For once it’s not my fault!

December 5, 2008

For the first time in recent memory Haley has lost something – and it isn’t lost because I took it away!  When she “loses” things they are BIG:  Nintendo DS, her laptop, Webkinz, TV for extended periods…  And the maddening thing is that once she’s had a cry about it, she’s over it like it never even existed.  (Great “punishment”, eh?)

But last night when she was getting her school bag ready for the morning so realized something was missing – and she LOST it.  Not only is it something she loves, it is something with which she has set a goal for herself with zero pressure from me.  Really, that’s a first.  I’ve been waiting and waiting for her to find something she was really In To, all on her own.

And you know what?  For once I feel sorry for her.  We have looked high and low for it and it is nowhere to be found.  My budget has no room for replacing it any time soon. 😦

  1. Have you called Muni? The school? Ask Steve? When was the last time she remembers using it. Gads. This makes me sad.
