I have a 5 year old stasher at my house. Candy, gum, clothes, toys– anything she deems takable, she stashes at various secret locations throughout the house.
This morning my husband couldn’t find his keys. He asked Evie (the stasher) if she had seen them. She said very coyly, “let me go check the van.” Evie came back with a collection of about 7 keys! I’m still not quite sure where all of those came from.
Two weeks earlier I quickly needed to find $1.50 for my oldest daughter to take to school. I said “if anyone can find me some quarters you will get a cool surprise.” Evie quietly walked away and came back with a little pink coin purse full of about 5 dollars in change! I gave her a marshmallow.
She’s a stasher, probably a stealer too.
Update: Day 1 was successful! For my nice thing of the day I wrote my husband a sweet note and had my kids color it. My organizing goal didn’t get the grand kick off I had planned, but the silverware drawer is indebted to me for my efforts.
