It was one of these

It went missing last week and there is still no sign of it. I've a feeling it's gone for good as there has been a poster up in the nursery for months about Nike trainers that have gone missing.

It's not the fact it was a fancy bag that bothers me. It's the fact it belonged to my DD, it was for our first family holiday and it had a change of her clothes in it.

That's a shame. But maybe don't leave expensive items at nursery. What about a 99p drawstring bag next time?

I remember when one of my Children was in Year 1 . . he had a lovely Spiderman scarf, hat and glove set and it got stolen sad I was gutted for him . .

If you weren't bothered about it being a fancy bag, why post a link to it? hmm

TBH - I have two kids and stuff always goes missing. Doesn't mean that it has been stolen.....

I'd still be gutted if someone took a cheap bag!

One if the first rules of school - never send them with expensive bags

YANBU. But you will learn to buy cheap stuff for school/nursery from now on.

We thought someone had stolen my eldests school coat and school shoes. The coat was under the schools christmas tree, and the shoes were in the back of our corner kitchen cupboard. hmm

It was gutting at first though.

Not bothered about the price of it. I didn't pay full price as it was on offer in boots.

DD picked the frog bag even though her aunt and granny were trying to persuade her to get a pink one.

I'm precious about DD's belongings, always have been.

Argh the bag holds memories. I can't help it.

But not that gutted surely if it was a freebie drawstring bag with a pair of asda pants in it? It's annoying but nurseries are often a bit chaotic and kids have no idea what's there's, then if a grandparent picks up or whatever and doesn't know which bag to take, things can just go missing. (But if it was expensive it may well have been nicked).

Theirs not there's

They are nice bags, but very expensive for leaving at nursery or school.

When my daughter was at nursery I just sent in the spare clothes in a named carrier bag.

I hope you get it back, but if you do then keep it for home use, not nursery.

YANBU, whether it was sentimental or valuable or not, it's the lowest kind of stealing when people steal things from children, it makes me cross that there are people out there that do it. angry

Never send anything that holds memories to school/nursery. Send in stuff you don't care about.

notasillysausage Mon 27-Jan-14 21:18:36

That is a shame, I would be gutted too thinking about the not so cheap bag I have bought DS for his first day of nursery tomorrow but remember it's only a thing, at the end of the day the holiday memories are still there.

K999 Mon 27-Jan-14 21:19:33

It may NOT have been stolen......someone may have picked it up by mistake.....

Mercapto Mon 27-Jan-14 21:19:48

Me too Topseyt.

Someone went home with her jacket one Friday last year and we're had to buy her another jacket. That weekend turned out to be particularly wet.

I'm just annoyed at folk not paying attention. I label all her items.

Pascha Mon 27-Jan-14 21:22:39

This is why I send DS's spare clothes in a cheap yellow drawstring bag. I don't send anything precious in at all.

Mercapto Mon 27-Jan-14 21:23:34

Everything of hers is precious to me!

Pascha Mon 27-Jan-14 21:27:15

Nope. I have specifically gone and bought cheap supermarket joggers, pants, socks, gloves that have no value to me as spare clothes. If they go, they go. I will shrug my shoulders and move on.

You're going to have to get used to losing stuff at nursery and school.
It doesn't always mean things are stolen but things get picked up, moved, taken by mistake, lost... It happens - stick to cheap easily replaced stuff.

K999 Mon 27-Jan-14 21:29:08

My sentiments exactly Pascha....

AnotherWorld Mon 27-Jan-14 21:32:54

YANBU to be upset. Hopefully it'll have been taken by mistake and it'll turn up.

If it's nursery it could have been picked up by someone who only attends a couple of days a week, or has been off sick today, maybe they haven't been back yet. That happened to DD once, she persuaded me (against my better judgement) to let her take her favourite teddy for show and tell and of course it vanished, I was far more upset than she was, but it came back after a week.
