Diagnoses of Early Onset Alzheimer’s Averted: Lost Potatoes Found!

I had turned my face to our stove, set like flint, determined in my course. I was going to make hash-browns and nothing short of 100mph winds and a sideways rain of squealing lemmings was going to stop me. Or so I thought.

I’d carefully set the bag of potatoes upon the counter. All ready to go. And so imagine my surprise when I reached our mine hand for the spuds and found it empty. I looked everywhere in the kitchen, literally. No potatoes. So I zoomed over to where The Hunky Hubby and Sweet Boy #1 were working at camp.

Me: “Do you know where my potatoes are?”

Hunky Hubby: “On the counter by the stove.”

Me: “Not anymore.”

Hunky Hubby: “Ask Sweet Boy #1, maybe he moved them.”

Me: “Do you know where my potatoes are?”

Sweet Boy #1: With 6-year-old nonchalance while busily watering a tree with a garden hose: “Oh, they’re under your bed.”

Me: “Under my bed?” With gaping mouth and bewildered eyes.

Sweet Boy #1: “Yep, I tricked you.”

And they were. Mystery solved…apparently many more to come. When I have him figured out, I’ll let you all know.


I promise you a crazed animal, a concussion, and a kiss in every single're welcome!

  • Yikes, but yep that sure sounds like Sweet Boy#1. Not planning for days yet, but he sure gets the job done with his current level of forethought.
