According to a statistic that I came across recently, the average North American spends approximately 12 weeks per year looking for things that they own but cannot find.
Pumpkin is terrible at trying to find things. She loses everything she owns at least once a day, and can't find whatever she is looking for despite it's obvious location within the house.
Stereotypical is my exasperation with Pumpkin when I find myself running around the house just one minute prior to her bus pick up, looking for her shoes, backpack, random toy that she can't leave the house without, or some other item.
"Pumpkin! Why are you so bad at taking care of and finding your things???", I shouted in futility last Thursday.
She replied, "I know I'm bad at finding my things, but I'm really good at finding the stuff that Grandma can't find!"
I think that my family may be above average at something!
