The counter tops are not high enough, the tables are too low, there are not enough high places for me to stuff things. I am constantly sticking things in unusual places so that they do not get destroyed or discovered by my curious trio. I am also losing my mind because half the time I don't remember where I "stuck" certain things. I cannot wait until I can put things back on shelves and leave things at eye level and know that they will not disappear. This is a perfect example of what happened this morning.
The trips finished breakfast, older kids were gone on the bus and I was doing my usual routine. I tend to put some laundry in, grab some sort of meat out of the freezer for dinner all while the Today Show is on in the kitchen. The trips are usually watching their morning "Calliou" and it is relatively peaceful. I was picking up in the kitchen and as I bent down to grab some shoes that were under the table my eyes were distracted by an item on the bench that was reflective to the light. As I looked at it.....it took me minute...it was a silver little square with DEC on it. Can anyone guess?
