FOUND IT!

I tore apart the washer yesterday. I was convinced the jersey was there. It wasn't. I tore apart the boys' room. (Again) I cleaned it very well. Wasn't there. Crissy came over and helped me look. Went to Maja's van and looked. Nope. Half-heartedly looked in the big garbage can outside. Saw maggotts. Nevermind. Talked to the coach. No extra jerseys. Oh well, I guess it doesn't matter.

This morning I woke up and got up and checked my e-mail and my blog. Saw several comments about a two-year old and trash. I decided to re-check the big outside garbage can before I took it to the curb - maggots or no maggots. I took out all the garbage bags, trying to ignore the maggots. And at the very bottom, underneath maggots and nasty old food, I saw a flash of green. I tore open the side of the bag and Voila! There it was! Woo hoo! Mommy saves the day! Thanks for the advice friends!

Ha! That is awesome! I feel like we are some kind of special support group. Like, moms helping moms find any random thing. Yes, that's right.

I knew it! The penitent giraffe picked it up to help you, but it mistook the trash bag for the laundry bag.
Just blame it on the giraffe. Certainly YOU or Corbin would never had done anything so absentminded. After all, it's just a wood figure with no brain at all. The giraffe.

Wonder how much I've thrown away!

Hooray! So I had to go look at all the other comments to gain some of those pearls of wisdom.
Oh, and I'm wiht marsha ... it had to be the giraffe. Maybe we should all have a wood figure w/no brain at all in our homes so we can blame everything on it.

Some of the proudest moments of my experience as a Mother have been spent digging through trash looking for one thing or another.
