I walked into my five year old's school yesterday morning to see a pile of clothing in the lost and found that was taller than he was. I know I shouldn’t be jinxing myself, but he has yet to lose anything. Not a hat or scarf or even a mitten this winter. Come to think of it, he didn’t lose anything last winter either.
Don’t get too jealous – my two older children have more than made up for my youngest child’s bizarre (and I mean that in a good and loving way) ability to keep track of his things.
Here is a list of things belonging to my two older children that haven’t made it back home over the years (some as recently as last month):
More gloves, hats, and scarves than I am able to recall
A bookbag – yes full of books and notebooks
An iphone (ouch)
Homework folders (shocking)
A shoe (yes just one)
And the list goes on...
Judging by the pile I recently walked by in the school, I’m guessing I’m not the only one with forgetful children. One out of three isn’t bad I guess.
