I walked in my daughter’s room and found her surrounded by a pile of items. “Her” drawer was open (each girl has their own drawer to store whatever little trinkets they would like. This system along with our formal toy storage takes care of all of our toys.)
“What are you doing?” I asked.
She beamed, “I’m organizing!”
Then the younger one joined in because she wants to be anywhere the party is.
The girls delighted each other with the finding of forgotten treasures. I was particularly surprised to find quite a good deal of actual sorting was happening. The girls took out and inspected each item and sorted them in to shoeboxes that were already in place to help corral their keepsakes.
I tried to stay out of it as much as possible and the final drawer was something any organizer could be proud of.
It definitely made me realize the little ones are paying more attention than you think (since the topic of organizing comes up quite a bit in our household as you can imagine).
What have your kiddos mimicked? Anyone walk in to find their kids organizing? Gotta admit, I was proud!
