Vlog #2: Woof Woof

Me - vlogging. Again.
It's vloggin' time...


I'm all about discussing the big issues here at Mummy Mayhem. I really am. It's all earth-shattering stuff here, folks.  


I hope you enjoy my second vlog. I managed to not scratch my nose in this one like I did in my first vlog a couple of weeks ago (at least, I don't think I did). Oh, yes. I'm becoming quite the professional vlogger now. *cough*  


Today I'm asking: is losing stuff, and not being able to find it, a 'boy thing'? Or is it just my family?


Enjoy.

Very funny! it happens here all the time, def not limited to just boys! my girls are always "misplacing" items. :-[

Your hair looks gorgeous. Such a natural vlogger, you are.

I don't think it's a boy thing. I think everybody has their moments (although I do secretly think it happens to boys more often!) The girls I nanny do exactly the same thing that your boys do with their school shoes. And my boyfriend is terrible too. He does what your hubby does and implies that I've taken his stuff and hidden it. Admittedly, I'm also guilty of misplacing things and finding them later in the most obvious spots.

One thing I'll never understand is how my mother always knows EXACTLY where EVERYTHING is.... I can ask her where ANYTHING is and she'll know the answer. Is that a mum thing? Or is my mum just a freak?

Jodie at Mummy Mayhem said...

Definitely a 'mum thing' - also a 'wife thing'. I can pretty much pinpoint anything in my house within a 100metre radius.

(I might be exaggerating slightly.) ;)

Jodie at Mummy Mayhem said...

Well, thank goodness for that. 8-)

Jodie at Mummy Mayhem said...

Oh, and thank you for the hair compliment. I have 3 little letters for you... G.H.D. :)

Loved it! Very cool. You are a brave woman. My husband is always searching for things! It's a running joke in our house! Boy thing!

river said...

Hey, look at you! :)
In my face, loud and proud. Well done! :-D
And this is your second vlog? I missed the first one... *DONT_KNOW*
Yes, losing things is very much a boy thing, worldwide.

Megan said...

Love the vlog, you gorgeous lady :)

Don't know about kids - a two-year-old never knows where anything is anyway, and if I do ask her she just shrugs - but it's definitely a hubby thing!

Crinau said...

Cool vlog. It happens in our family too. Two boys and a husband do the same. Luckily the dog (also male) has a good sniffer as he does not suffer the same.

Amy Turner said...

I don't think it's just boys. We had a receptionist who couldn't find her pass to the office once. We later found it in the fridge.

Sarah May said...

I can't say it's a boy thing specifically. I myself and particularly my 12yo daughter are terrible for forgetting where we left... At one point my hubby got so fed up waiting for me while I searched for my keys, that he went out and bought me a keyring, that beeps when it 'hears' whistling. Only problem being, I can't whistle.

Today our Kindergarten teacher was excited to tell me that an American woman was on the news for reporting her 8yo son missing. After a 2 day search she finally remembered he'd gone off on school camp. I started to feel a lot better because yesterday I forgot I'd left two of my children in the doctors waiting room, while taking another child for a jag. Fortunately, my daughter remembered them. It all came as such a shock to me that I shrieked very loudly and of course, drew rather a lot of attention to myself. So the thought of another mother forgetting where her son was for 2 whole days comforted me somewhat. Until that is, she said that as soon as she heard the story she thought of me. I do believe my reputation is in tatters. :-)

The best thing is that everyone in our household (4 females : 2 males) ask me where everything is. Even when, in general they put them wherever themselves. I don't understand them given my history. I guess it's the 'Mum syndrome' - we can do the impossible.

Katie said...

This makes me REALLY want to VLOG but I don't know if I'm brave enough. You did beautifully though. Kudos!!

Lorraine The Party Times said...

In our house it's an everyone thing...all capable of losing anything so long may chaos reign!!

Shelley said...

In the last week we've lost two sets of keys - (I say we, but really, I had nothing to do with it!!). I know they will turn up one day in some mysterious place. I've wasted three hours of my life trying to find them so far. Maybe if I lay out some dog food they'll come? Woof Woof!

Jodie at Mummy Mayhem said...

What is it with keys and refrigerators? *DONT_KNOW*

Jodie at Mummy Mayhem said...

Good point. Our dog is male, and he can sniff out a piece of food dropped on the floor from a mile away. ;)

Jodie at Mummy Mayhem said...

Oh, shucks. :-[

Jodie at Mummy Mayhem said...

So, it's NOT just my family! :)

Jodie at Mummy Mayhem said...

Good lord. Seems that losing keys is the least of our worries, huh? =-O

Jodie at Mummy Mayhem said...

Do it, do it, do it! You'll be fine, and would LOVE to hear your voice!!! :)

Jodie at Mummy Mayhem said...

Ok, admittedly *looks around sheepishly* I *occasionally* lose stuff myself. O:-)

Jodie at Mummy Mayhem said...

Good luck! Missing keys are the bane of my life. :'(

Hi Jodie I think you may have struck a cord with the women of the world. I believe (some scientific research has taken place at my place) that boys and ultimately there fathers - so men in general are unable to look for things....they can look under or behind things- what is that about????? This is not a male bash see my comment on Jodie's post on things for her pregnant niece (wish i could put a link here...hehe)

As to the key issue - our solution - to which everyone whom enters our house laughs at is the copious no. of hooks with various keys (ours neighbours, relatives etc) hanging in the kitchen. Now not very safe I hear you say but how safe is losing keys???? Once a locksmith who came to change a lock (not due not lost key broken off key in the lock - not sure how that happened) said that it wasn't a good idea to leave keys all in the one place..... yes but he is a locksmith so if he loses his keys he can just make another!!!! and if a ROBBER entered the house and decided to give the keys ago good luck to him with the number of keys and the deafening alarm going off with security on the way. But when we enter the house this is where the keys get put..not to attractive but it works!!!! haven't lost the keys in 10 years and that has to be a record!! XXXX

Love the vlog your a natural!!! J

3pmPimms said...

Sorry me again I am so with you with the senoir male in the house losing something and it being my fault...WTF get over themselves like we have time to mess with them......If i had the time I would do something more diabolical than move his stuff.....I might move it right out of the house and into the crumbling garage....then it would really be my fault!!!! then I would have to change the locks..... ;)

LearnCreateDo said...

Love your vlogs.
I think in our house it's just a lazy thing. Instead of looking they just ask me. My daughter is 12 and I still hear "Muuuummmm! I can't find my shoes" nearly every morning. However if I want to hide something she always manages to find it.

Aussie-waffler said...

You know I once had the brilliant idea of creating gps style tracking devices that could be attached to favourite toys if they became misplaced, but then I realised that I would pretty much have to attach a tracking device to nearly every item that came into our home. Damn, foiled again.

Jacki said...

It's so frustrating! It always happens when we're already running late for something...

Jodie at Mummy Mayhem said...

Ah, yes. I have seen the wall of many hooks....it is a sight to behold...and a good idea at that.

Thank you lovely lady. xxx :*

I have these issues, but only with my SO, who, well frankly fails at putting things in a good place, like maybe where it belongs?? Cue the 18 month old walking into the room i was in (and had been in for an hour with my sister) carring a can of alcohol. Uhhh WUT!!! I freak out, and yell at my SO who leftthis can on the floor in the lounge room to go outside and have a cigarette. THANKFULLY it was empty, but dang those cans are known to bite. I've had a few scarey cuts from cans!

My kids...not yet. But this being said one is only 18 months old, and Master B who is 4 is quite...the mumma's boy, and i've sort of drilled into him the importance of "Everything has it's place, and thats where you put the damn thing!"...I'm just waiting for that to all change when he starts school next year.
Even then i live in a house full of men (even our fish have boy names!) so i don't think i am qualified to give an opinion on if it's a male aspect.
That being said, growing up my mother was forever losing and forgetting about things. Uhhh, wait a sec, that hasn't changed :-E
