My Un-organizer!
I really hate Tupperware and all versions thereof (Rubbermaid, Gladwear, etc.) It seems to defy organization, and even when I do semi-conquer it, I have to go back now and then, pull everything out, and a bit like Humpty Dumpty, put it all back together again. Besides that, some things are just more important than being organized.

So I completely gave over this one cabinet in my home for now.

Because it's his favorite.

When he grows a bit he'll become interested in other things. Until then it's the perfect 'toy cupboard' to keep him occupied when he's at my house. He's right there, under foot, and we even put big magnets all over the dishwasher door, right next to this cupboard, just to keep him busy a bit longer. Besides that, I really like the look of a dishwasher with dinosaur magnets all over it.

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.
