Finding Things

Strange things happen when you become a mother.

Sometimes you start sounding exactly like your own mother. Sometimes you find yourself doing things you swore you’d never do (I mean other than sound exactly like your mother). And sometimes you find that you are the only person in your house that can find missing items.

This morning I was the only one that could find things in our house, specifically I was the only one who could find Jane’s jacket. It was, and I know this is weird, hanging in the closet where it was supposed to be. Jane couldn’t find it. After many rounds of the game called “Did you check?” ” Are you sure?” she finally looked in the closet again, and found her jacket.

Dramatic recreation for your benefit. As you can see her pink lined leopard spotted jacket is quite easy to see, if she couldn't have found her shoes in that avalanche waiting to happen on the bottom that would have been a different story.

Laughing she came over and explained the whole phenomenon to me.

“You know that thing that happens when you can’t find something and that blur thing gets in your eye so you can’t see the one thing you were looking for even though it’s right there? That’s what happened.”

I can’t help you out with why you may sound like your mother and the choices that you make once you have children, but there you have it straight from Jane the mystery of why only mothers can find things.

It’s a Blur Thing problem.

    I have that blurr-thing quite frequently! 😀 Usually it’s my glasses, which inevitably are right in front of me! 😀

  2. Reminds me of the time I found the child’s jacket hanging where it belonged and got the, “well who put it there???!!!” outrage response. Because as a mom I can be helpful and yet at fault for everything all at the same time.

  3. …and when you become a grandma, it’s exactly the same…and your grandchildren look at you with the same look of bewilderment! As does your daughter.

    Lol! A very good explanation 😂 I’m rubbish at finding things, even the bugs that are literally right in front of me! My mom used to tell me that I have buttons instead of eyes and I’m pretty sure she’s right
