Sunshine Sunday - hidden treasure, donuts, and donkey rides

Yesterday my husband was sitting on the couch and somehow he dropped his wedding band into the couch.  We took out the cushions and still couldn't find it.  Then we realized something interesting and gross.  Small items can slip into the cracks and they go into a super secret area by the springs.  We had to tip over the couch and cut slits to get the ring out and we found a lot of "buried treasures."  Lego Spiderman's body, some Kix cereal, and quite a few other items that have been missing for a long time.  Gross and awesome all at once. 

I've always said that when I get to heaven there are a few questions I'd like answered.  1) What was the deal with the dinosaurs?  2) Where did all those missing socks from the laundry really go?  Etc.

Well, I kind of felt like we'd solved a world mystery when we cut the couch open.  One less questions to ask in heaven.

I know I've said this before, but I love getting one on one time with Baden while Rex is at preschool.  We enjoyed donuts together the other day. 


Baden makes it so easy to enjoy the little moments.  Out of nowhere the other day he said, "I REALLY want to ride a donkey."  I said, "What?"  Then he said, "I'm serious!  No, I'm not serious.  I'm Baden." He's a pretty funny kid with a lot to say.


I am grateful for little, tiny, perfect moments that carry you through the not so perfect moments.

See you tomorrow.  Thanks for reading.

  1. Ha ha ha ha! We did that with a couch we got rid of about a month ago. I was shocked at what we found under there.

    I did donuts the other day with my little guy and then pizza the other did with my youngest daughter. Love the one on one time.

  2. Loving the one on one time here too- nothing better than just being in the moment with them.
    I'm gonna ask 'what's with cockroaches?'.

  6. The first place I look when something is missing is the sofa. In it, behind it, under it.

  7. yay for finding things lost in the couch! ours is always full of strange stuff. :) and isn't it fun to have just one kiddo at home? I'm really going to appreciate having some of that time with just Emily while Natalie's at kindergarten.

  8. My mom had the ring thing happen once but it wasn't in a couch it was in her purse. She'd gone to the doctor and taken her mother's ring off and slipped it into her purse. When she came out she couldn't find it, searched everywhere and was sure she lost it. She had waited twenty years for that ring, her heart was a little broken. About a year later she cleared the purse out getting ready to toss it, then she heard it jingling. She quickly discovered a small tear in the corner of the lining, ripped it open to find out what the jingling was and discoverd her mothers ring along with a handful of change. That was a great day!

  9. Glad to know I'm not the only person with a list of questions to ask in Heaven. One of them will be: "Where is my engagement ring?" I lost it about 12 years ago, and always wondered if it was stolen or I misplaced it. Maybe I should check the couch! But we didn't own this couch then...

    I also want to know if the Shroud of Turin is real. (Isn't that silly?!)

  10. What about the donkey rides?

  11. Baden's hilariously grim expression while eating a chocolate donut is just KILLING ME. You'd think he had to get up early, suffer a long commute, and eat chocolate donuts, for pay, every day.

  14. That little space is the Bermuda Traingle of the living room! My son misplaced his Nintendo DS last year and after searching for months and not finding it we broke down and bought him another one. One week later, we found the missing DS in that same space of the couch. Along with about a million little bitty toys and enough cereal to feed a small city. That is now the FIRST place we look for missing things.

  15. How funny, I just did the same thing on Sunday too. I could hear all kinds of my kids' cars rattling around in there, so I cut open the bottom a bit. Some friends of our gave us the couch and I am guessing at some point their remote went missing because I found it among the cars and other random toys. I love these "everyday life" posts. :)
