The Day I Ran Away From Home

I was about 5 or 6 years old on the day I ran away from home, but I actually didn't even run away or leave home for that matter. I remember hiding under my bed and thinking it would be funny if my parents couldn't find me. So there I stayed. I heard them calling for me, opening the doors outside and yelling my name out into the neighborhood. And there I was under my bed giggling when my parents were freaking out. This seemed to go on forever in my little kid mind so I came out and yelled "Surprise!" and laughed a whole bunch. I don't remember getting in trouble for this, but this was probably because my parents were so relieved!
Did you ever run away from home?
Have you ever played a prank on your parents?

Awwww you are SO adorable in that photo! How cute. :) And what a cute story. I'm sure your parents were mad, but yes definitely WAY too relieved to show it. Lol. And how could anyone be mad at that sweet little face?! xo

Oh my goodness! First of all you are TOO cute in that photo! I never ran away but I'm pretty for sure I threatened to once or twice.

Is this a little you? SO CUTE. Who could get mad at that face? Thanks so much for the vote. I don't recall actually doing any running away from the home, but I certainly packed many a bag whilst storming about my room making loud declarations about my imminent departure. Don't think I ever got around to departing...
