Caroline, where's Mommy's................

This week I have started to have swollen fingers, thank you pregnancy. So, I have not been wearing my wedding rings the last part of the week. This morning my fingers felt normal, so I thought I would wear them. I couldn't find them, I was running late, so I figured I would look for them when I got home. ( I worried the whole time I was gone) Get home, look a bit, no rings. I sit down on a chair in our bedroom( and now part study) while Josh and I talk about something. I look at the floor and see my engagement ring. Weird, but I am happy I found it. I told Josh they were missing. So we both frantically start looking, Caroline is napping at this point. We look and look with no luck. Josh goes into Caroline's room to look through her dress up stuff. This of course wakes her up. I go in and talk to her a bit and then ask her if she has seen Mommy's pretty rings. She sleepily says,"yes, in Mommy and Daddy's bathroom." Josh goes in to start looking. I bring her into our room, Josh does not find them. Then we ask her again if she did anything with them. She goes to the paper shredder and says, "in there." Sure enough, there was my wedding band, in the slot for papers to feed into the shredder! We were so happy/relieved that we found them! We were not even upset that she got them off the counter in the bathroom, we were just happy that she was smart enough to remember what she did with them. It had probably been a day or two since she had put them in there!

OMG, glad you found them and it's so funny where kids put stuff, but yes even better she remembered and that they didn't actually go thru the shredder, bet you were relieved about that!

I am glad to hear that someone else's little one did the same thing:) I did actually go through the shredder contents, which was in a bag in the big trash can! :)
