No Really Mom, I don't use the Tweezers

Over the years I must have spent thousands of dollars on tweezers. Now if I keep those tweezers hidden in a purse or some such place I have a chance of finding them the next time I may need a pair. If I leave them in the bathroom, in the drawer, medicine chest whatever or if I leave them on my dresser they disappear.

Of course then the ones hiding in my purse manage to disappear also. I have tried to fix this by purchasing cheap ones and keeping them in the bathroom and purchasing a good pair to keep in my purse.. but still they go a wandering. Now if my children had ever claimed to use the tweezers this would make sense. But according to them I am the only one who uses them. Hmmmmmm now how does that work?

This also applies to clippers, manicure items or any other small small grooming item. I suppose the elves not only come and clean at night (yeah right) but now they take small shiny bathroom grooming tools as payment.


  1. YOU are not alone.

    Scissors were another item here in my house that always seemed to just disappear.

    Now that my eldest has moved out, the scissors are magically always where I left them...

  2. Those elves clean my house a lot too... except they never dust!

  3. They aren't 'fessing up because they don't want you to know what they used the tweezers for. I promise it wasn't to pluck an eyebrow or pull a sliver out. They probably used them to remove the tooth paste cap out of the toilet or hair from the drain. Trust me, it's better if you don't know.

  4. My mom used to ask me the same question when I was growing up. There's something about mom's shiny stuffs and trinkets that children like.

  5. Tweezers are always disappearing around here too!
