Hidden Treasures

I am always finding "hidden treasures" around the house now that I have a toddler. Anytime something is missing, I try to think like a 1 year old when searching for it; shoes in the trash can, hairbows in the guitar, money in the coke can box, etc. Unbeknownst to me, her latest discovery was the hole in my sewing machine case (where the handle pulls up when my machine is under it). I hardly ever cover my machine, since it is almost always in use, but I did move it to vacuum the other day. This was my discovery...

We've been looking for those crayons!!!

This is why she likes to go to Gramma's...

Kathryn's favorite thing to do while Mom cooks... I hope I never have a house with little to no counter space :)

Shelby likes to use her little firetruck as a place to put a cell phone or remote control! She also puts her sippy cup in the cabinet! But she will go get it when you ask for it!

Caleb use to "squirrel" away things like that. Aways fun to try and get a 2 year old to communicate where they hid something. Also, MF use to sit him on the counter. He looked like a cookie jar in the shape of a little boy. He would never move. Until one night in our new house (now). He was sitting on the counter and we turned our back for a second (literally). BOOM! Scared the stuffing out of me. sg

Okay, the first picture you posted of the "hidden items" - HYSTERICAL!

The last picture is amazing to me because I cannot, in my wildest dreams, imagine Meredith lying on a countertop without taking those ceramics and throwing them on the floor within 0.5 seconds.

What I do is get a chair and strategically place it far enough away from the counter so that she can see what I'm doing without being able to touch anything!

You wouldn't take me off you list...would you? I'm kind of wondering about our friendship right now. Okay...I'm not really. But you of all people should know I'm not on the "cool" list. That's why we are friends.

Oh I miss you guys. Keep praying that we will find a job closer to you.
