Tidying up - 4 1/2 year old style

On Saturday past we had a bit of a tidy up around the house - it had been neglected over the summer months. Lots of days away means not enough time at home, and so we rolled our sleeves up and got things ship-shape again.

Our youngest, Maggie-Jane, is four and a half. I went into her room (it was a week or two since I'd been in there) and was shocked by the state of the place! So I called her upstairs to help me sort it out, and to get things underway I handed her a cardigan that was on the floor.

She took it from me, trotted over to the other side of the room, and dropped it in the corner.

She looked at me. I looked at her, gobsmacked, with my chin on the floor.

She said "But Daddy, that's my special corner where I put everything"...
