I also have a confession....yesterday I ordered a bag of replacement parts from Fisher Price for all of Eli's toys that have small parts (even his Christmas present that he obviously hasn't even received yet. Gaaah). I even ordered TWO spare bags of balls for the toy that was missing the purple ball. HOW AM I GOING TO RAISE A SON WHO WILL INEVITABLY LOSE PARTS TO HIS TOYS OR BREAK THEM WITHOUT GOING CRAZY? :) I can't even go to bed without making sure his play area is put back together and all the toys are"where they go." Oh boy.
How am I going to raise a son and not have him impacted by my OCD issues? I know, I know...I need to let it go. Baby steps. Easier said than done. I've always known I was a neat freak (and certainly not a clean freak) but that dang purple ball just sent me over the edge. Doh. I will do my best to reign in my OCD but I draw the line at anything resembling a pack rat or hoarding :)
