"What lies behind us, and what lies before us are small matters
compared to what lies within us."

At the risk of sounding like a terrible mom, I lost Catherine twice today. Both times were in our house. Our house isn't very big, so either she is really clever or I am an idiot.

I eagerly looked forward to Catherine's nap and laid her in bed and shut the door. Sweet silence for a whole hour. Then, I went to wake her up and she was gone. I didn't immediately panic, since she likes to hide. I looked everywhere, under her bed, in the closet, in the dresser drawer (she is really, really small as you will soon see). I looked in the bathroom and my room. Things were eerily quiet. Catherine is never quiet. I called and called for her. Nothing. Finally, I noticed the dog nosing around in the laundry. Yep, she had fallen asleep amid the mountain. No wonder I couldn't find her.

Later in the day, she was gone again. No one could find her this time, until.....

No wonder I buy wrinkle cream in bulk.

  1. Sure, she crawled in there all by herself. Uh HUH! We know how you like your quiet nap time. LOL So glad to hear of your commitments. Particularly Nastya since the kids with Apert syndrome hold a special spot in my heart.
