Finders Keepers
The boys were down at my parents' house this evening so Ed and I could grab a bite to eat. However, we couldn't find my keys. We looked and looked until we decided just to grab the spare car key and leave the house unlocked. When we returned home we searched the house again before I finally gave up and called my Mom.

Me: Hey Mom. Could you please ask my son if he has seen my car keys?
Mom: CJ, have you seen your mommy's keys?
CJ: shook his head no
Mom: Are you sure you didn't see your mommy's keys?
CJ: (eyes wide) No. I not seen them.
Me: Okay. I just know how he likes to "find" things and then hide them. But I'll keep looking.

Less than two minutes later the phone rings.

Me: Hello?
CJ: Hey Mommy. I sneaked into the kitchen and I got your keys. I went to the living room and crawled behind the couch. I played with the blue light behind the couch and then your keys got gone. That all I know.
(while he's talking I'm retracing his steps)
Me: Good Job, Bud. I just found them. Thank you for remembering where you put my keys.
Mom: Did you find them?
Me: Yes, right where he said. How did he remember?
Mom: I told him that if mommy couldn't find her keys then he wouldn't be able to ride to his favorite store (Target) anymore.
