I bought part of Princess's birthday present today and had it hiding in the back of the van, but it was still fairly visible so I needed to get it out. I didn't want to go to the hassle of opening the garage and risk her running downstairs to see who would dare leave without saying good-bye and giving 23 hugs and 87 kisses first. I had the great idea to send Al to climb thru the van and retrieve it.
Me: I'll keep her up here getting ready for bed, go climb into the back of the van and bring it in for me.
Al: But if I bring it up here, she might see me with it.
Me: Just put it on the couch. She's staying up here. I'll hide it in the basement after I get her to bed.
5 minutes later, as I'm reading her a story Al comes in & whispers in my ear: "I hid it under the pillows & blanket." I'm so glad he told me, otherwise, I would never have figured that out on my own.
That's 2 small blankets & 1 queen size quilt, 3 toss pillows and 2 couch cushions on the back side!
Here's a reference for the size of the present:
