About Me

I have discovered it is really hard to be Queen in a household with 3 princesses! Somebody is always borrowing my tiara! Well in between hunting my stuff down I am the proclaimed Queen in the Land of fluff (where my husband swears one day that he will die from glitter lung (you get the picture!) Besides that I am a dieting, exercising, crafting, biblestudying kind of girl.

Where do you suppose bobby pins go??? I bought 3 new containers of bobby pins over the last 2 months - (there are 60 bobby pins in a package - I've checked). I need these little bobby pins to keep all the stray hair back from my daughters faces into neat ponytails. - However they are forever, let me repeat "forever" getting lost - never to be seen again in the vacuums of our house. Well I do pick a few stray ones up occasionally in the vacuums - sounds great!!! However I am straying from my original thought - where do all the bobby pins go at the end of the day?? Will we move out one day and find a stash of bobby pins behind a book, or will they stay for ever lost where the other match of my favorite sock went to?
So right now as I post the count is 4 bobby pins. It's a losing battle!


  1. yeah... I got nothing for you on this one.
    I have 3 girls too. 'Tis a mystery my friend. My theory? I think there is a bobby pin fairy that slips in ever so quietly while we are sleeping and steals them. I mean, my girls totally put them where they go every time they remove a pin from their hair, so they can't possibly be getting lost...

  2. There's a theory that lost pens hide in your closets and hatch into wire hangers, because you can never find a pen when you need one, but there are always too many wire hangers.

    Maybe bobby pins are the larval form of something else ubiquitous, like... I don't know. What do you think?

  3. We have the same problem at our house! It's ridiculous. Hair ties too. Are there little elves who collect them in the night?
