Last week, I went through the girls' closet and did just a little organizing. I picked up the back pack that Ivy had given to Eva (the one from China...the ugly one). This is the back pack that Eva happily carries around with her everywhere she goes. If she is outside playing, the back pack is with her. Upstairs or downstairs, she drags this heavy load around.
She can't even stand upright with this pack.
So, when I was organizing the closet, I decided to see what made this pack so heavy. Are you ready for this?
*One who ream of copy paper secretly taken off our computer desk
*4 Holy Bibles
*18 Lipsmackers (chapsticks)
*1 small tree branch with bark partially removed
*25 sticks with all of the bark/skin removed
*15 rocks, ugly ones, not pretty ones
*4 Note pads
*Baggie filled with magic markers
*A plastic coke bottle with label removed, filled with water and wild green onions that were picked off our property.
*Half a deck of Dutch Blitz cards
*Keys with key chain
That is all that I remember at this moment. The plastic coke bottle with onions really got me wondering what was going on in this girls mind. One time I found a plastic baggie filled with Millie's dog hairs from when we had given her a good brushing. Apparently, it was a worthwhile item to keep. I'm hoping this is normal behavior? None of my other children were this extreme.
