Mystery

I was just going through my morning ritual of blog reading when the thought struck me....Where do all the spoons go? It was triggered by one of my friends blogs who was lamenting the chore of housekeeping (which I agree yuck!) and mentioned the fact that she too has disappearing spoons! I thought it was a problem only at my house. Even after cleaning checking couch cushions and London's coat pockets, backpack and even her sock drawer....I still can't find any. I still have 14 forks and knives and only 5 spoons. Do any of you have this problem. She even swears she has cleaned her locker at school and only came up with one offering. Maybe I am accusing the wrong person maybe Sean is taking my spoons....I don't think they are the right shape to use as a screwdriver he uses knives for that! Anyway if anyone out there knows where the spoons go let me know there hiding spot I would like a full set again. I bet if I could find the 3 dozen pair of mateless socks the spoons may be close by?

Me too! When my mom came to visit she went out and bought more spoons because she noticed I was low. Now I have mismatched spoons and I'm sure I've even lost 2 of her new ones! Weird!!! Do you think one of our friends is a kleptomaniac spoon-stealer??? I can think of much better things to take - say chocolate!

I read somewhere that one of the signs of kids doing drugs in your house is that the spoons go missing because the kids are freebasing. I am not even sure my kids know how to switch on a lighter, much less know what freebasing is. But I have checked anyway, just to be responsible. I think there are spoon fairies, like tooth fairies, that take spoons away. Only they don't leave any money behind.

I guarantee that London doesn't know what freebasing is. Thanks for the heads up. I am with Kathy...I think one of our friends is a kleptomaniac spoon stealing. We need to have an intervention!

WHO TOLD???!!!!! Okay i admit it - its me. Whoa that feels good now that i have admitted it!! But its really only to replace all of mine that have gone to the shovel department, instrument, package opening (melia isnt allowed to use knives so she uses spoons - who knew) and other such genius ideas she(or vance) come up with. Kyan is still to short to steal them...i think.

So good to hear that there are others out there from 0-5,6,7 kids who also lose spoons. My grandma actually commented on our lack of spoons.
I think it's Kyan.

I used them to make wind chimes.

We’ve resorted to plastic all the way. I think paper dishes will be next.

Ha ha! Jim always blames the Clark Kids--they who do anything that is remotely unexplainable to adults..Missing Spoons? Must be the Clark Kids, Missing homework, again, the Clark Kids. Broken toys/computers anything? Once again the Clark Kids...Sorry Clark Family. I do not know who you are, just that you are a family that used to live beside the Holt family about 35 years ago. Where you are now, I don't know, just know that we still blame you for all the unexplained happenings in our home!:)
