Toddlers and Blackouts

My son, age 2½, was with me and the two cats from Thursday till last night. Life with a two-year-old boy and two one-year-old cats is similar to waking up from an alcoholic blackout several times a day. Why are all the bathtub toys in the living room? Where did that pair of pliers come from, I haven’t seen it in months? Where has every doorstop in the house disappeared to? How did the telephone get in the refrigerator?

When you think about it, the refrigerator is almost the logical place for the phone to be.
Almost.

Very apt parallel, it seems to me. Nice point.

yup. got three of them. The doorstops are either under the bed(of their choice)or buried in the backyard, or at the playground in the sandbox.
