MOMI LAUGHS/ the missing hair clip

Apr 22, 2016 | Life, Love, Only Berlin

I may tend to forget a few stuff like where I put my eyeglasses or mobile phone, but definitely, there are some instances, too, when my memory is reliable .  Turned out though, that I can’t find them there anymore.  Some of my things are mysteriously missing.

It has been part of my everyday to tackle some perplexing household mysteries. Sometimes though,  I just relax and wait for my lost items to resurface.  Just like the hair clip I have been looking for weeks until I gave up.

Then I found it. Finally.  Yesterday.  Last night in particular.

Inside somebody’s pencil case.

Disguised as a paper clip.

And the somebody who took it even painted the hair pin with a liquid pen eraser.

    I am tired but decided to read some posts, and my o my. It was maddening to look for something as small as a hair clip and then to think it is gone, and then someone sneaky used it cleverly.

    It’s so funny to see that someone reused it like that. And why not, it works. Thank God you stopped searching for it, but found it anyways! Funny blog post. Sometimes the simplest things is life are the funniest.

    Hahaha… For a while I thought this was going to be a deep reflection.
    Lo and behold. Who thought of painting that hair clip with a white marker and use it as a paper clip? Good job by the way! 🙂 It worked!

      Haha. My 12-year old can sometimes be so ow creative and naughty or practical perhaps without the intention of hurting my feelings.

    This is indeed really amusing. Who would have thought that the hair clip has been turned to a paper clip? Your son is good for being resourceful and creative. I wonder how you informed your son that the hair clip was yours to begin with and it isn’t a paper clip.

      I wasn’t able to confront him though that day. But he was with me when I bought a new one so perhaps he realized his actions b

    Hahaha! This is so funny. Fortunately for me, I’ve already been able to train my son to ask me first before borrowing any of my things. So, when I’m missing something I know it’s my fault and not his. Haha!

      Ahhaha. Good training. i should do the same then.

    I am dying! That is the cutest/funniest thing I have seen! I can see my little boys finding my barrette and using it as a paper clip. It just makes me laugh so hard though that they painted it with white out, too! Hilarious!

    • msbolin

      Ahahaa. When I also saw mine, I just laughed.

    Funny. I don’t have children and I live alone, but my hair pins seem to have a life of their own and disappear all the time. 🙂

      Hahaa. Maybe the ants got interested or you have any pets?

    Haha! These clever boys though… Repurposing a hair clip into a paper clip? Why not? This just shows how creative these boys are!

    • msbolin

      Hahaa. I hope they would not explore too much as they might repurpose all my things into something.

    Using it as a paperclip is well, kinda cute, but to paint it white with liquid paper is hilarious, hahaha! I have to give it to them, so resourceful at an early age.

    • msbolin

      Haha. Perhaps he finds black too plain and ordinary thus the liquid paper thing. Ihihi.

    Haha, this is so cute! I have yet to experience this although I’ve had countless experiences on losing things too. And the culprit? The boys! Okay okay, sometimes it’s just my memory too. Haha

    • msbolin

      Haaha. Im guilty of that, too – my memory.

    This is super funny! I can’t wait to have these moments. So far, my missing things are usually found in the compartment of his toy car. When I ask him where his things are, he’d bring me where it is. Ahh, kids!

      Hahaah. Kids can be darlings without even trying hard.

    Haha! That’s funny! Last week I was trying to find my lipstick and I knew I found it when I saw my 2-year old son’s face smudged with red all over his face!
