I have strange children




Both are strange in their own ways, and both always have strange ideas. Whitney for instance will find a bag, any bag--Target, gift bag, purse, Halloween bucket and hoard tons and tons of toys inside. If you're missing something (like your keys), chances are it's stashed in one of Whitney's many bags. It's all very calculated. There seems to be some system in what toys get stashed and which toys don't. I wonder what's going on in my kid's heads sometimes. Well, this weekend Whitney placed a mitten on the door handle. Once again it was very calculated. She even announced "that is where the mitten is supposed to be." And she was determined no one move it. Not only do my kids have strange ideas, but they are very stubborn. It makes me wonder what their preschool teachers think!

Ez is exactly the same with the hording toys in bags. It all started innocently enough with a few extra things in his trick or treat bag now he'll put stuff in anything. Shopping bags, backpacks, boxes. Like you said there is some order but often I have not idea what it is. I mean the red toys thing is obvious but the rest of it...well I just don't know. The hording thing does drive me nuts though because I myself have horded all his toys into toy bins in and order that makes sense to me and when he puts them in the bags well he just throws my ordering. Maybe I should just let him organize the ways he wants them :)

Hey Sarah and Steve,
So this is kind of random, but Steve, do you remember Rand Champion from the newsroom? Because he works at NDSU in Fargo! Here's a link to his blog: http://championfam.blogspot.com/

(And please don't ask how I found out all of this info. Yes, it's true, I spend too much time on other people's blogs!)
