The Crazy Places Kids Will Hide Their Glasses
For all the parents who have kids, with glasses on their faces,
You’ll know the cheeky monkeys hide them in the craziest of places.
A playroom may seem fun with its toys and games and more,
But in all truth this room of joy has hiding spots galore.
A toy kitchen with its oven and microwave for cooking
Can hide a pair of specs so that’s the first place to be looking.
A toybox next, a dollhouse too, and don’t forget the trucks.
The LEGO box, toy cash register and even the dress ups.
No sight of them here? Well let’s move on, to the room where they slumber.
A bedroom makes a perfect place to hide their specs forever.
Let’s try the bed, it makes good sense they sleep there after all.
Over it, under it, in it too, or even jammed up against the wall.
Check the dresser drawers, in clothes and socks and shoes.
Check the pockets of your jackets and coats, never know what kids will use.
Maybe they have curtains? It’s worth a look behind there.
They must be somewhere surely. They can’t have vanished in thin air.
Let’s try the kitchen now, this is becoming such a bore.
The fridge, the freezer, the microwave and every cupboard and drawer.
Inside pots and pans, the microwave, open them all and check.
Under the fridge – be careful you don’t strain and hurt your neck.
They like a snack so check that shelf in the pantry with the food.
Perhaps their lunchbox, or even yours, depending on their mood.
The garbage bin? Well surely not. They’d have more sense than that?
Maybe in the storage bin that holds the food for the cat.
No luck yet, so let’s keep trying to find these blimmin’ specs.
The living room is probably the place we should look next.
On or under, or even in, the comfy couch and chairs.
Behind the TV, in the drawers, or maybe under the stairs.
The fan is whirring overhead, could they be up there?
Or under the rug, or coffee table. Maybe we’ll just get a new pair.
The Christmas tree is up, check it bit by bit.
Behind the fish tank, or even worse, sunk or floating in it!
Wrapped in clothes in the laundry basket seems a likely guess.
Pull them out, search them all, my goodness what a mess!
The toilet, oh please no, or maybe this tissue box.
In these shoes or these brown boots or hiding in these socks.
Check every roll of toilet paper in case they’ve been stuffed in.
Behind the shampoo in the shower or even in the bin.
Running out of places and tearing up the house,
While little kid is slinking ‘round, quiet as a mouse.
This is getting crazy, surely they can’t have gone that far.
Run outside, spend an hour searching through the car.
Maybe the sandpit, that’s a shot, they could be buried deep.
Or perhaps the dog took them while the kiddo was asleep.
The basket on the bicycle, or pot plant by the door.
These glasses are just nowhere, it’s time to order more.
They’ve been missing for three days, you’ve looked in every place
Then your kiddo turns around – glasses sitting on their face.
