|Okay, so we didn't stop Selah from getting into the cabinet because she was having too much fun.|
|"Oh, hi! Am I not supposed to be in here?"|
|Ahh ... much better.|
Kaity is my organizer. She's the quintessential first born, the one who likes to be in charge. Who likes things HER OWN WAY. She's a born leader, but she is also (generally) very obedient when I give her something to do. If I need books put on a shelf, or something organized, she's my go-to girl. So, one of her chores yesterday was to put all the kids' videos neatly in the cabinet. Joe checked to make sure the videos were in the cases then gave them to Kaity to shelve.
Here's a great example -- while I was typing the above paragraph, Kaity watched a short video for school. When the video was over, with no prompting from me, she said, "I think we'll make this shelf the Wii shelf. Is that okay, Mommy?" And she proceeded to organize the Wii remotes and games on the shelf, even checking the batteries in the remotes and putting them in the charger.
