Got a problem? Need some advice? Write to Debra at firstname.lastname@example.org and look for your answer in next month’s Red Thread.Dear Debra: Now that our baby is a bit older and can take a bottle, my mom has been taking her out, or having me drop my daughter at her house every now and then. I make sure to pack everything she will need. And more. When I bring the baby home after visiting with my mom, invariably something is missing — baby wipes or extra diapers, a bottle or pacifier and sometimes even the extra change of clothes I pack. It’s not such a big deal, but it’s irritating to have things go missing every visit and then have to replace them. What can I do? — Misplaced ItemsDear Misplaced:How fortunate you are! It seems like Mom is a trooper — eager to help out and give you some much needed alone time and quiet. As for the missing items, you didn’t say if they were truly missing, as in left behind at Meijer, or if she just forgot to return them to you.
