Obsessive Compulsive Tendancies of a Three Year Old

  1. Must wear socks 24/7.
  2. Refuses to wear shorts. I don’t know why.
  3. Must be fully dressed at all times, including sleeping.
  4. Doors must be fully opened or fully closed.
  5. No stepping on cracks.
  6. Must not have dirty hands.
  7. Must not have dirty shoes.
  8. Lines up toys in perfectly straight lines.
  9. Must have banana whole, not broken in half.
  10. Ditto with sandwiches.
  11. Only drinks milk, juice, and tea warm. Not hot. Not cold. Warm.
  12. Do not eat food of OC 3-Year Old.
Ethan turns four tomorrow and I just don't know where the time went. This year has seriously flown by. He is so tall. So handsome. SO stubborn. So into superheros. And so easy to love! As I'm thinking about him turning four, I was reminded of all the funny things we noticed about him while he was three. Hence the list above. What will age four bring?

Um, OCD is right! But I think there are those tendencies with all little ones to some degree. Sierra CANNOT go to sleep unless her bed, blankets, and stuffed animals are EXACTLY the way they are supposed to me. This is a pattern in her head that her dad and I have yet to get right no matter how hard we might try! I love em though...crazy and all.
