The Missing

Car keys. Cell phone. Five dollars. Hair brush. These are some of the things that Lucie has taken from counters or tables and moved/hidden/thrown away. Thanks to the Tile, we have tracked down #1 and #2 on that list. The money? It’s probably in a landfill somewhere, degrading among the banana peels and tissues and Ace of Base CDs. And the whereabouts of the hair brush is yet to be determined. Maybe under a couch cushion or in the dog’s room. I haven’t checked Lucie’s kitchenette play set, so that’s always a possiblity. Mmmmm, “microwaved” hair brush.

Also, as you’ll observe below, the hot seat doesn’t really work very well at this age.

Anyway, if anyone is materialistic prior to having a kid, they sure aren’t afterwards. You just can’t afford to be “thing-centric” as a parent, neither financially nor psychologically.  I mean, people vs. things was a no-brainer the instant Lucie was born, but just in case I forget, there’s the constant breaking, ripping, ruining, staining, crumpling, denting, and oh yeah– thieving.

PS- makers of Tile, if you want to send us a check for the endorsement, feel free to leave a message! We could use the money…
