Baby Girl played a goooood trick on Kerrfunk and I this week. She claimed that her favorite blue blankie was missing, so Daddy and I began a fervent search for Blue Blankie. We didn't find it in any of the usual spots so we decided to ask at the YMCA and the grocery stores the next time we went, in case Blue Blankie was left at one of those places.
When we mentioned not finding Blue Blankie at home, Baby Girl would respond, "I think it's at home." And she never got REALLY upset about Blue Blankie being gone. We questioned it, but continued with the search.
So when Baby Girl had swimming lessons next, Kerrfunk asked at the front desk for the lost and found. No Blue Blankie. On the way home from swimming, they stopped at one grocery store and waited (Baby Girl included) in a loooong line at customer service to finally ask about the lost and found. Again, no Blue Blankie. I asked at the other grocery store. No Blue Blankie.
Finally, the other night, Baby Girl says, "Let's look for Blue Blankie!" and she runs over to the hiding place. Sure enough, she hid the blanket under one of her big teddy bears.
We are amazed that she kept this surprise from us for as many days as she did....and consequently went without Blue Blankie for so long.
She continues to astound us!
