    My one and a half year old hid my Wahoo Elemnt and now it's gone... like gone, gone.

    It was cute at first and it's tough being mad at her, but I want my GPS unit back. WTF baby!?

    Been two days and I looked everywhere. I even showed her a picture of a Wahoo Element then follow her drunk walk across the house. Every time I do this, she returns to the couch. The unit was charging next to the couch on a side table where she swiped it from. I have tossed the living room and the couch (it's not open type so nothing can fall inside)

    Going downstairs to check the trash tonight, though my wife insists she is too smart to have chucked it there. Wish me luck.

    RIP one DeMarchi glove, you fit so well
    RIP Wahoo unit, you were infinitely better than the Garmin you replaced.

    This needs a poal with a vote option for toilet.

    This is an opportunity to start a running tally of expenses to present to your child when she graduates college.

    Hah! Thanks.

    We are in a split level with baby gates separating the half-flight of stairs. There's a half bath on the ground floor but we keep that door closed. I pulled every book, checked every shelf, pantry in kitchen, I got my Cygolite light from garage to get a nice penetrating beam to shine with into every corner. It HAS to be on the first floor.

    I will definitely update when I find it.

    My wife lost her Garmin once. Searched for it for days. Couldn't find it so bought her a new one.
    Fast forward a couple years, she was selling her car so I was removing the satellite radio. And happened upon a Garmin unit in the wheel well of the spare tire. Couldn't figure out where that came from, did someone drop it there when the built the car? Then we remembered it was her long lost GPS. Not sure how it worked its way down there.

    Moral of the story... look in your car.

    As the fellow parent of a 1 and a half year old I can commiserate. Anything within reach will be put somewhere obscure. Check inside anything that opens at toddler level like cabinets or drawers.

    we lost our streaming box remote for a few weeks and a family member couldn't watch network TV. Found it stuffed inside a doll house.

    Some are, some more boring parts are not. Though I am sure one day I will remember this exchange as I am cleaning a pile of flour off the floor. I plan on doing a thorough sweep of the lower level cupboards tonight.

    If your home has easily-removed HVAC vents, you might check those.

    I was thinking the same thing. When my daughter was little she piled up so much stuff that we had to remove part of the duct work to get everything out. It's funny now, but at the time not so much.

    I would check inside your shoes in the closet. Kids put stuff in the weirdest places.
    Just because you won't listen to reason does not mean I have to listen to idiocy.

    well you can eliminate anything over 3 ft high. BUT are you 100% sure you didn't put it somewhere and forgot about? Buy a new unit and if you find the old original one you have a spare for the next time a kid breaks or loses it.

    I found the Wahoo Elemnt in the hamper, in my shorts pocket.

    So the way this went was that I snatched the Wahoo from my kids hands off the sofa side table right as she was trying to make off with it. I was running around after her and then ditched the shorts to go for night ride.

    So this is a written apology to your daughter, right?

    funny.

    Between the ages of 1 and 2, my son loved playing with the guitars. He busted the classical guitar up enough that I gave up playing it, and decided I would get it repaired once he outgrew that stage. So, the guitar basically sat in a stand for a year.

    When I decided it was worth it to repair (broken tuners mainly), I began messing with it.

    Inside, I found the set of keys we had lost a year before. And, also, a hot dog.

    Having an infant or toddler in the house definitely leads to decreased adult brain function from time to time...
