So I completely gave over this one cabinet in my home for now.
Spending another 30 seconds finding the right container for the leftover casserole seems a small price to pay to keep this little one occupied. Every other cupboard in the kitchen has one of these nifty little locks on it. I'm not crazy! I quit latching this one as soon as I realized he enjoyed playing in it so much.
I wish I'd fussed less when mine were this little, during that fleeting season of life, and I don't want to miss a bit of it this time around. Neat tupperware cupboards be damned! At least for awhile, then I can go back to the happy OCD place I usually live. For now, I really enjoy seeing this little guy make a mess - when that nest empties out, things can get to be a bit too neat. Someday, not too far around the corner, when he's bigger and I don't live near him, I'm going to look at my neatly organized cupboard and wish I could go back to these moments. So I savor the daylights out of them. Spending time with Grammy is supposed to be fun, and I doubt he'll grow up to be a professional organizer anyway.
