"Mom! Where is my X, Y, and/or Z?!"
How many times in a day do you hear: "where is my favorite sweatshirt?" or "where is my backpack?" or "where is my library card?" As if we don't have enough to do keeping track of other things. Most times, I simply state that I am not the keeper of their things, that they need to find it on their own. That is never the right answer, however.
Do you get this a lot? What is the right answer? I welcome your ideas on how to deflect the "where is my X, Y and/or Z?" questions.
