The Case of the Missing Potty

****UPDATE****
The potty piece has been found! Well actually Hunter found it under his puzzle pieces in a toy bin. I guess I didn't dig deep enough!

____________________________
This is beyond odd.

Today Hunter yelled to me, "Mom, mom come see. I peed in my potty!" I hear this every time he uses his potty, and I go right over to grab out the little inner pot and dump it out into the toilet. So when Hunter gave the yell late in the morning I went over to do the routine.

Except the inner pot to the potty wasn't there. Odd, because I know I had dumped it already that morning and so had Matt. I had to take the entire potty to the sink and wash it all out. I searched the upstairs of our house and could not find the pot. Matt was at work, so I gave him a call; he was just as perplexed as I was.

When Matt came home a short while later we both scoured the house. Cavan has been launching everything he can grab through the stair rails to the floor below. Checked there and nothing. Checked the garbage where Hunter usually tosses items and nothing. I went through all my cupboards, the freezer (we have a bottom door one and Hunter thinks it is his own personal fridge), behind the sofas, the tub, the shower, under my bed, the closets, the ball tent, the crib.... NOTHING!

I have no clue where the damn thing is. And taking the entire potty to the sink is not fun. Thankfully he took a huge crap earlier this morning before we lost the inner pot. This is just nuts. Where should I check next??

Under a bed or on your back deck.

Did the tub, and the cupboard. Sink is open underneath. Did my bed... however not Hunters. Too bad he is already in it. And the back deck door is snowed in! Next?!

Toy chest? Behind the curtains? Bottom drawer of the dresser?

in the washer?

It's definitely been eaten by your couch cushions. They're ravenous after having been steam-cleaned.

haha that's so funny. I have no idea where to look. I can't wait to find out where it went though!

in this house, if we cant find something, it will be in their toy bin :) and only children of mine will do this..they've hidden stuff in my fabric scrap box :)

Tina said...

I think Kennie is on to something. Try the washer.

Darn! Too late! I was going to suggest looking under the cushions of the couch. That's always the first place I look when the kids lose the tv remote.

Don't worry about not digging deep enough to find it. When it comes to potties and what goes in them, really, you can only dig so deep.
