Where Was His Shoe?

Last week Isaak could not find one of his shoes. He kicks his shoes off at the table, and he's often seen jumping around with one shoe on, and one shoe off.

I was highly annoyed! I wanted to go somewhere, and he didn't have one of his shoes. It wasn't in any of the typical spots. I looked for 5 minutes, and decided enough was enough. I had him slip on his fake Crocs, and off we went to the store. I didn't go looking for shoes; I had to get other things.

I forgot about the missing shoe until the next day. Again we wanted to go out and about. Daddy said, "Put on your shoes." I said, "He's missing one." Then Daddy was on a search. Isaak, Daddy and I looked for a good half hour at least. Daddy and Isaak even looked outside. It was pretty crazy some of the places we were looking. You never know where a 6 year old could put his shoe.

We looked in the hampers, on his closet floor, in his pj drawer, in his shoe drawer, in Mica's shoe drawer, in the play clothes drawer, behind all the doors, under all the furniture and no shoe was to be found.

Isaak said, "Dad I think it could be under the rug in the hallway." That made me laugh. If that were the case one would see a big lump.

I said, "We just need to pick up random stuff, and I'm sure we'll find it."

Daddy told Mica, "Hey can you pick up your books?"

Mica picked up his books, and one was lumpy and weighed more than it should. Mica likes to use random things laying around as bookmarks for his books. Oh he has bookmarks, but doesn't use them. Nope! He used Isaak's shoe as a bookmark.

Many years ago, we used to put the kids in the back of the Jeep, while they were asleep, and drive an hour and 10 minutes to the school where my wife taught. Then we'd get them out, wake them up, and all three would go on to school. One day we got to school and my son had no shoes. We'd put him in their Jeep bed without shoes. I had to drive him home, get the shoes, and drive back to school.
I know how the missing shoe or shoes can be.

And that's one of the last places one would look too. Hahahahah

That is hilarious! Kids do funny things sometimes. I would have never thought of looking inside a book for a shoe. I'm still laughing. Have a terrific day!

We have a certain place to take our shoes off... and I get so annoyed when broxton cant find his shoes- since that means he did not take them off where he was supposed to.

Oh that is too funny! Our youngest was very attached to his shoes for several years, and would sleep holding them. His equivalent of a teddy bear I suppose.

Allison is ALWAYS loosing her shoes. Drives me nuts! We haven't found them in books yet, but it wouldn't surprise me if we eventually do.

Well, that is something I have never used as a bookmark and I have used some crazy things..
