LilMissRefney...the finder of lost stuff
The weekend before Christmas, I lost my wedding band. It had been too big for some time (that's what I get for getting married while pregnant...haha), to the point I could just fling my hand and it would fly off. So, one morning, I went to take it off to moisturize my face, and...it was gone. Nowhere. I searched and searched and came to the conclusion it got thrown into the trash or down the shower drain. I was upset, but it was easily replaceable. I mean, I got it at HellMart, ffs. It was the ring Mr. Refney had given me, though, so I was still upset about it.
fast forward until yesterday. New Year's Day. LilMiss gets up early, while we want to sleep in, of course. After getting her breakfast, she's quietly running around our bedroom while Mr. Refney and I are dozing. I hear a clicking noise on the table...I think she has gotten a hold of some coinage, so I jump up to grab it out of her hand before she decides to eat it. No, it wasn't a coin...it was my ring. I don't know where she found it. I turned that room upside down looking for it. And here comes miss indigo child with her beatific smile on her face, holding my ring.
Now if she could only find where I stashed that million dollar lottery ticket....
Mrs. Refney is a stay-at-home mom and housefrau. Mr. Refney is man of many talents, one of which includes creating beautiful spaces. Lil'MissRefney is our darling, beautiful, curious, smart love child. We are looking happily to the future, of growing together, moving up in the world, and teaching LilMis' (and any others that may come along) the ins and outs of this crazy world. Yearning to raise free-thinking, questioning, smart kids.
