The Missing Checkbook

This time when something went missing, it wasn't Toby that misplaced but rather me. Or at least, so I thought.

I remember setting the checkbook on the counter Saturday afternoon and then forgetting about it. I knew I must've had to put it somewhere though; like tucked in a safe drawer, set on a desk, under a stack of papers or left in my pocket. But it was no where.

I told Toby before he left for work this morning that I would find it in no time. I think I was consoling myself more than him. I mentioned that it had to be around here somewhere and no way could've Landon taken it.

Why would he want to play with a checkbook anyway?

Toby gave me the don't-put-it-past-that-two-year-old look.

That look motivated me to glance into the playroom and what should I find but something other than toys...

At least Landon's way of using the checkbook doesn't hurt us financially. Yet.

The charming culprit

Actually Monica, he did make a tiny little scribble on a couple pages but nothing that wrecked anything. It was as if he thought he needed to "sign" the checkbook as evidence that he had indeed confiscated it. The nut!!! I guess it proved that he was the culprit and not Janae because I know she wouldn't know how to handle a pen at all.

Kids are so hilarious. :)
