Maybe it's normal for three-year-olds to be mildly OCD, or maybe it's just my kid. But either way, Addi likes things in a certain way and she can freak out if they aren't "just so." It's kind of weird because Jay and I are not like this at all. Just look around on any given Tuesday... The house is a disaster and things definitely aren't right where they should be.
When Addi still used a paci, she lined them up in her hand in a certain order each night and would kick and scream if they weren't the way she wanted them. It was aggravating but also a little funny because she was so obsessed.
Earlier this spring we moved Addi to big girl furniture and added some butterfly stickers to her wall. It took me a long time to get them evenly spaced out until I liked the way it looked. They can be easily removed and I figured she'd try to pull them down so I made sure she knew not to touch them.
Addi has done a great job of not touching them at all. Here's what it has looked like for the last few months...
And here's how it looked last weekend after Addi "fixed" them.
I don't have the heart to move them back since she worked so hard to get them just right. But honestly, them not being evenly spaced out is driving me nuts.
I think she did a pretty great job :0)
