Sadie. Oh sweet little innocent Sadie. But is she? I would venture to say, looks can be deceiving!
So, here's how the story goes. About 3 weeks ago, Jake's wallet disappeared. He claimed he had left it on the kitchen counter. So, we quickly dismissed the possibility that it could be outside of the house. Our first thought was to ask Sadie, "Where's daddy's wallet?" Her answer was, "In the closet." So, we proceeded to go through her closet, her room, and every other closet in the house. Over the course of 3 weeks, we have ripped the house apart, going through bedrooms, playrooms, purses, toy closets, toy boxes, pockets, you name it we went through it. No wallet to be found anywhere. Meantime, constantly asking Sadie day after day "Where's daddy's wallet?" Each day it drifted further and further from her memory until she had no idea where it was. Today, we finally gave up hope of ever finding it and determined that our home must be a black hole where things just disappear. Jake was going to go and cancel all of his cards and go get a new driver's license.
Later this afternoon, as I was looking for some frosting in the back of my pantry cupboard I was moving things around and found this. So, of course we called Sadie over to have a look. Jake said, "Sadie, look in here." She grabbed the wallet and with some excitement said, "Aahh, your wallet!!" Then Jake asked her if she put it there. She said, "No, Keinani did." Then she said, "Aaahh, and I found it for you!" Oh Sadie! What a crazy and fabulously funny girl she is. I laughed for a good while after that one!
Fortunately, Jake didn't have time to cancel his cards yet and get a new license! However, he did find some extra cards in his wallet that Sadie found in the garbage and put in. Aaahhh. These are the days of our lives!
