Ever since my girls became infatuated with The Little Mermaid and saw that Ariel had a collection of memorabilia in her underwater grotto, Becky has been insistent on keeping her own “collection.” This collection consists of everything Becky values most: namely, her princess dolls, shiny plastic jewels, and an assortment of random toys and books she adores. She puts them in specially-selected buckets and bags right next to her bed. The thing is, once something enters her collection, she doesn’t want to disturb the arrangement, so she seldom plays with it. But she takes great pride in knowing her prized belongings are just where she wants them. As she explained to me recently: “I want everything the way I want it to be.” Makes perfect sense to me!
