Where is it?

Me - DQ, come with me and get your bag from the car so I can go to work.
DQ - What bag?
Me - The bag your book came in, you have to take it back to school today.
DQ - Where is it?
Me - In the car (opens car door) DQ, where is your bag?
DQ - I don't know, I left it in the car.
Me - No, its not better get in the house and find it before you go to school.
DQ - Will you help me find it?
Me - Seriously?


Me - DQ, how was school?
DQ - Good, but I lost my lunch box.
Me - How did that happen?
DQ - Well I finished my lunch, got up to leave and then remembered it so I went to get it and it was gone.
Me - Seriously...gone? Did you look for it?
DQ - Yep, everywhere and I couldn't find it. Can you take me to the store to get another one?

Me - DQ, where's your gameboy, I need to charge it for the trip.
DQ - I don't know.
Me - Well you need to get up and go find it.
DQ - (after frantic 30 seconds of searching) Mooooooom - I can't find it, I don't know where it is?
Me - Keep looking. Did you look on the shelf? The Night stand? In the Gameboy case where it should be?
DQ - Yes. Yes. Yes. It's not in either place. Will you help me find it?
Me - Seriously??

My child, finder of little, loser of A LOT.

Oh man... I used to do this, but it was b/c my mom always knew where stuff was! She could find it in five seconds when it would take me an hour! I guess it's a mom thing.
