We lose things sometimes. And by we, I mean I. For instance, I can NEVER find the lens cap for my camera. In fact, I lost that little thing a couple months ago, and decided I could live without it. Yes, I know, the camera is safer with the cap on…whatever.
It didn’t matter, because I lost it. Or at least I thought I did. And I’m pretty sure the husband thought I lost it, too. He just never said anything, because he’s gracious like that.
Yesterday, I was moving something around, and I knocked over one of little M’s purses. Amongst all of the things that fell out? One of my bracelets…and the lens cap to my camera! There were many other things in that little purse, some of which were little M’s, and many that were not. There were many little things in that little purse that she found throughout the house.
She has always been a hoarder, our little M. She has also often thrown things away. Is this normal, this hiding and hoarding?
Do all kids do this? When she first came home, instead of playing with her toys, she would pack them in purses and bags, and schlepp them all over the house. She would take them out, and go through them, and then carefully pack them back up, and cart them into another room.
I guess this is something we will keep an eye on…but I would love to know if anyone has any insight into this. I am also glad to have my lens cap back…until I lose it again!
