When I was a kid, one of the stories told over and over was how my sister, at age 2 or 3, fell down the stairs because she was trying to carry too many stuffed animals. Strange, I always thought - why would she have been carrying so many?

Now that I am the wrangler of a 2 year old girl I completely understand. She does not go anywhere alone. In fact the other day she started SCREAMING at 6 AM - she was awake and out of her bed and wanted to come wake us up - but she couldn't figure out how to carry more than 6 animals. 6. And they were all totally necessary.
