Cole has gotten so literal about things lately. He wears boots, not shoes. He wears a jacket not a coat. He drinks fruit punch, not juice. We drive a van not a car and just this morning, he got into his *van* seat not his carseat!!!!!

Please tell me this is just a stage!

LMBO...*VAN* seat! Rhiannon is not like this but she does have other issues that drive me nuts. I am sure it's just a stage.

Anal in a different way -- he's not so much into the words -- but actions. Certain things have to be done in a certain order. I have to ask which foot the sock and shoes go on first because if I do it wrong, we have to start all over again. There's lots of other things too, but yes, things are very specific here.

Oh, my YES!! We have quite the Type A personalities at our house! EVERYTHING has a specific name according to Kate, and she doesn't hesitate to correct me! LOL Her big thing right now is asking everyone "What is your name??" The other day she asked me what our back door's name was, and what the kitchen windows name was. Ummmm, back door and kitchen window??

It is fun to see her want to know about all the things around her, although it does get tiresome after a while. It's really nothing new at our house, Kate's been extremely specific for as long as I can remember. She was lining her blocks up in a PERFECTLY straight line at 10 months! LOL Since DH is the ultimate type A personality, it doesn't surprise me that Kate is, too!

I haven't figured out if Abigail is a type A or not, we'll see.

I have to keep a sense of humor around here, or I'd go crazy! LOL

Kelly and perfectionist Kate

LMBO!
