Fluff is the Clue!

Chloe went in to visit John in his bedroom this morning. Since it sounded like they were playing happily I had a shower and popped into the office to check my email.

{What was I thinking?!?}


She found out my peanut nursing pillow has a small hole in it. {Why, oh, why didn’t I sew it the moment I noticed it?!?} There was fluff everywhere.

I did what any reasonable blogger mother would: I put her in a safe place (time out) and grabbed my camera!


I tidied and snapped pictures. Then I sat with her and we talked about how it isn’t nice to make a mess or break/wreck things.

She said, “I so sorry Mommy. I won’t do it yeserday.”

I was pretty sure she was repentant, though a little confused about the day. LOL.  I hugged her.

She said, “Mommy, I will help you find more clues.”

“Huh?” was my intelligent response.

“I put clues in the bathroom too.” she said proudly.

Pillow fluff is the clue. What a crazy little monkey. Her “game” of leaving “clues” around made perfect sense to her. I think we’ll have to come up with a different version to play though; preferably one that doesn’t involve my poor pillow!

Moral of the Story (choose your own):

Don’t have children. Don’t shower or check your email. Sew gaping holes. Don’t leave children unattended.

I am thankful for  my adventure-filled life! I think we’ll have pancakes for breakfast 🙂

SATURDAY MORNING UPDATE: I am still finding more “clues” each day. This morning I found fluff balls in my shoes in my closet. She sure was thorough!


  1. Awe, what a little sweetheart! I loved her conversation and your description of the events, haha!!!

    Thank you for your comment on my post yesterday about getting back into church. That is great to know your kids can sit through the service! That is what I’m hoping – that if we keep going each week then he’ll be able to stay for longer and longer because he’ll have the routine figured out. I will let you know how it goes, thanks again! 🙂

  2. That’s funny! Probably mostly because I can totally relate. How boring life would be without kids and the silly things they come up with. Oh and my little girl thinks everything that happened yesterday was las-year.
