The Little Darling Strikes Again
For three hours today, I couldn't find my phone. I knew where I last put it, and I also knew that Kimble liked to sneak it away from me to "play". One day last week, while I was running, Kimble took a bunch of blacked-out photos and uploaded them to Instagram. Ha!
He also knows where hidden things are...because he hides them. Last week, I couldn't find the remote control to our tv. I looked and looked. Then I asked Kimble. He went right around the corner, got the remote from his hiding place, and then gave it to me.
So I asked him where he put my phone. "I don't know!" he said over and over again. Not a good sign! I looked in all of his secret hiding places...in the sidetable drawer, behind the couch cushion, under his bed, in the garbage, and in the pantry. I also looked at places where he likes to put my things, like in my sewing drawer, my closet, and under my pillow. No phone.
Three hours...no phone. I felt completely disconnected from the world! I also figured I would have to seriously deep clean my house, in order to find my phone. Where could he have put it?
Finally, from the other room, I hear "Mommy, I got you phone!" He brought me my precious phone, covered in cheesy cracker dust. "Kimble" I said, "Did you hide my phone in the goldfish box?"
