Photostory Friday......a path of shoes

Hosted by Cecily and MamaGeek



Will has always lined things up.....random things: Mr and Mrs Clause Little People,
cars, shells, and stuffed animals. But can I blame him? I like things nice and neat as well. Everything has a place and a place for everything. So yesterday during quiet time he asked me if he could build a path......Build a path I thought? Sure why not.

I was in the basement getting our cooler weather clothes out. Whew hoo fall is in the air! I love those cool evenings.

Oh yeah back to the "path"....I haul up Livi's winter stuff and notice shoes ALL the way up the stairs. Some are Will's, some are Livi's, and even my pair that I wore that morning. At the top of the stairs, the shoes wind into Will's room. He had every SINGLE pair of his shoes and Livi's shoes lined up. He was so proud of his path. He had to go to the bottom and sing it. I don't know if you remember this, but on another PSF Livi lined up shells and sang a song about them.


You can even tell he lined them up according to how I had them on his shoe shelf in his closet: flip flops, tennis shoes, cold weather boots, water sandals, slippers, boots-cowboy and rain. This is the path my little "liner-upper" made. A path, a path right to his closet where all shoes live!
PS, please ignore the leaves on his floor, just keeping it real here.

That is really cool. They don't seem nearly as messy when they're in a line.
I do remember the shell story.

Oh that's cute, me thinks they take after their Mom! :)

Mess? What mess?

My mom says that little ones lining things up is an early indication of math skills. And my mom is usually right about that stuff, so maybe you have a math genius on your hands!!

Math genius or not, that is just CUTE as cute!

Awesome! My son is a liner upper as well. My daughter is the total opposite, a tornado. I love the boots the best. I did my very first PSF this week.

I'm cracking up at Will's lines. Maybe he'll grow up to be an engineer or an architect.

Your Will and my Chase are kindred spirits. I love this about him. Early on, I was slightly worried about a bit of autistic behavior in this orderliness, but I sure have come to love it.

How wonderful! Did you leave them for action jackson to see?? I bet he laughed and laughed at this path!

Bless you for letting both of them just be themselves. Yeah!
