My Little O. C. D.arling

I love it when my kids can find something quiet and non-destructive to do to entertain themselves. Though sometimes I do wonder if this kind of repetitive behavior is normal. You should see what she does with blocks.
We had to get rid of all the really small elastics (the half-inchers) after I caught her with dark-purple hands a few times.

She had already moved all the elastics onto one hand before she started the transfer to the other. I wanted to see how long it would take her--in real time, five minutes. The soundtrack is "Bagdad" played by Lissa.

I love the fast-forward style with siblings racing around in the background, and the occasional pause for commentary! Excellent soundtrack, too.

That is so funny in sped-up time with the the soundtrack and Anderson getting into a pillowcase in the background. Funny Rosalie.

So creative. The soundtrack couldn't be better. Appreciate that she has focus. Life is very hard with out it! Says sleep deprived aunt. And such nice manners she has.

That Lissa has some speedy fingers. I loved the soundtrack. Isn't it funny what entertains this age? I pack a bag full of books and toys for church and Luke ends up playing with someone's little zip bag for the majority of church - he was fascinated with it. I too LOVE anything that keeps them quiet and entertained. That is a cute cute Roey.

That was great! I loved everything about it. I need to learn how to post a speeded up video, that is way cool!

I finally figured out what I'm going to make for you (remember that posting a while back?) Now I just have to survive April and it should be heading your way sometime in May.

here's O.c. I was so enthralled I watched it twice. "there goes another elastic and another..." There's something so orderly and satisfying about this simple task.
