The Lightning Kid Is A Neat-Freak

The King and Queen had noticed a few particular behaviours that the Lightning Kid had picked up. For one thing, he liked to ensure the dining room chairs were pushed in any time he passed through the room. It seemed like he just liked things to be orderly in a certain way. Unfortunately, this did not translate to the toy area, where blocks, puzzle pieces, teddy bears, and other toys lay around like the aftermath of a terrible battle.


Still, there were other signs of a desire for order. While it’s common to worry about what toddlers will pick up off the floor, the Royal parents’ concerns were somewhat lessened every time the Lightning Kid would present a piece of tissue or a bit of packaging that he found, and after announcing that he had found it, he would march over to the trash can and drop it off.


The Queen had been trying diligently to teach the Lightning Kid to take his own clothes off. This delayed bathtime somewhat, as he was having some trouble getting the hang of it, but the biggest delay probably came from having to put each individual item of clothing into the laundry hamper.


Doors had to be closed. Drawers too. The Lightning Kid had a little miniature couch in his room that his father had pushed to the side once after they were finished playing with it, but the Lightning Kid was not satisfied until it had been pushed flush against the wall.


One couldn't say that the castle was a tidy place, but the King and Queen did get a kick out of the small amount of order that the Lightning Kid tried to introduce amidst all the other chaos...



  1. I love it!
    My Little Ladies could learn a thing or two from your Lightning Kid. :)

  2. Oh my, Princess Natty completely understands this need for order. She has decreed that all doors on cupboards be shut within 20 seconds of their opening.
    Happy WDSD2014 to all x

  3. I found your blog today through a happy series of coincidences and am overjoyed at reading about Lightning Kid and Shark Boy, Princes of the realm. I worked for 28 years as a Disabilities professional and my own royal princess, Pamela, who is 22 and celebrates her Asperger's Syndrome in her own unique way. I will look forward to reading about the Lightning Kid as he grows and the rest of the Royal Family. Are there royal pets? (We have cats, one of whom share's Pamela's princess status).

    1. Thanks for stopping by Andre! Great to hear about Pamela... as for our pet cat (a.k.a our feline son) check out the story of The Lightning Kid and the Stench Beast (January 2013). I'm not caught up on writing our latest adventures, but hopefully soon there will be new chapters for you and everyone to read!

    2. I just re-read, sorry for misspelling your name Ande.
