She Wants it All

And can you really blame her, for baby Fifi is now a fully fledged cruising machine. Three plus toys pose no obstacle, random sandwiches or fruit meant for Toddler boy, who wont eat anything, get devoured before I can turn my head and the television remote control has once more become the most coveted object within our household.

Toddler boy is finding this transition from having a static baby to a movable one quite hard. He likes everything to be exactly in its place. Toys are lined up meticulously, his shoes need to be put precisely next to mine and heaven forbid if a little man doesn’t fit into a specific toy. Hes at the stage where he is running away shouting ‘Fifi get me’. What does one do? I find it all very hard as I am a magnet for mess, as is his father. This need and desire for ruthless tidiness is alien to me and evidently also his sister. Perhaps, in years to come we will be organised!

    I'd make the most of it and enjoy letting him tidy for you – Toddlergirl has a thing for dusting/wiping things which I'm afraid to say we encourage…

    Love Muddling Along Mummy's idea for getting the child to do the tidying! How about having a special 'neat box' of stuff that is his, and his alone. You could get one with compartments, which would give him hours of fun. Good luck!

    It must be boys. Garden Boy is always tidying crayons away before Garden Girl has finished her pictures. Garden Boy is so proud he is tidying up and can't understand why Garden Girl will not give up the remaining crayon. I have to keep tipping the crayons out again so he has more mess to clean up and will leave Garden Girl alone. So just keep making a mess to keep Toddler Boy occupied and you
