...and had been confiscated by a 15-month-old, where would I be? I've searched all the favorite spots for randomly hiding things, like between our mattresses (our insurance cards somehow got shoved in there - that one took months to find); the garbage (too many items to name, plus all the items we can't name because we never knew that's where they ended up. We're suspicious for all the missing cars though); inside the casing on the back of the elliptical machine (favorite car, that one also took months to find); in a random bin in a random cupboard full of hair supplies that I only look in once every few weeks (my doorstop - pretty hard to get the SUV stroller out the door without it...or at least without shredding all the paint on the walls and the door on the way out. Too bad I'd already bought a new one when I finally found that); the black hole behind the twins cribs (I swear we look there all the time and find random toys we've been looking for forever, Lightning McQueen cars, and of course old bottles, although this week a bottle finally turned up that we'd been looking for for a month. EW.); under the couch (almost a weekly sweep that turns up a gold mine of paraphernalia); kitchen cupboards, fridge drawers, random slots in various toys.... ugh. I'm out of ideas. I've even combed the house on all fours trying to think with the mentality of a 1 year-old. Anyone else got any suggestions from brilliant places your kids have hidden things?
I think that's what I get for not paying attention to my kids. And a chipped tooth. Yesterday. Ashton. Well, I think it was yesterday, that's how poorly I can keep track of my children, apparently. I think it must have been at the park while I was busy calming another of my crying children (for some other accident I also didn't see). So a friend was trying to console him, and was like, um, he doesn't really seem to want me. Yeah, no wonder he was mad. Although honestly, I need to get out my camera and look at pictures over the past few days to get a clue about whether it even was from yesterday. What if it's been there for days? Then I'm even lamer. But frankly I'm kind of mad. Now I have to look at that chip for the next 5 years or however long it takes for that tooth to be replaced! It's not that bad, but see? That's what I get.
