Hang 'Em Up!

I don't know what I did to deserve this, but Lily has found something new that she loves - hanging up clothes!

I'm telling you, when she sees me getting her clothes out of the dryer she comes running and says, "Mommy, I want to help!"

Now, as you moms know, when a child tells you they want to help it usually means you'll spend thirty minutes after their "help" cleaning up a huge mess.

Not in this instance. Lily is very meticulous with everything she does, and when she hangs her clothes up she takes her time and even puts the coat hanger in the right way.

I did it!

Here are all of the shirts she hung up. Not bad for a two-year-old!

This morning she hung up her shirts and Ann Catherine's. Those of you with children who love Elmo will love this part. You know how in "Elmo's World" the children show Dorothy the goldfish how to do things? Well, as LB was hanging up her shirts she would say, "Dorothy, this is how you hang up a shirt. First you put the coat hanger in the shirt..." Too cute!

Now if I could just teach her to vacuum, wash clothes and mop the floors... :)

So proud of your little OCD girl! Now if my little boy can learn that. At least he knows what his hamper is and how to put clothes in it!
