Two peas in a pod...

It wasn't quite as difficult as I thought it would be.  When I told Hannah that we needed to "talk", about her "room", she immediately said "I know mom.  My desk.  It's disgusting.  Papa would not be happy that so much junk is covering his beautiful desk.  Let's clean it"  ((Ahhh....a girl after my own heart!!!))

So, for Mo, here is the finished product.....
She decided that there were only a few items deemed as "treasures" on her desk, and she lovingly displayed them in small, beautiful, shiny, shot glasses. 


I did ask her why those particular items held value to her.  (IE: beer bottle caps that she found outside in a dirt pile????)  

"Well mom" she said as she lovingly lay each cap out on her desk for display.  "See this one, it's beautiful.  Gold and shiny.  But this one it's different.  It's green."
"Don't you like all the colours?" she asked me.  Without giving me a chance to answer she goes on.. "And, well, what if everything was just green.  Your whole world was green.  Everything. EVERYTHING?  Wouldn't that be boring?  Everything only green?"

"Why, yes, I suppose it would be"  I finally answer.

And then she left.  Seemed she thought that was answer enough.  Her desk was clean, and there were pictures to be coloured.
