The Baby has her own shelf of toys. I added a couple of containers for the books and the stacking toys, and it looks more tidy. It might stay that way, too.

The Playmobil farm and market have their own play cases, and the tea set is in a box.

The Baby picks one out and brings it to me, saying, “Box! Box!” so I’ll open it for her.

I’m trying to teach her to put the toys back in one box before we open another.

“I always put my things away,” I used to recite for my children, “That I may find them another day.”

A lifetime of tidiness.
