I didn't give her my green eyes, so...

I asked Madeleine to organize her a room a little, prior to showing the house this weekend, and this is what she molded from the chaos...





You say anal, I say puh-tah-toe.

As the Queen of Anal Retentiveness, I am in AWE of your child and can only HOPE that mine turn out just like her. However, as punishment for ...I don't know...my teen years... I am sure I will have slobbity, slob, slob, sloths for children.

Hey Mignon, that's awesome. I love the ponies. I had some as a young girl, but my sister was nuts for them. Brings back memories. Better she can categorize than not...

If I were on the fence, seeing stuff like this would totally make me buy a house. Adorable!

All she needs now is an ark.

How cute is that? Everything's organized into little families and no one is alone. I'd say she has a nuturing spirit.

I was going to say "Where's the ark?" but Tink beat me to it!

My middle name is Anal, so I am not criticizing one little thing. I especially like The March of the Ponies. Marching purposefully toward the air vent. Oops, that must be the Pony Watering Hole.

So hooray for Madeleine. I predict that she will one day be writing essays that have a well-developed introduction, a body with supportive facts, and a resounding conclusion that reiterates all of the above. Most likely before anyone has even taught her The Rules.

You should have a caption contest for these, they're great. She's a set designer. Brilliant.

My favorite is the little clump of animals in the first pic at the bottom. Too funny.

Okay everyone, I was going to respond to each of you, but I put the kids to bed and shotgunned a couple glasses of old wine because Tester is beating Burns and my comments tended to be both cryptic and crude. So instead, I'll just say nothing. Well, not nothing, but I'm going to stop the madness with respect to the cryptic-crude. Go Tester!!!

Okay, I lied.

I still have to say holy shit Oh, the Joys! Yer so purty.

Someone peel me off this bright red sofa and prop me up so I can see if the marijuana initiative passed...

I think she might be my child. I have shelves of animals all divided up into families. Seriously, hundreds and hundreds of them.

And yes. I do have a problem.

Aw, she's delightfully anal! Ben seems to prefer chaos...except when he's set up an array of Hot Wheels cars, in which case it's vital to leave them undisturbed.

I love the little stampede across the bedroom floor. I can almost see the dust they are kickin' up.

I see leadership potential starting to come out... people will be a little more difficult than stuffed animals to organize - but not too much more.

Sunbonnet Sue!! That is so cool! I would have been heart-broken if you'd bought your daughter a pink ensemble of Dora the Explorer or Bratz for her bedroom. That little girl own anything not horse-related?

Those are some funny pictures!!! I wonder where she could have gotten this anal-ness? Maybe her engineer momma??? Hmmmmm.
