The TMI Files. The Logical Child.No such animal.
Saturday morning is for swimming lessons. Magilla has her Disney princess bag that she packs her gear in for sleepovers or swimming.
Me: Put your towel and your clean jocks in your bag, miss.
As we're about to leave....
Me: Did you empty out your bag before putting your towel into it?
Me: No, I can see you didn't. Give it here, please.
I open the bag and pull out 1 towel, 2 pairs of knickers, 2 pairs of socks, 1 jumper, 1 pair of overalls, 1 top, and 1 toy. I then put back into the bag 1 towel, 1 pair of socks and 1 pair of knickers. Suddenly the bag can be zipped up! Huzzah!
Me: Okay, now we can go.
Swimming, at least, is simple. Getting Magilla to pack her bag in a practical manner? Not so much.
