Be Sure To Look In All The Good Hiding Places — Twice

Conversations With My Daughter — Jilly Nines

“Daddy?”

“Yes, Jilly?”

“I know you’ve said there’s nothing hiding under there, but would you look under my bed tonight to be sure?”

“When we get home, yes, honey.”

“Remember to look everywhere under the bed.”

“Okay.”

“Twice.”

“Okay.”

“In all the good hiding places.”

“I will.”

“And can I watch you look?”

“Of course honey, but why are you so worried?”

“When we were playing hide and seek yesterday and you couldn’t find me, I was hiding under the bed.”

“Oh.”

“And then you looked right at me and still couldn’t see me.”
