Yesterday I was out the whole day, I had to attend an event for my new job (more on this on my next post).
Bunny was left with my aunt who looks after her ever since I started going back to work after my maternity leave.
When I get back to the house after our event I just changed and after I started playing with Bunny. Everything was the same even when it came to our bubble play time.
It was time for dinner so I put Bunny in her high chair as we ate together. As usual she finished eating first so I let her go down and play after drinking water. E and I were even discussing a few things during dinner, after I cleaned up and E took a shower.
It was right at this time when I started searching for my phone. I asked my dad if he saw it and he said that I was just using it while siting at the sofa. So of course I searched the sofa, up and down, around, and even in the corners. I cannot find my phone! So I used E’s and called my phone, no ring. This was then that I remembered, I put it in vibrate (of all the times naman na i-vivibrate ko now pa).
E dressed up and decided to help me search for my phone. We searched every corner of the sala, the kitchen, and the rooms. Still no phone. The whole time that we were searching Bunny was just running around going in and out of rooms. This was when I realized that maybe she hid it!
I got down on my knees to see her eye to eye. With a smile I asked her if I can have my phone back, no response. I decided to make it a game and asked her repeatedly to give me my phone back. She took my hand and started walking with me around our house. Still she did not lead me to my phone. I was already ready to go to sleep without my phone when E thought of a way to ring back my phone using Google (will make a detailed post about this later). Using Google my phone rang even if it was on vibrate mode.
Alas we found my phone under the oven toaster.
Learning from this? Never underestimate the power of the toddler in hiding things. Also, when looking for things that they hid always try to think like them and get down on your knees to see what they see. 🙂
