The Stuff of Nightmares
I've been feeling somewhat guilty for posting pictures of Grasshopper's room and then complaining about her "collecting" habit. So, I have deleted this posting. We cleaned her room. It was a lot of time and work. All day, in fact, and into the next. She put everything away and at this moment the room looks great. It was a good example of hard work paying off for my eight-year-old. She was tired, but just kept working (and without much complaint, I must add) and in the end was proud of what she'd done.
