For those of you who followed the wallet drama on twitter…you will appreciate this blog post.
In case you didn’t, let me fill you in…
A certain little someone, middle child again, (ahem) decided that he wanted to run off with daddy’s wallet.
Daddy was feeding SJ on the couch when he watched cute lil ole Bents pick up his wallet and walk off with it.
And this is what I call daddy’s “first mistake”. He thought to himself “Oh I’ll get it in a minute.”
A minute turned in to 2 hours and daddy quickly remembered that he never got his wallet back from Bents.
Let’s just say, this is the point in the story where we TRULY wished Bents could talk. Yea.
We spent HOURS upon HOURS looking for daddy’s wallet. It was no-where. When I say I wasted hours, I mean hours I will never get back, looking for this STUPID wallet. No one had left the house so we knew it had to be inside SOMEWHERE!
This was Bents “I’m in trouble stance.”
He knew where it was, but he wasn’t giving up any information.
He liked to tease us too. Everytime we asked him to show us where he put the wallet he would walk us to P’s piggy bank and point “uh-uh”.
Not exactly what we were looking for big dude.
I was almost positive that he made a confession to me later that evening when we were taking a shower. He was telling me the WHOLE story. Too bad it sounded like “uh uh ohjshfdjfosjdaokfdslfj uh uh jfslfjosjfdso fjaosfj uh uh lfjsdfoasjlfahjsdlfj uh.”
If only I could understand baby talk!
Finally, after 3 whole days of wallet searching…we gave up. Since I am my husband’s newest employee it was on my “to do” list to call and get him all new cards. Yes. Just what I wanted to do. UGH!
And just when we got everything replaced…….our sweet little Elf on the Shelf had a surprise for us.
He returned from the North Pole with the most wanted gift of the season…daddy’s WALLET! What what! What a sweet elf. Do tell how he pulled that off? Ok.
Well, replace so called sweet elf with Gigi. Gigi found daddy’s wallet in one of my diaper bags that I am not using anymore. Stuffed away in a pocket where the snacks usually go. I should have known that wherever the wallet ended up…it would have to do with food. Too bad we had already replaced everything in the wallet with new stuff.
It was still good to know where the wallet was. It had been bugging the crap out of me.
P still thinks that “Sofie” the Elf works magic!
Speaking of Elf on the Shelf business, did you all know that you could purchase a plush Elf on the Shelf to go along with the one that comes with the book? I can’t tell you how many times I have had to explain to P and Bents that they CAN NOT touch Sofie or she will lose her “magic”. Two and four year olds don’t understand that kind of thing. All they care about is snuggling the cute little elf.
In walks Chippy (I know, not so clever, but it was P’s choice). Chippy was sent to us by Sofie so that the boys would not get lonely at night when Sofie had to fly back to the North Pole. And guess what…you can touch Chippy!!!! Phew!
