Signs your child may grow up to be on the OCD side of life:
1. Scene- Dinner. Drinking milk. A single drop lands on their shirt. “ow ow ow, it hurts!!” Magically the pain goes away when you wipe up the milk.
2. Scene- Outside. Playing. Dirt gets on their hand. They throw their hands up and run to the door shouting nasty, nasty!
3. Scene- Their room. Getting dressed. Each outfit must be painstakingly matched, including socks, shoes, underwear, and hair bows. Yes my child can coordinate better than I can.
4. Scene- Living Room. Playing Castle. The child notices a piece of hair on the floor, picks it up gives you a look of disdain saying that’s gross and proceeds to throw it away.
5. Scene- Outside. Anything that could potentially be a bug. Your child points at the bug and yells don’t touch that. Bugs bite.
Have you ever dated someone that is OCD clean? No. Well then you haven’t lived. You never know what you are going to find when you come home. The living has been relocated to the dining room. Sweet I was bored with that room anyway. Your clothes have been washed, ironed, and put away. Awesome. The floors are mopped, swept, vaccumed, and shiny. Good I was planning on eating off the floor and was worried about the dirt. But the best part. I don’t have to touch the trash. Ever. Be jealous.
Oh it can’t be all good you say. But yes yes it can. Because I don’t live with a crazy i expect you to be as clean as me kind of person. I live with a you can’ t possibly ever clean good enough so I will just do it person. From time to time I think I am going to be good and clean something. Bad idea. It just gets re cleaned. Oh well. Guess I will just continue to make messes. That I know I can do well!
