Quirkyland is experiencing spring break this week, so I’m just going to write about something I noticed this morning. I sat on my bed to put my socks on and looked up to see plastic animals arranged on the bookshelves. I knew immediately which kid had been in our room and it made me smile.

Sparky and I used to restrict access to our bedroom because we wanted to limit the number of drawers toddlers could rummage through and we didn’t want to put baby locks on the ones in our bedroom. If I leaned over to my nightstand at 3am to get a cough-drop and couldn’t open the drawer…let’s just say things might get broken.

Now that they’re older, though, we generally leave the door open and they come in sometimes. Now that they have free access, our room is kind of boring for them, so they’re usually looking for one of us. ┬áSometimes, after a shower or something, I’ll come in the room and notice that the boys have rearranged things for us. Lucky for them it’s usually not the folded laundry waiting to be put away.

I’m going to post two pictures I took this morning below. See if you can tell whether this was done by Zoo Keeper or BamBam. Put your guesses and reasoning in the comments and I’ll post the answers and background next week.
