Making myself happy...

So I haven't gotten quite the response I was hoping for with the previous post. I did get a comment on my MoBot photos from Kim and that was nice! She is a lurker no more! And thanks to Jodie and Kelli for the comments. Even if I was a lurker on your sites first! I guess I am just going to have to be more interesting. If you are a lurker out there and you still haven't commented please do! I'd love to get to know ya!

For now I will let you in on a secret in my life. So you can laugh at my neurosis.

I have some OCD-ish tendencies. No, I don't wash my hands ten times every hour or knock on the door exactly 20 times in a specific rhythmic pattern... but I do obsess about the weirdest things. The most recent to show itself to me; the order of Madeline's blocks.

For Christmas we bought Maddy a set of Alphabet blocks. She has recently discovered them and dumps them on the floor whenever possible. When she goes down for a nap I put them away like this:

Yeah, that isn't crazy or anything. I could be cleaning the kitchen or checking blogs but no, I am arranging blocks in alphabetical order. The worst part of it all is that when that nap is done, this is what they look like:

And my cycle of crazy starts all over again.

So post, just don't tell me how crazy/weird I am... I think I have that under control!

Totally a lurker. I check your blog daily (well Monday thru Friday) to see what's new in your life. I realize it makes me a little stalkerish. But I figure it's okay since we know each other. :) And the blocks...I think that's totally normal and a completely reasonable method of organization. Though I'm perplexed by the 3 "N"'s that she has?

Wherever do you get those crazy tendencies!!??!!

As for a response to your previous post... patience, my dear... patience...

Um, why is the 4 before the 3???!?!??!!

Yeah, I hear you on the OCD. ;) The blocks look really nice that way, though!

OH MY GOSH! I DIDN'T EVEN NOTICE! I never was and still am not any good at math. You'd think I'd know how to count to 10 though!

As for the 3 Ns, these are only some of the blocks and I had to have enough to fit in the box exactly. (That and I needed more Ns to spell Madeline's full name in blocks. (there is an A on the other side.)

Hey Mo- Sorry about the lurking... I can never remember my husband's google account, and I'm too lazy to get my own. I read your blog pretty much daily and I love watching Maddy!

I just stumbled upon your blog from Jodi's blog. Your daughter is adorable! And yes, I totally understand the ocd tendencies! I do the same thing with my daughter's books.
