Where Are My Keys???

I’ll give you 3 guesses as to whom I suspect?

Here are the facts:
1)There are 2 hooks on the fridge. One for my keys, with the silver fortune cookie key chain, that go to the house, car, etc. One for Kayli’s bright green keys, with the sparkle star keychain, that open nothing except her imagination!
2)I have a vague recollection (which tends to be my current status for memory storage these days) of Kayli holding both sets of keys out to show me that she is just like me! Yes, Kayli, we both have our own keys, now can you please put them both away? “Ok, Mom”
3)Preschoolers have a way of interpreting what you’ve said to match what they think you should have said. So, if I said “Put them away”, she may have “heard” Put them away for safekeeping, or Hide them away, or Find a new place for them, or, well, you get the picture.
4)It’s Monday morning. I’m going to take Kayli to daycare, then go on to a doctor appointment, followed by a dentist appointment. Or am I? No keys to be found!
5)As I begin to “grill” Kayli as to the wheareabouts of my keys, she quickly realizes that the missing keys include HERS, and she tries to begin “grilling” me! This is the point where my patience wears thin and my sudden change of demeanor scares her into temporary amnesia!
6)We all know that Kayli is the “master of squirreling” things away, but she can’t always remember all the “reassigned homes” for these things. (There are so many nooks and crannies, boxes and bags, cracks and crevices to choose from) We only recently solved the “missing wrenches” mystery. (Under the pillows on the couch in the computer room)
7)Luckily, I remembered I had a hidden spare key!
8)I’m back from the daycare, doctor, and dentist. I stopped to have another spare key made. (You can never have too many spares!) I’m STILL looking for OUR keys. I know I AM NOT THE ONE WHO LOST THEM!

Anyone want to venture a guess???

I think you forgot the prayer to St. Anthony.
