Losing pieces


8 years of homeschooling and 13 years of parenting, I still haven't figured out how to contain all those little pieces, without losing any. A mom could go insane counting pieces. "Let's see...21 green ones, two, three...and 4 fives pieces, we're missing a five..." As a keeper of several different math manipulative sets, puzzles, and toys (legos, playmobile, polly pockets), there is endless opportunities for rounding up stray pieces and counting them. I think I've finally given up on this fruitless endeavor and I'm a happier (less maniacly obsessed) mom because of it.
