Great, I thought. Another little girl who likes to clean.
I walked past her room about five minutes later and was pleasantly surprised to find all her stuffed animals and other toys off the floor. The floor was completely picked up.
However, I didn't see them stacked anywhere around the room.
"Paige" I asked "Where are all your things".
"In the garage" she tells me.
She points to her closet.
I open it up and out tumbles every item that had been sprawled across her bedroom floor five minutes before.
"Paige" I asked again "Why didn't you put your things away where they are suppose to go".
"My room was a mess so I put everything in my garage" she replied.
Something tells me this little girl has heard her mommy yelling at the other kids to "Just throw it in the garage" when we have been in a rush to pick up and company was coming over.
I guess she thought the same technique could work in her own room.
Pretty smart, I guess.
