She DOES remember it. She laughs and says that’s probably why she’s always making stuff. The habit started early — to avoid toilet cleaning. She was only allowed 3 hours of combined tv/computer time per day, so she had to be inventive with the rest of the time. Easier on sunny days, she could play outside. On rainy days, it was painting, drawing and making stuff.

She also laughs and reminds me of when I took the door off her room for slamming it. (Slam that door one more time and you’ll lose it for a week) lol. Good times.
