Lining Up

Lani is very particular with her toys. There is a certian way to use them and when you don't use it correctly Lani will scream at you. Usually with a loud "NO MOMMMAAA"!!
I remember Wesley being the same way though. He had a lot of Little People sets and the pieces could NEVER be mixed up. It was okay until he had a friend over and they would make a mess of his toys. I spent a lot of the time drying Wesley's tears and teaching him that we can fix it. Even now he hides his Star Wars ships when one of his friends come over. This friend plays too rough for Wesley's taste and breaks a piece off every time. I respect his need to keep his toys nice as long as he can be kind about it. It is a good lesson on dealing with other people and we have a lot of conversations about how different we all are.Lani is still young, but I have a feeling that she is going to be worse. We are home all day with HER toys. She doesn't want the other kids touching ANYTHING; especially Alex. We work A LOT on sharing, using nice words, and gentle hands. It can be exhausting, but well worth it.

Oh My Gosh....Whitney was the same what with her Little People collection.... Whitney had the whole village of Little People... does she watch the Little People DVDs? I would always have that song stuck in my head after whit-bit watching it....

Lila is the same way...kind of. She doesn't have to have everything line up,but she does like everything in exactly a certain spot. The problem is that I don't know her reasoning and she gets frustrated with me sometimes.

Wow...she is detailed with her toys, huh? It's cute! But at the same time...I'm sure it must be exhausting teaching her to share, etc. Tate is just the opposite. He shares like a pro, and it's very nice - hopefully he'll keep sharing once his little sibling comes along!

At least they take care of their toys, I don't think any kid likes to share their toys, I know mine didn't.

My kids never had much little people stuff.

When E saw this post he was so jealous of Lani's barn. "I don't have that, we go tot the store and buy one for my party (his birthday), kay!"

josh built him a wood one, but I think we would have been better off with the Little People one.

I believe you are raising some smart kiddos there. My oldest son always lined up his toys and he is Mr. Smartypants now (6th grade).

Melissa February 22, 2008 10:56 PM
