Paca's Principle of Parenting 3A

The age of the child is highly correlated with the chance of both shoes of a pair being found in a single room. The younger the child, the less chance both shoes will be discovered in one location.

Well here, all shoes stay in the entrance and never make it to any room. A much smaller area to search.

We never had that problem. Quite frequently, though, my younger son would have one shoe in his hand and one on his foot, and he'd come running to me (at 3 years old) and say, "I can't find my other shoe!"

In kindergarten one day, he literally tripped over his backpack while running to tell me he couldn't find his backpack.

True, and as the child gets older, while the chance of both shoes being in the same room increases, the chance of that room being their bedroom, or God forbid the friggin closet, decreases.

I posted a comment a couple of days ago, but apparently blogger ate it. I know it was funny, but now I can't recall what I said. (I know you are all sad now.)

Kids are the best amusement ever. And smart. My grandparents ran a nursery school in the 70s, and they were asked to provide a test group to see what childproof tops were most childproof. Hilarious.
