Like their cousin the sock...mittens seem to like to hide and disappear often. Knowing this, a couple weeks ago I bought a couple pairs for the little ones. I left a pair at school so that, I thought, I would know where at least one pair was.
This morning...I found 2 mittens...2 left mittens...from 2 different pairs of mittens. At least my 4yo has been guarding his Cars gloves like precious treasure. But I couldn't find the 2yo anything...but remembering the school pair...got to school...no mittens. I thought I was going insane...went to pick up the kids...he had them on!! Victory.
However, I headed over to Kohl's and bought 3 pairs of mittens and 3 pairs of gloves for the little ones and a new hat and gloves for the 11yo...and a new pair of gloves for me (mine are mysteriously missing too!). I like to have a stock of hats, scarves, and gloves in case they are missing, smelly, or don't match the kids moods that day. My husband can fend for himself.
Let's see how long it takes us to run around not being able to find them before school. Any bets?
