Here are just a few things I have spent absurd amounts of time looking for:
1-The small screw driver set that sits on the shelf in the bathroom next to the kids room. It is so close to their room because their door happens to randomly lock and if they shut the door they get locked in, and YES they locked themselves in their room the other day and I couldn't find it ANYWHERE!!! I ran around like a mad women trying to find it until I happened to come across it in the kids play room on the floor. That's a really SAFE place for it to be=) Don't worry I got them out safely.
2-My Basil thermometer. Still can't find this one...
3-The kids eraser to their chalkboard. I know, not a huge necessity, but I swear, I looked EVERYWHERE, several times, and could not find it. I think that's why it bothered me so much. Well, during cleanup time we found it. It was wedged between the wheels under Zeke's spiderman car. Sure, exactly where it should be.
4-A check. I'm not even gonna tell you where I finally found this one.
These are just a few things that I have been losing my mind over looking for. Am I alone in this? Is this just a phase? I sure hope so, HA!
