line em all up

I keep happening upon various windowsills, bookshelves, and dining chairs to discover plastic people or Fisher Price farm animals arranged in long, snaky lines. The smaller and more intricate the items the better. When she caught me eying her in the midst of one such design Audrey declared, "I have to do my work!"

Was she begrudging my interruption? Or does she feel an innate desire to justify her actions and be understood? I wonder.

I think it's the firstborn's innate desire to be understood as the martyr! :) At least that's how I interpret Brody's weighty declarations of hard work to be done.

Oh...this reminds me of someone I know who did the same thing so long ago. And she turned out so wonderfully!
