrap, re-wrap, and reapply new piece on top.
Search attic with friend.
Watch friend fall through ceiling.
Witness friends legs hanging through the ceiling into the laundry room.
Pretend nothing happened.
Tell yourself nobody will look up.
Play coy when confronted by angry parents.
Look for empty shopping bags.
Shake and measure wrapped gifts.
This is why I try to find the best hiding spots for our children's Christmas gifts.
Not because this sneaky child is Max, but because it was me.
I do fear that the apple might not fall far from the tree.
This year it seems Max is much more aware and curious.
He's asking questions.
He's offering to carry in shopping bags.
He's putting my things away for me.
The other day he told me to take my time while showering.
And so it has begun.
