Here's what our house looks like after a hard day of playing!
I am pretty sure I have my mom to thank for my toy organization OCDness. When we were really young and would go for a nap or to bed, my mom would organize all the toys. And when I say "organize" I mean it! She knew exactly how many legos of each color there were. So, if there 23 yellow legos and she only had 22, she would look until she found that number 23. This would drive my dad nuts! There was no such thing as a "random box of toys" in our house. Every box or crate had carefully selected toys in it. For example, all the baby doll clothes in one, all my brother's toy cars in one, play food in another. Nothing was mixed. I fear I have adopted the same craziness and I too will go to great lengths to find the missing pieces and make sure like toys are sitting by like toys! Thanks mom!
And the culprit of the above pictured madness?
Here he is...
