We don't live in a very big house. There aren't that many places for things to get lost. And yet? They do. When we moved in here we had 6 child-sized spoons. (Awesome metal ones. I'm not a big fan of the plastic ones or the rubber coated metal ones.) Now we have 2. Where are the other 4? NO IDEA. I've looked, believe me. They're just *poof* gone.
Also, remember when we found Gizmo in the yard? He disappeared again a few weeks after that. I have yet to see him again.
And, after WEEKS of looking, I finally found one of the kids toys that I'd been looking for. It's actually a piece of a toy, a little purple flag that goes with the Little People airport we have. Why couldn't I find it for so long? Because it was in an UNOPENED box of diapers. Yep, when I opened the box there it was. One of the kids must have shoved it through the little hand hold opening. Apparently finding a comb in the refrigerator wasn't crazy enough.
Do your kids manage to lose things like this or is it just mine?
