OCD?





Why do you ask?

I think it is adorable!!!! I call it organized.

Laura said...

OK - that is too cute...

I traveled through Holland for a month with 20 rugby players and we stayed in hostels...one of the players was OCD...I never really understood it till I saw it first hand.

Thanks for sharing these cute photos!

My son is the same way, everything in a row, in its place, all the time.

Sooooo...is this what you do with your spare time? Line up toys?

:)

Hey It's Di said...

I am hoping this is your child doing this? I won't worry until you start lining your toys in a row:D

I would be really happy if my child would neatly arrange the toys instead of scattering them through out the whole room! They are easier to scoop up in a row:)

Okay friends, MAX is the one who lines up all of his toys.

You should know by now that I don't have time to do such things. I'm too busy making butt ugly loaves of bread.

BTW you should see what Max does with m&ms. He sorts them by color, and makes sure all the "M"s are facing up.

How old is Max? My four year old has been this way since she was born. We've got many pictures of 'lines' of stuff.

Black frosting- on that cake it was fondant- but you use Americolor food dye (order it online or buy it at Gygi's). Works fabulously. Same with their red.

That's cute! Does he keep all his belongings as neatly as his toys? I wish my children did! My son, at that age, used to line up his toy cars and tell me they were waiting at the McDonald's drive thru. He never packed them away, though, unless I threatened to sweep them up and put them in the garbage.

Good & Crazy said...

How old is he? My girls did this more than my boy. His OCD is all about the wind right now. In a screaming fit he stresses about GARBAGE blowing out of the van if the windows are cracked a teensy bit...
Very annoying.

Looks like the break isn't so bad?

We have officially turned off the television for two weeks (due to oldest child's meltdown two days ago) We aren't even out of school yet.

And so far....

Oh my heck, it's a dream come true.
I caught all three of my delightful children PLAYING TOGETHER (can you imagine) in the backyard last night! Amidst scream of delight and laughter. We may never 'find' the remote again. (sorry for the mini post--I'll take this up on my own blog).

I don't call it OCD, I call it lucky!! How do I teach my kids to be so organized?

Pappy Yokum said...

Well, in some ways you hope it continues. My oldest daughter used to line toys and things up by height - we used to love it when she would leave for a little and we would rearrange some of them. She would come back and get all confused about how they got that way. Anyway, now that she is graduating from high school, she is a total slob with her room. I sometimes wonder what happened with the organized girl.

Where can my kids get some of that? Seriously, I'm just saying!

Kellan said...

How cute! I get it, though. I've got to have stuff all in a row too - HA!

Have a good afternoon - see you - Kellan

Becky said...

My toddler son does that, too. "I make a choo choo twain, mama!" Everything becomes a choo-choo train, lol.

Elizabeth said...

That child has an engineering mind!
My mother would have rejoiced over such organization...I'm a bit scattered...I had to Teach myself to get organized, now I love it.

I love the "magnet" school...is it actually magnetic?
Blessings, EJT

That *is* weird! A child has touched candy bars and they're still wrapped?

I swear my hubby is obsessive compulsive. He saves every piece of paper that comes into the house. I have to recycle/shread all the junk. He has papers from college, 27 years ago. :)
