What the heck?

I was on the phone and 2 year old DD came over with her cup, wanting a drink. I *think* I took the cup from her, came into the kitchen, and got out the milk - but I can't find the cup. I have literally spent 15 minutes searching. It's a twenty foot walk, for craps sake!

(I know the obvious answer is "get another cup", but DH has managed to leave her other three at places when he's watching them. 2 at a friend's house, one at Subway. It's the only one left until I remember to get another)

  • Look on top of the fridge. Last night I got a package of perfume, and I had it out, looking at it, and put it down. Turned around to put it with another Christmas gift and could not find that thing for the life of me. It was on the fridge :)

  • Look in the fridge, on the fridge, in the cabinet, in the sink, on your desk or table by where you were sitting. lol Oh, and look in your hand. I do that all the time. I'm one of those that will be on my cell phone going "have you seen my cell phone?"

  • That happens to me too. Just give her a regular cup. Fill it one inch and have her drink it in the kitchen.

  • I hate when that happened. You'll find it when you don't need itl lol one time I was washing dishes and my dd started crying I checked on her and when I came back I couldn't figure out what I was doing. So I started watching tv. 40 mins later I hear water running I go to see why and I realized I was washing dishes because I left the water running
