I love coming home from work! I usually have my hands full but by the time I get in the door I am greeted with "Daddy!!!!" from my 3 year old (almost 4) and something that is suppose to be "Daddy" (from my youngest). The Dogs greet me with tails and tongues wagging. And of course my wife with a smile and kiss. Normally I can get changed but the other night one of the cutest things happened.

Abby (my 3 year old) came to me with a serious voice and holding an empty box saying.

"Daddy, there is a mystery, mommy's necklace is missing from
the box!"

" We need to find out who took it and where it went. I have found
a clue over here. You should take a picture of it and we can find out who did

She showed me a foot print on the hardwood floor (most likely left behind by a little dog)

So we put on our detective hats and went to work.
I am not sure if she is watching too many kids detective shows like "The Backyardgains" or "The Wonder Pets" but it was so cute & fun to imagine with her.
Here are the suspects...

Thanks for reading

Ps. Truth be told that Mommy had the necklace on and hadn't placed it back into the box yet.

I'm surprised that Abby wasn't a suspect too! That's who I thought at first...tho Coco has a "guilty" face on. lol

This story reminds me of me... When I was a little kid my nickname was THE SPACE CADET!

My vote was that Madi ate it, though I'm glad she didn't!
