What a Friday for Shien. I was at work, and I got an e-mail that she lost Malachy’s Lunch Bag! I was like, “How did you lose something so monstrously big?” She had put it under the stroller because she was carrying so much stuff, so it must have fallen off to the side. Otherwise, she would have tripped right over it!
So, in the freezing cold, she went back and forth from home to school twice, asking about it in every store that was opened, retracing her steps and hoping that someone picked it up. She made 30 copies of a flyer and posted them all over the street. We pretty much expected it was gone forever, but decided we at least had to try…
I went to pick up Malachy after school, and lo and behold, I was approaching his school, and what did I see right on the top of the staircase legde? THERE IT WAS! Everything was in tact! Case solved, but mystery continues. There’s no way she could have missed it on the top of the staircase, could she? Did someone feel bad after taking it and decided to return it? No one will ever know.
All I know it that it was an awesome feeling to take down every sign with Malachy as we came home, retracing all the steps that Mommy had taken in her quest to get her son’s breakfast back! Thank goodness for happy endings! 🙂
