Okay, I Admit I Lost My Ring I'm Only Human!!

It wasn't my wedding ring....but it was a fairly expensive ring that Hubby gave me for our last wedding anniversary.  I've been secretly looking for it for six months now and the other day I RIPPED our house apart looking for it.  I searched in every drawer, I took out all my jewelry, I searched under couches.  You get the picture.

I finally had to face the fact that it was gone.  My beautiful diamond ring that I love to wear for special occasions.  I couldn't face telling Hubby but I knew it would eventually come out and I was toying with pretending I was mugged, but that seemed a little extreme so I decided to keep brainstorming a good story.   

So imagine my surprise when I was drying my hair yesterday and Munchkin Girl was sitting on the bathtub, keeping me company, and I look over and see this:

Funny story about daughter accidentally taking my expensive ring

See that fancy diamond ring she's wearing while she cuddles her doll?  Yep, that's the missing ring!  I rushed over there and thanked her and asked her where she found it.  She replied, "I keep it in my purple purse Mom."

Kids love to collect stuff in purses

Silly me for not looking in her purple purse!  She has about ten purses that she stores things in, and this is the smallest and I haven't seen her use it in months, but of COURSE she stores it in the purple purse!  She later told me that she was looking through my drawer one day and took out the ring.  I also found a few barrettes, a toothbrush tip holder, and an earring.

She was a little sad to lose her fancy ring, so I let her use one of my cheap dollar store rings instead and she was happy.

What a rascal!!  #atleastshe'shonest and #sheneverceasestoamazeme!

  1. OHMYGOSH! You are soooooo lucky to find that ring. My sister and my niece both misplaced their precious wedding rings never to be seen by them again. Happened during moves, stress (forgot where they put it) or maybe the plumber got it? Never may know. So good for Little Munchkin being honest though. I once found an erring in the front yard that had been lost all winter.

  2. Hahahaha. That was a close call. :) It's a pretty ring, but it probably looks better on a grown finger!

  3. That. Is. HILLARIOUS! Except not. I would have died. and probably not handled it as well as you did. Way to go mama. I'm glad you got it back. Whew....

    My husband and his brother went dumpster diving for my wedding ring once. I found it the next day in my robe pocket. Whoops!

  4. This made me laugh because my daughter is continually hiding things. She says its so that her younger brother can't get them. I find stuff in the most random places (usually behind furniture). I am just waiting for the day for something important to go "missing".

  5. What an awesome moment. Definitely one for the family reunion story time.

  6. WOW! That is awesome. I'm actually missing some jewelry of my own. Can I check the purple purse?!

  7. This sounds like something that would happen to me. My daughter has at least ten zillion tiny purses that she secrets things into...on occasion I go through them and find every missing hair clip, bracelet, etc.

  8. Awww!! Glad you found the ring. The things I have to look forward to when I have children :)

  9. Wow, that's crazy!! I'm so glad you found it.

  10. I am smiling from ear to ear I am glad you got your ring back but we have a puzzle piece pincher. He has to have a piece of the puzzle in his pocket and sometimes you forget and wash the trousers............ you are getting the idea. Have a great New Year from Margate in Kent England. Don
