Is This What Cabin Fever Looks Like?

When i was a little girl i loved to make lists and put my crayons in rainbow order. Now i see this orderly "thing" coming out in my children. This is what Mitchell does with every clementine that he eats. He peels it carefully, and then puts it all out in a neat tidy little row, and then after that is all done he can eat it...one slice at a time.

They also got clever with a old rope that Mitch had from my dad. Mitch tied it to his old ride on bike, then through both of his giant dump trucks.Do not be confused by the outfit, he became a train conductor...i know he looks quite a lot like a cowboy but he insisted that he was a conductor. Well, ok then!
He got Avery to be his passenger. They then promptly rode circles around my house with Mitchell calling "All Aboard" as they went, as loud as he possibly could! And for anyone that knows him well you know that that is louder than one mommy can stand. He is crazy loud!! But they are both crazy cute so i can get over it.

Fun, fun, fun! My kids separate their legos by color and eat colored goldfish in patterns too!

At least that's one way to get some exercise indoors! :) That's funny about the clementines. My daughter's latest trick with those is to beg for one, peel it, take a bite, declare it "yucky", and abandon the rest. Grrrr.... Kids are just nuts.

The "train" is too cute.

Hehe, I love the clementine "procedure"! My granddad pours milk into his coffee, takes a spoon, stirs 11 times one way, then 11 times the other before he can drink any of it. ;)

That is so weird about the clementines. The day before I read your post, I noticed my daughter doing the exact same thing.
