Kids Are Funny Sometimes....

Where do kids get their ideas?

I noticed the other day that W's clothing seemed to be missing.. The last time his shirts, shorts, and socks disappeared, and weren't in the laundry chute, I'd discovered them already packed inside his travel bag. This time his 'going to Grandma's bag' was empty. So where were all his clothes?

Later that same day, I found him beside his dresser in the bedroom, searching through the bags I'd filled for Goodwill. He'd also unloaded the container I'd set aside for sentimental clothing items. I counted to ten before I blew up and asked him what he was doing.

"Making room for my closet."

His what?

Our home has exactly two closets: One in our room, which shares the plumbing to the bathtub. It is small, and holds my summer shirts, my capri pants and jeans, and my SU's 'Church Shirts'.

The other closet is larger, and is in K's room. The only clothing he hangs up are his dress shirts, his Scout uniform, and his dress slacks. So it also holds my winter clothing, mainly turtlenecks and long sleeved shirts.

S's clothes are downstairs in her dresser, or hanging on a clothes rod at the back of the basement. My dresses and skirts are also down there (my 'career' clothes).

W only has the white dresser above, which holds everything nicely. His shirt drawer gets a little packed at times, so I keep a close eye on what clothing he's outgrown. And recently, I'd purchased two inexpensive containers because I was tired of all the bags in the bedroom. I'd taken the sentimental clothing and placed it in the tote; the stuff to be donated sat nicely on top, and the area looked cleaner.

And then W decided he wanted a closet.

This is where he now wants to keep his clothes. Needless to say, I'll be tackling this job next. He's tossed everything on top of his dresser, and the extra sacks and blankets are now under his 'closet' and spilling out to the floor beside the bed.

Next year, when K leaves for Purdue, S will move her things into K's room, and W will be moving to her twin bed. As for if his clothing will move downstairs or we'll move this dresser to the other room, that's to be decided later.

I just want this corner straightened up again!
