I Spy

When my girls were little we spent a fair amount of time looking at the I Spy books by Walter Wick. We loved those things and still have a few of them. Yesterday when I was trying to get all those windows washed I was reminded of the I Spy books. You might ask why...
It's because when I tried to wash the windows in Teen2's bedroom, I was confronted by this mess on her desk. So let's play the I Spy game, shall we?

I spy a penny, a light bulb, a bit of hot glue,

some sandpaper, a chain, and two felt pens of blue,

some green handled shears, a little green heart,

a purple controller, headphones, and a car called "Smart".

And that is just a tiny portion of the stuff in the way of washing Teen2's windows. Every surface and the extra bed in her room looks just like another I Spy game. There are miscellaneous electronic parts, a soldering iron, a hot glue gun, scissors, screwdrivers, pliers, colored pencils, books, games, an I Pod, papers, stuffed animals, toys, you name it, it's probably there. I guess that's what happens when you teach a kid to be creative.

Oh this made me laugh! It almost makes me want to go take a few shots of Man-Cub's desk or Redheaded Snippet's closet floor but I fear the results would be a lot more shameful!

Gotta love a creative teenager!

I imagine we all have spots like that in our own houses. You just have to search them out and snap the photo. Maybe one day we can do a bee?

Well, I feel Teen2's pain (or lack thereof!). It looks remarkably like my own desk...the one I am sitting at right now! C
