Look What I Found: 7 Foreign Objects Left By My Toddler

By Naomi Odes |

"I'll just have a bowl of plane soup, please."

Now that I’ve had two toddlers, I can firmly state that this eighteen-month to two-year phase is definitely the era of the random object found in the random place.

I’m not sure why toddlers like to stash things around, but it must have some evolutionary survival roots.

My older child used to take the letter magnets from the fridge and shove them between the mattress and the box spring in our bedroom.

The second child seems to have a wider spectrum of both objects and locations.

Look what I found around my house:

    I swear I’m not trying to hijack your post with my own pictures/posts. It’s just that this reminded me of two toy finds that I had. The first was a total revisioning of the Nativity:

    The second was Mater parked in my breastpump:!/Momdeplume/status/145509340843999232/photo/1

    Yours are hilarious. And you’re so not alone.

      @Katie and Ladera Mom- I’m doing a follow up post with other people’s photos, if you want me to include yours?

    My son leaves dinosaurs in strange places. Last night, I sat down on the couch and ‘found’ a dinosaur with my rear end…

  3. Katie says:

    @Naomi- Sure!

  4. Katie says:

    Just realized that the breastpump Mater link was incorrect and that’s my favorite one.

    I found a Netflix movie that we reported as “lost” in my 3 year old’s pocketbook about a week later. Of course my husband blamed me for the missing movie and I was quite happy to prove him wrong!

  6. Ladera Mom says:

    sorry, just saw your comment @Naomi- sure!

    I apologise, but, in my opinion, you are not right. Let’s discuss it.
