The all knowing omnipotent “they” say there are two certain in life:
death and taxes.
I would humbly add to that :
My inability to not be a clutterbug
andThe constant presence of Lego’s and gears on our floor.
I went to a new friends house the other day. It was amazing. Well decorated. Clean.
And no piles of “things” anywhere to be found.
And no indiscriminate small part toys on the floor or lurking in corners. (I checked!)
There were also no random cheerios or chips pieces anywhere to be found.
No errant threads or fabric scraps lurking about!
You know, what with him being brain damaged and developmentally delayed-I’m gonna’ go ahead and give Jack a pass this go around. He throws thing for the sheer joy of watching their arc and seeing them spin.
Me? There is no excuse. I have an “I’ll just stack it here until I can get to it” mentality.
I am loathe to throw out any piece of fabric, ribbon, or doo-dad that I perceive can be useful in some unforeseen time.
Maybe I should just take a tip from the boy and throw it all away…..
joyfully, with glee, for the sheer joy of letting it go……
I’ll get back to you on this. 🙂
