Flannery's room is coming along. Just when I think I have it organized, I walk in and everything is all mixed up in a big heap, but her Raggedy Ann doll is teaching school and all of the Barbies are listening and having a snack of pretend food from her kitchen set, and so I really do understand why she needs all of the bins from her closet and under her bed out all at once.
Sometimes I look around at her room and try to take it all in, with her tiny treasures laying around and so many sweet toys and books. Too soon, I know the toys will be left behind for more grown-up pursuits. But, ah, for now, they are loved and mixed up and made into messes daily. And that is a gift.
