Here’s how three- and four-year-olds are playing hide and seek these days. One person counts to twenty while the other two (usually the three- and four-year-olds) hide. It doesn’t matter what order the numbers are in, as long as you start with one and finish with twenty. We think people who put the numbers in the same order every time are kind of conventional and boring. That’s just how we roll.

If you’re the one hiding, don’t hide where nobody can find you, or you might get in trouble. If you’re the one seeking, if you look long enough and say the right magic words (“Where’s Kylie?” “Where’s Aiden?”), you’ll hear giggling and won’t have to work very hard from there. There are no winners and losers, except those people who don’t play. And when you’re in the right company, everybody plays.

Busy children.

I spent an entertaining and therapeutic few hours with John and Suzanne and Aiden and Kylie today. For the most part the two little ones entertained themselves and each other, and in doing so entertained the rest of us. They showed wondrous imagination, using a few toys and available space to create an entire universe. When they invited the adults in, of course we were happy to go. It’s like visiting a different time zone, where you’re going on six instead of pushing sixty.
