The Case of the Missing Cell Phone: Mystery Solved

On Tuesday night, I made the mistake of leaving my almost dead cell phone on the coffee table and forgetting about it.

On Wednesday morning, I went to make a phone call and couldn’t find my phone. We searched high and low. Since our cell phones are our only phones, not knowing where mine is isn’t a good thing. I used hubby’s phone to make the call, and spent the rest of the day looking for my phone. I *knew* that Lulu was the culprit. She has a terrible tendency of walking off with my stuff any time I leave it within her reach. I’ve found my keys in the toy box, in the kitchen cupboards, and even in the refrigerator. I checked all of her usual hiding places, and while I found other items that had gone missing, (my favorite bracelet, the missing earring, my crappy digital camera), I still couldn’t find my phone. (And I did realize that I need to be a *lot* better about putting my stuff away!) I tried calling it, but it never rang – probably because the battery was dead the night before it went missing and I never put it on the charger. I was out of luck.

I went to bed last night, hoping and praying I’d find my phone this morning.

A few minutes ago. Lulu found my phone. I was taking absolutely everything out of my kitchen cupboards when I heard, “Mama! Phone! Phone, Mama!”

Yes, Lulu found the phone. It was tucked ever so neatly into the glove of the boys Spiderman chair. The one place I didn’t look.

Take a look for yourself in our re-enactment photos:

So, there you have it. Mystery Solved. Hopefully now I’ll be a little more careful about where I leave my cell phone and other trinkets! The phone is back on the charger, well out of the reach of little fingers. At least for today.

    VERY funny, lol. Whenever Annalise does that, I simply tell her to go get it, and she runs right to where she hid it and gives it back to me. She even tells *me* thank you when she does this. The other day, she emerged out of nowhere with a really old pacifier (which she gave up about a year ago.

    That sounds like something Kaydee would and has done.

    Glad you found the phone and what a doll the culprit was.

    Glad you found your phone, Angie. Man I remember those days….we lost our keys for a week one time….found them in the back of the kitchen cupboard.

    Have a Great Day!
