Careful, that halo's slipping!

Now, lest you think she's the ideal child: Beth did squirrel away Scott's wedding ring a few days ago. We know it's somewhere in the house. Well, okay, we're almost positive it's somewhere in the house. She of the very short-term memory, of course, isn't telling.

And she's getting increasingly fearful around other people (strangers, Santa Claus, random kids her own age). Going to nursery on Sundays is only manageable if she has one of us with her at all times, and at library storytime she watches carefully but refuses to participate. Heaven forbid one of those other kids should (gasp!) bump into her. Or look at her wrong. Or breathe her air.

Strangely enough, she's perfectly willing to share her food.

Are you sure she didn't swallow the ring? Have you checked hehem... her pants?

I don't think it's her memory. She has an excellent memory. It's the communication skills. For all we know "baabuoo" is her attempt to say "Hey! Dad's ring is under the couch."
