I try to keep some semblance of order in the home. “Hang up your jacket”, “Put your shoes where they belong”, and “Keep your Nintendo DS in the case” are words spoken daily, and today is no exception. In fact, I find it interesting, almost comical, that our special needs 3 year old has the routine of taking off his shoes and putting them away immediately after walking in the door better than the older 5. Go figure?! It drives me crazy, but today I just had to shake my head, roll my eyes and smile. This is the life of a mother.
